Wow, how fun is that diorama? Were so glad to have you here on Hobby Talk, thanks for joining the fun. I really like the way you created so many different scenes in such a contained space. Very well thought out.

having a small house and 2 kids means it can only stay small, they'll be 18 one day:rolleyes: its 90cmsx57cms and forever changing although i may scale it down just a tad to please the misses:thumbsup: may have a go at building a smaller 'scene' rather than a set-up :)

thanks for the welcome (p.s. i also like scrap, classic cars and ruins, abandoned buildings (which seem to feature heavy in my work lol):dude:

There are some great 1:64 scale dios and junk yards on the boards even as we speak. That might free up a little room as well.

By the way...is that "Thumper" I see on the back shelf in that overhead shot?

re-organisation of the yard (with the planned downsize) means its now like this...

testing out the new lighting, pole will also have a satellite dish and security cameras attached at later date for more realistic feel :D

Is the owner living in that old caravan? Or just the night watchman? Tell him to get a junk yard dog! ;)

So what is it exactly? - looks too big to be a camper/caravan... :confused:
