Default A little diorama in progress

I've been putting together a diorama to try some scenery techniques, and it's about 90% done, so I thought I'd share some photos.








A closeup of some of the trees:


I still need to add crossing gates, fence posts, mile markers, etc. but I'm very happy with the way it has turned out so far.

Cheers,
Mike

It's a very manageable 35 x 60 cm...easy to work with on the drafting table.

35 X 60 cm? Considering the length of the train I think it's in N scale... and in that case, this is GREAT!

Your trees are exceptionally realistic. Can you please share the methods that you followed to build them? I think everyone would love to know the secret...

Thanks and have a good day...

Thanks for the compliments, but it's not N-scale. This is a Z-scale diorama. Glad you liked the trees...I've gotten several requests for details on how I made them, and I'll be happy to share the details when I get a chance.

Cheers,
Mike

Id never have guessed that was Z-Scale. The detail is phenominal for such a small scale. Very very very well done indeed!!!
