It represents an old workshop/scrapyard on a board 3ft x 18".  The Ruston sits outside the main building awaiting repairs, the Kerr Stuart "Wren" class rots away in the bushes (rubberised horsehair placed around the model, dilute white glue added and sprinkled with "ivy" (birch seed pods). The work trolley is based on a photo I saw with a compressor and oxy-acetylene equipment on an old skip frame.  All this takes up about half the board, the rest will contain such things as a winch, boiler, stationary engine, tractor bits, etc (whatever I fancy).  All good fun!

We already know it looks terrific. Now you've told us it's pretty big. Where will you display it when it is complete? Will you cover it to minimize dust? Do you have other dioramas of about that size? (If you have a lot of room, then I'm jealous.) -- Russ

As we live in a 2-bed apartment space is at a premium.  The 2nd bedroom (or "den") is where I do the modelling shared with my wife's dolls house.
When completed I guess it will just go to the tip (its the building of the models I enjoy most). There's probably another years worth of working on it then I'll move onto something else. The 1/19th scale locos I've built (the Garratt, an Alco and Byers geared engine) are small enough to fit onto shelves. This is the biggest thing I have made so far - still enjoying it.

Is the track 32mm 2ft gauge or is it wider or is it the way its photographed  but it looks fantastic in many ways - just keep it coming
Barney

Barney, the track is 32mm, it must be the w/a lens on the camera or angle it was taken.
Right, back to the "den" for modelling s its an overcast day so won't do the regulation "exercise" time outside, stocked at the supermarket so have the essentials in (wine, etc).

my philosophy is "life is not what you possess, it's what you do with it".  That's why I have chucked stuff in the past (I also hate clutter - except on model dioramas).  However I'll keep you informed when its completed.
