ABANDONED STATION BUILDING

The 12th Australian Narrow Gauge was coming up (Easter 2015) and my preferred section in the modelling competition is for 'DIORAMA' . It's a section that I have won once and came close a few times over the years. Because it is an attendee based voting system, the model has to be visually impressive tt attract votes. It is also always good to push your modelling skills to a higher level. It always to build a model that looks difficult to design and build.

The diorama was fortunate to win 'Best Diorama' at the convention.
In this model there wasn't any part that was really difficult, mainly a matter of doing the thing and using the same technique over and over again. Below are some in progress photographs of the diorama. The white card base is there to keep the stumps in place until the structure is added to the finished diorama base.
Below are some finished photographs of the diorama.
