Just completed a display diorama for a friend. The scale display, is 1.2m x 0.40m x 0.40m in dimension. It is mostly for displaying 1:50 scale truck models, at exhibitions. I have come a long way and have done a lot of home made rock molds and scratch build details. I've even included handles that would make it easier to managed when moving it around. I also tried to make it as sturdy as possible, as it will be moving around quite a lot. I will also be weathering the truck combo you see on the display. I just used it to take photos of the layout in its entirety. Hope Tobias and Fredrik like it. I tried to mimic new/old patch roads, after many years of heavy traffic across this region, especially by truck drivers. The truck will be weathered with some heavy dust, so I am going to give it a try using an airbrush. Not my strongest side, but in this scale and weathering 'Middle Eastern weathering on trucks, an airbrush is the only way to go.

Excellent job. I'm currently enjoying building a couple of dioramas too. Just bought myself a static grass applicator but haven't tried it yet. It'll be great I'm sure. I'll post the results on here

I bought a Gaugemaster Gras Master Mk3. It was on special for about fifty GBP. It seems to get good reviews, though if you have the time and a bit of expertise, making your own can be just as good.
