Whilst we are waiting on suppliers of parts to continue the loco test builds for Highlander Models; and me not being someone to stand around letting the grass grow under my feet I started making a scenic diorama for Toto's sales shop which loco's can be displayed on. This diorama setting will basically consist of a double track on an embankment and a steel girder bridge crossing over a small river, the bridge will be made from bits of brass etch offcuts and I shall use my usual creative flair on the ground cover which will include small bushes and long grasses. The scene is located onto a piece of sterling board reinforced to prevent warping and measures 50 inches x 18 inches... so it will be suitably robust to stand up to the rigours of shows, no doubt the Highlander Models Storage and Cartage Dept will be suitably able to deal with all the necessary logistics. So I've made a start on the bridge form using offcuts of moisture resistant MDF and some styrene which begin forming the shape of the embankment. Photos taken this afternoon.
