Since we have this separate area now I'll give this one it's own thread.  I built this about 2 1/2 years ago.









Here's a shot of the derelict Fordson tractor by itself, it isn't very visible in the other photos.



And here's the '53 Chevy by itself out of the barn.



The barn was made out of stryene and then painted to look like wood.

Now that you've teased us with it twice, please tell us more about how you built it. -- Russ

Care to be more specific?  Grin

I don't think I used any special construction method.  Like I said, the barn is styrene painted to look like wood.  The base is just foam insulation with a thin layer of plaster for texture and covered in real dirt.   The Fordson is a Jordan kit.  The '53 Chevy is an old Alloy Forms kit with a tarp made from tissue paper.  The fence is Bar Mills "Insta-fence".  The details came from various HO kits. The trailer was scratch built except for the wheels and tires which came from a Nascar diecast. The truck is a diecast that's been lowered and had wheels/tires swapped from a Jordan kit.

Nice diorama, David. Maybe the truck is a bit clean... Smiley
