Are you sure you are not using real wood and saying it's just paper?.... Hard to believe that it is paper, I too will be watching this with great interest as I can see a lot of potential here.

Thank you all for the kind comments.

Ron, someday this paper was wood, than it became paper, and now it's wood again. The circle of life...
Wes, the paint I used is a tube acrylic, the brand is Daler-Rowney but I'm sure many other brands would work as well.

Today, the basis of the diorama has been sceniced. Glue was still very wet when I shot these two pics.





Apart from this, I've also planked seven of the eight sides of the walls (four walls planked inside and outside), and painted two of them - and it was not very easy to get an exact match to the planks painted yesterday : next time, I'll be more patient and wait until the wall is fully done - but I really wanted to see if I would be able to get them the color and texture I wanted.

Thanks Frederic. Another interesting way to stain wood or paper.

Some brands of acrylic would work even better...

And if it is Canson or other quality art paper it did not begin as wood, but as cotton... [:-devil]

Apart from that, you are doing some really good looking things to both paper, wood and scenery, and, for once, for yourself!! Keep it coming!

Thanks, Wes, Tyson and Troels.
Ah, Troels, another learning day for me!

A little drawing to show what I'm wishing to build.



The model was drawn (with some minimal changes) following a picture of Richard Grinyer's Stony Creek Railway featured in the January 2010 issue of Narrow Gauge Downunder (issue #36, page 13).

Frederick,

Nice work ... I like the eves trough and pipe to the water tank. Might have to rig one of my buildings up with eves trough.

Thank you for the comments my friends.

Seeing how small the base for the diorama is, I think I may have to make a little extension for the water tank...

Here is the scene as of tonight. Walls completed and painted, windows installed, I forgot to frame the rear one, I'll do it tomorrow.

There's still some work...

Ah! yes the dreaded extension for the water tank.
It's a tankless job Frederic!

Thanks, my friends. Greg, your joke with tankless is too hard for the poor froggy Frederic...

While I had the scenery products at hand for the base of the cabin's diorama, I also finished the scenery for the big cliff I had made and simply painted a few weeks ago. I also added a second hand retaining wall. This part of the scenery will be declared complete when I have made the snowshed that will take place just to the right of this wall.



Apart from this, I've made some progress on the little house. The floor and a ladder.

Optimistic perspective :



Realistic perspective : yes, there's still a lot of work around it...
