O Gauge diorama built in super-fast time.

"Cor, is that the time... I must be due a tea-break..."

Never one to hang around while waiting for paint to dry, I've managed to build a 4ft long 'O' gauge diorama over a couple of afternoons this week. Working in spurts between paint spraying jobs, progress has been swift and a number of fine details and scenics have benn added today. I also took advantage of the nice Spring sunshine to grab a few snaps out in the garden, using only natural light; it's nice to introduce some authentic shadows. The diorama has allowed me to roadtest a number of new scenic products for future review in Model Rail, as well as providing a pleasant backdrop for photography. With a number of 7mm rolling stock and building kits about to be assembled, it should prove its worth soon enough.
