"" I see your picture of the plain dio base, do you have any from that point to finish????
Or sometime can you or someone do a thread on diorama base construction? ""
Some time ago I was asked about diorama bases and the steps that I use to bring everything together.
In answer to those questions I am starting this thread to document the steps and processes I use for diorama
construction, the vast majority of these phases are also detailed within Brett's all encompassing manuals.
Unfortunately this is not actually a SierraWest kit, however it is detailed with purely SWSM details.. (Why
use anything other than the best, right ? )
The structure is a scratchbuild of a building found in Colorado. It is re-named for
my good friend and fellow modeller Kevin O'Niell. The structure is 99% complete, all of the details
have been painted and initially weathered, so, now it is time to bring it all together and start the
dirt work !!
This thread is definately not intended to be a "show and tell" thread, it will be awesome to hear
from all the forum members that are following along.
If you have a question please ask it.... if something doesnt look quite right please point it out...
If you do something differently please offer up that alternative..... If you have a suggestion on how
to make something look better, please say so... We are all here to learn and build better models.
(Of course, if you think it looks great as it is then I would also like to read those comments.)
I am currently clearing the work area and hunting down my scenery supplies in preparation of
starting tomorrow, at which point photo's will be posted and I look forward to plenty of
input into the thread.
