Temporary dioramas
Having built several small layouts and dioramas following North American and German prototypes, all of them in TT scale, I have still much more modelling ideas than I have time and space to model them. That is, why I recently tried a new approach with temporary dioramas. These dioramas are no permanent layouts but temporarily arranged scenes of vehicles and structures photographed in front of a matching background. My first two examples, you see at:

The interesting point of the American diorama is the background picture, which is a modified screenshot from a computer game (World of Subways, vol. 1). It shows an industrial scene in Jersey between Newark and NYC. So far as I know, this might be the first attempt to combine graphics from computer games with railroad models.

Pictures of my 'real' dioramas and of my diorama-style US layout, you find in these Flickr albums:
