Hey Gang,

I decided to make some modifications to my original Repair Shed Diorama. First I ripped up the HO Scale standard size track and replaced it with narrow gauge track which I felt better fit in with the Backwoods theme. I also tore out all the plaster rock work at the back of the building and replaced it with the higher detailed Geosedic product from Bragdon Enterprises. While I was back there, I added a scrap area where were old broken parts end up.

I added a new video to YouTube that better displays the inside of the Shed along with the Welding Activity (which comes near the end of the 1 minute clip). Make sure you have your sound turned up to get the full feel of the scene...it takes place as dawn breaks in South Western Colorado at the Deer Creek Lumber Company's Repair Shed on August 20th, 1927.

Here are the pictures reflecting the updates...

I love your modelling, but what I am really impressed with is the photography of your diorama. Beautiful. Just sayin...

Alan,

I like the way you place details throughout the build. They tell a story all their own.

That turned out really nice! Excellent modeling. What do you think of the Bragdon rock casting system?

Thanks for the nice comments. Hey Steve, I bought the tree kits from www.thescenicfactory.com. They take about 45 minutes to assemble each tree.

Alan your SierraWest kit scratch building techniques are by far the best construction and presented models going. Brett, I'm sure knows this to be a fact. You bring his kits to life Tenfold.

Alan,
The backwoods look is outstanding. Dirt, grime, rust, weathered wood all just right! You are very talented!!!

I totally agree with that. Terrific looking scene. The old Mack truck and it's attachments is a gem in itself.

Beautiful work. A couple of the many things I noticed are the irregularity of the rooflines in the main building and the nice subtle, faded red paint in the small building.

Breathtaking...You make it seem as if you're looking at the 'live' structure. Extremely well done...

Thanks for all the nice comments and for recognizing some of the extra little details. In regards to the cobwebs, they are real ones from my basement. I used tweezers to run them across the rafters.
