Michael Morris Posted May 6, 2021 Share Posted May 6, 2021 I'm planning my first proper diorama and I'm well outside my comfort zone, so I'm after some advice from experienced diorama builders. My first project is a 1/144 scale diorama of the Apollo Little Joe II rocket on its desert launch pad. This small rocket was used to test the Apollo launch escape system. The rocket (NewWare kit) and launch pad (scratch built) are coming along and it's time I started planning the 16cm X 16cm diorama base in great detail. I need to reproduce a sandy desert area next to a concrete pad. There will be two short sections of rail tracks for which I intend to use some Peco N guage code 55 track to reproduce. I'm intending to use the War World extra fine grey ballast for the track ballast and was thinking of using a blend of their ultra fine sands for the desert. Is this the best way to reproduce desert in this scale? If yes, how would you glue it down? If no, can you suggest an alternative technique? Also, what would be the best method for reproducing concrete in 1/144 scale? Can anyone point me towards guides, books, video guides or products for producing good sea, desert and Steppe landscapes and grassland and concrete in 1/72 and 1/144 scale?
