Last year I posted a few pictures of a shed I was working on and then kind of disappeared. 

I thought maybe a few of you would be interested in seeing how I managed to squeeze everything together.

Hi Terry.

TOTALY AWESOME DUDE !

Toooo much to like !

I love the ground-contours.
It must have taken some serious planning to get the look.
The kinda 'eroded' & 'downhill-gravity'...
(dunno how else to describe it)
... looks, well ... REAL !

Brilliant !

Si, I love your description. 
Thanks.

I love old farms, too. 
Some of what is in this diorama are things that I remember about the farm I grew up on.


Herb, I keep changing things on Tickle Belly, the little town module that I drag to a few shows each year. 

Fuzzy Foradini has been partitioning for a new building for his son's barber shop. 
Ryan is trying to get the town to build a fire hall for the new pumper the town just purchased and has housed in his barn. 
His pipe business is taking off and he needs the space. 

So there's always stuff to get done, I guess.

Hi Terry ,

I really love your work. The setting and the weathering are very convincing.

Please show more pictures of Tickle Belly.

Thanks, Wolfgang. 


Most of what I do is influenced by the Australian modelers. 
I never tire of seeing what those guys do. 
I have also studied Brian Nolan's work and was lucky to have seen some of his dioramas last year. 
And, of course, Dave Revelia's models. 
There are many others.



Here are a few more pictures of Tickle Belly, named after the town's only claim to fame - the Tickle Belly Bridge. 
When our kids were young, they loved when we drove a little too fast over the bridge.










































If you click on the Flickr link at the end of the post, you will be able to see more images of what I have done.


Thanks,

Terry

Daniel, thanks for looking. 
It’s always a good feeling when I hear that someone likes what I have done. 

All of this stuff is 1:48. 
I’ve been tempted a few times to try some modeling in larger scales, but I don’t have room for what I build now. 

I gave the Tickle Belly module to a friend who lives near a large city. 
He has room for it, and lots of modelers he knows get to see it. 

Terry
