Warning: Do not stand under crane when loaded. - E. Stryde

I haven't been around for quite a while but I've been following this site when I have a chance. Sometimes real life just gets in the way. This is my latest diorama and is made of scratch-built and kit-bash structures.

All the wooden structures are scratch-built - the brick is made of two Con-Cor Supreme Bakery kits I had hanging around for many years. The castings are excellent for kit-bashing but
cutting them with a Zona saw was tedious.

Any comments are always welcome.

If you are interested please see my website for more pics of the diorama.

Neil,

Thatís a very nice diorama, especially what you created with a classic kit. Just when you think everything has been done with it that can be done, something new!

Great use of a classic plastic kit.

Nice build! Love the character of the two buildings as one unit. Great weathering!

Hi Greg, Dave, Mike and Ensign:

Thanks for the kind comments.

I had a lot of problems with this build - warping, glue that did not hold the parts together after a few months, etc. Almost didn't finish it. But I did and I'm glad I did.

I have more time now to be part of the community and hope to continue keeping in touch.

Neil
