Hi all. I'm building an S scale small diorama in a wooden tray.
Size is 270mmX210mm.
I'd like to show some pix of the diorama.





This small structure was made for On30 micro layout. Later this was converted to S scale.



Sn2, but 9mm gauge, and Sn42 dual gauge track on the pier.



















Don't swim here! :bg:



Present condition of the diorama.



Thank you for seeing. To be continued.

Junior

If I did my math right that is about 10.5" x 8"
You people in Japan really know how to pack a lot
into a small space.
I'm glad you posted this, what a great learning tool.
Your modeling skills are very apparent, but what
really shines is your artistic presentation
Outstanding.

Ronnie,

Thank you so much!
I noted that the color looked natural. The gray is a basic color of this diorama.


Herb,

Thank you so much!

Please do not inform the public health center. ;)


Pipopak,

O.K. I never mind. L:


Carl,

I think such diorama seems like Japanese traditional BONSAI
http://img.blogs.yahoo.co.jp/ybi/1/38/f0/snr_zohsan/folder/272236/img_272236_6319677_0?-1
BONSAI is a condensed scene of nature. So, it's a diorama by natural materials.
Diorama might be a Japanese forte.


AZnarrowgaugefan,

Thank you so much!
But, your new project is more fantastic, I think.:thumb:


Junior

Well, I added a small crane on the pier.
Easy-to-build one day project. :)













I used gloss polymer medium for "water."



Thank you for seeing.
To be continued.

Hi Junior:
congrats for your excellent modeling!. There is a thing you may want to correct: the rigging for the crane is wrong and it will not work as is. I made a sketch to show the proper way to do it:
