  1. Thanks for your comment regarding the plants on my model. I admit to finding them to be hardest and most painstaking element of my dioramas to create. However, if you at them as part of the whole scene, rather than viewing them in isolation, which is I think what you are doing, I don't think they are as bad as all that. I aim for an overall look rather than an ultra precise, super realistic, correct to scale, model. I now realise the close up photos tempt the viewer to look at individual details in isolation so I won't be posting similar photos again. View the finished model in its entirety as a complete setting and I think it stands up well.
  2. Hi All Here's another of my sheds/garages/barns. I did this one about 2 years ago. The car is a Matchbox 1/32 MG TC.
  3. Thanks Turbofan. I'm thinking the 1/32 Aifix Aston Martin DB5 and the 1/35 Tamiya BSA M20 Motorcycle. Plus some farm machinery and other junk all suitably rusted up!
  4. When I was building this one I found these elsewhere online. https://www.scale-models.co.uk/threads/triumph-tiger-80-1-9-italeri-conversion.26476/ http://www.pwm.org.pl/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=85616 On the first one not only did he rebuild the wheels but he also made wire springs to go in the seat! The result is incredible. The Polish guy rebuilt the wheels too but also made a new carb out of brass. This stuff is way beyond me!
  5. Thanks all. I've seen some superb builds of this model where the wheels have been rebuilt with fine wire spokes and massive amounts of detail have been added. I'm more about the overall look of the thing. I wish I had the patience and the skill for the other stuff.
  6. Thank you. Cans/tins are a piece of cake. Bits of tubing painted and a printed label wrapped around them. Square cans such as the Oxo and Castrol ones are cut from erasers, painted and printed labels applied. Why Aston Clinton to Weston Turville Road?
  7. Some photos of my next project have now been posted in the Dioramas work in progress thread.
  8. I hate posting pics of unfinished work but as requested here are a few shots of my next 1/32 diorama. The brick/stone work has had several coats but needs more dirt thrown at it. The woodwork also requires more painting. The four walls are not yet joined hence the gaps. I love the messy, long-neglected look because you can get away with shoddy model making! At least my bricks seems more in scale on this one. I very rarely measure things and tend to simply trust my modellers eye to tell me what size things should be. If you've seen my Aston Martin Ulster diorama you'll probably have noticed how massive the bricks are! Whoops!
  9. I've seen some wonderful builds of the Italeri 1/9 Triumph 3HW. My technical modelling skills can't match them, but as it is painting models that really butters my parsnips, I went for an unloved civilian look.
  10. There is. I hate showing them unfinished but I'll try and take some pics later.
  11. Another of my dioramas. Matchbox 1/32 Aston Martin Ulster in a scratch built autumnal setting.
  12. Hi. I built this 1/24 Revell '32 Ford a couple of years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed giving the paintwork the 'Rat look'.
