    Hi this diorama build will be based on a little lamp hut besides a length of track. The diorama base is made of solid oak is 4”x4” in size.
    As you will know I try to add as much detail as possible and I am looking forward to sharing this build with the forum. This is special as it’s going to be a commissioned diorama where the proceeds will go to the Alzheimer’s society.:thumbs:

    Hi Yorkie thanks for your support and comments, I have started the little diorama by adding the track and the fenced area. I will add a picture tomorrow in better light.:thumbup:

    As promised a picture of the progress on my diorama. The track has been laid and weathered, the fence has been painted then erected in its place.
    Today I have built and started to paint the little lamp hut and a small stone section has been painted ready for weathering.
    This is for the lamp hut and surrounding area.

    Looking good...! :thumbup: Just be careful with any sharp edges on those rails as they are lose to the beveled edge of the timber base. ;)

    Cheers, Gary.

    I have managed to do a little more work on the diorama. The little lamp hut has been painted and weathered and glued in its place.
    Hopefully today I will tackle the ballast work.
    Im happy with the way the diorama is looking.
    Here are some pictures of my progress..

    This morning I have been adding the grass to the little lamp hut diorama. It’s always nice to get some greenery down..
