This is a scratchbuilt model I did basing the idea off the Builder's in Scale Sassen's (sp?) Vinegar. I had entered it into a contest this weekend at our Indian Nations meeting, which was a 144 Sq. inch requirement, any size or shape, as long as it comprised of 144 sq. inches. There were 6 entries, I came in second.

I had built it a few years ago, but I didn't have a name on it, and the scenery had to be re-done, as my skills have improved since them. I changed a few details and added some, that looked better, and am much happier with it now. The tanks are wood dowels covered in Paper Creek siding. The boiler etc., under the shed is a Woodland scenics set I couldn't resist using. The stone foundation are baby blocks from Dr. Ben's, and plaster was used to fill the entire interior of the foundation with the building built on top of it.

I made the sign by printing it out on a computer and cutting it to size, then to make it thin enough to go on the wall, I turned it over and scraped off the paper by wetting it, then scraping the paper off with an exacto knife. It gets pretty thin, so careful handling is key to keeping it from getting torn.

Some of the pictures below have a newer and much larger tree, this one was added a few days before the show, as I wasn't happy with what I had previously put there.

Really nice scene, Tony!

Like the nice subtle grey/ blue colours. The new tree is a great improvement. Really like the photo through the walk-over - takes the viewer right down to miniature size!

Cheers, Mark.

Jim Pete and Mark. Thank you. Here is the first place winner. I wasn't concerned about winning 1st or 2nd, it was just nice to be in the running of either. There was only 2 votes difference. A lot of votes also went to the others too.

Great looking little diorama, Tony. I like the way you did the details and debris around the buildings.

This is the most outstanding diorama I've seen in sometime, Tony. Kudos to the second place win.

Tony, that's a wonderful diorama that you have created there!
I Love the leaf litter detail that's accumulating on the roof.
You would have gotten a first place vote from me.

I remember this diorama Tony...from somewhere else you must have posted the pix....very nice!

What is the clapboard stock?- it's looks rightly uneven...or are they individual boards?
