A Diorama Challange

My model railway club in High Wycombe (www.hwdmrs.org.uk) has set a challenge to be judged at the annual exhibition WycRail in November. There are a few options, but I will be entering a diorama. To quote the newsletter

The maximum size is 35 cm (W) x 30 cm (D) x 35 cm (H) – to fit on a shelf in the cabinet.

I haven’t done any modelling for years, so this gives me an opportunity to do something constructive. As I have stated before I have a number of kit built wagons, so I will build a small industrial scene with a few of my wagons.

I identified a suitable card kit for the buildings which is exactly the right length. My mother was an art teacher and has promised to paint a small backscene. The hard part will be to make it look busy, but not too busy. If I can get the base and building built in the next couple of months, it gives me a few months to search out and install all those bits that make it look real, such a lamps, huts, crates, sacks, and people. That will be fun.
