that is very nice to have all that detail contained in the diorama with the images on two sides to "frame" the scene.

Hi all here is tonights progress.
I decided that this scrapyard should have everything including a kitchen sink, but I don't have a 1/16th sink,so I devised a cunning plan to make one.
first I measured my sink then a made a 1/16th former.
then I cut a piece of ply 2mm bigger than the former (I will be using 2mm plasticard as my hot air gun has bit the dust I will be using a blow torch so need a fairly robust piece of plastic)for pushing the plastic over the former.
oops I did not heat the plastic up enough so only got it half way down before the plastic cooled down, then getting it off I snapped it so I had to make another one.
unfortunatlely I snapped this one getting it off as it was so tight, but this is what I got 
and with a bit of cutting and drilling this is what i got 
then when painted and added to the scrap yard here is the effect

You have a very pronounced eye for details and I love the kitchen sink and the broken window in there! This is one of those Dios that you can look at for hours. Just like your others. Keep 'em coming!

thanks M Brindos and Eduardo here is tonight's instalment I have not done anything with the wood on the train as I have no idea how to weather plastic wood I may remove it altogether if I can't work out how to age it.

Hi all well I'm calling it finished so this scrap yard is destined for the scrap draw as I have no room for it.
