    Hi I have been quiet on the forum as late due to an unforeseen death in the family. It’s been hard to get motivated in some sort or modelling but I’m pleased I have pushed myself to building a scenic diorama.
    The diorama is 170mm x 65mm and will be ideal for showing off an Andrew Barclay GWR loco which I treat myself to.
    The main chunk of the diorama is complete apart from adding some weathering powders to tone the ballast down slightly. I’m also going to add a trainspotter and a few tiny lineside items.
    I have uploaded a progress picture..

    Looks really good. Very realistic with the detail and weathering so far. :thumbs:

    Thanks Kim, I’m going to add a few gorse bushes today and start the weathering.;)
