Don't tear up this version of the diorama. Nothing wrong with it; it is acceptable. -- Russ

Are the bricks made of colored plaster?

Yes Ray they are coloured plaster bricks - I used Diorama Debris https://www.dioramadebris.co.uk
silicon moulds 1/24th scale coloured with brick red dye
Diorama debris do international shipping
because this is an inside model I have used  standard Plaster of Paris I find you can actually give the bricks a more weathered look because they "crumble" easer - the normal moulding plaster dries much harder more like  porcelain and is good for the outside

Is that the same brick making technique Nick uses? It looks familiar and very good. -- Russ
