    Hello fellow modellers, I have started another 4”x4” plinth diorama build. This will be based around a small section of transporting clay. The items I will use for this diorama are:

    Peco track
    Bachmann China clay wagon
    Disused stone building
    Stone walling
    Ground cover such as grass, ballast and some flowers

    Here is a picture of my build start.

    Hello fellow modellers, I have been busy with my little diorama. The derelict building has been built, painted and weathered which has turned out really well.
    The stone wall has been built, painted and weathered. The stone yard area has been laid ready for painting and weathering.
    I hope you like my work, more to follow.

    Hi first of all can I say thank you for pushing the likes button.
    Last evening the ballast was laid and it’s dried nicely, just needs a little bit of weathering applied. This morning I have added the static grass and I am happy with the result.
    Still more to do on this little diorama. A few pictures of my work.

    Afternoon all, I have managed to weather up the ballasting.
    A few more items have been added to my diorama, cement bags and pallet are in place now. I have also added my own buffer stop made from joining sleepers together as this type of thing was used on some sidings.
    I think a few wild flowers and a clay wagon will finish this diorama off nicely.:)
    A few pictures of my diorama.
