Hi Si:

Thanks for the generous comments.


It's fine that you put the two posts together.

I have to say that it was George's work that inspired me to take my barely adequate, early attempts at modeling to the next level.

That of course is in addition to joining blogs such as Free Rails and others.

Keep up the good work. :wave:

Neil

Hi Neil  :wave:



Well it's good to be inspired by fellow enthusiasts & 'pros' like George of course !  :thumb:

Freerails provides a small glimpse into the HUGE amount of modelling, we still don't see ...

... but compared to 'back in the day', when I suppose magazines & shows, were IT, we are very lucky today indeed !  :)


Putting a number of structures together in one diorama was a good idea.  :old dude:

... they look GREAT how you set them out.



Your small railroad 'dock' or platform or whatever yer wanna call it ... is very appealing to me.  :moose:

The kinda small scene that many modellers could fit into tight spaces in most scales !  L:

Looks really  C  o  o  l  .






:cool: :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool:



Si.

Great work.

Which FSM kit features the largest building in your diorama?

I can't place it in my mind.

Hi Si and Daryl.

None of the structures in this diorama were FSM kits or from any other manufacturer.
They are all scratch-built of basswood and other materials.
I took the liberty of changing the structures to some degree although they are all based on photos in George's V.1 FSM book.

Daryl: The larger structure does not have a name but is located next to the A.Zol Co building on page 61 off the aforementioned FSM book.
That poor book is dog-eared at this point and almost ready to fall apart from use.
If you want a pic of it let me know and I can email it to you.

And...thanks for the comments about my work.

Neil

Thanks Neil.
I misunderstood and thought this was one of George's kits.
Great looking model.

I meant to Post a couple more photos of Neils 'loading dock' part of his diorama ...

... I'm really taken with it, as the perfect kinda small railroad scene, that could fit ANYWHERE !  :)
