I'm always looking for 1/35 scale train modeling on the web. I happened onto this build thread done by gentleman on a military modeling website. It's very nice work and there are some interesting techniques used there too.

Here is the link:  http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=185546&ord=&page=1

Enjoy....

Holy Carp! That's really cool and one helluva dio project. 1/35 scale standard gauge trains, tracks and buildings quickly take up some real estate. The detailing on the individual pieces is amazing ... and he seems to be doing that on the whole, sprawling dio. Wow! :shocked:

Don't ya just love the way he did the stove pipes with bendable drinking straws? I thought his brass bolt heads were pretty cool too. You're right about the detail level too. The door with the latch detail is fantastic... Not to mention the guns and stuff.

Over the years, I have been to IPMS (International Plastic Modelers Society) meets and have been amazed at the quality of the work shown. 1:35 dioramas can be really large and the detailing is top rate. Model railroaders should broaden their views by attending such shows and perhaps reading magazines aimed at the military modelers.
I remember one such diorama which was over 6 feet long and depicted the allies entering a French village. There must have been way over 100 soldiers and almost as many villagers in the scene and none of the figures looked the same. Knowing how long it takes to mess with figures in this scale makes the scene all the more fantastic. And that was just ONE diorama out of maybe 50 or so and several hundred models. The last time I was at a model rr convention, there may have been less than 50 models shown. Seems that we need to get to work and make more stuff, we're falling behind model-wise.

Dang it, man ... no raining on the parade!  Here we are peacefully slobbering over SOMEONE ELSE's hard work ... and now you're trying to make a job for us.  That's just dirty! :P
