I would love to build my own quarry on this scale, it's brilliant!!! Not sure where it would go though?!! Maybe I need a big shed, but my garden is too small

Hello
Thank you all for your interest in Lorramine.

"Kokosing"
I am preparing some overall photos so that you can properly situate the staging.

"Jamie"
I don't think a shed is the ideal place to place a diorama, unless the temperature can be regulated, because the models and materials of the dio's structure do not appreciate variations in temperature, humidity, sun. ..
The ideal is a temperate room. At home, it's in the attic, the space under the roof, but as soon as it's sunny, I close the curtains.
Goodbye

Can we please see another shot of the overview?


kokosing,

Here below a few general shots of the mining diorama built in Denis' attic:









I'll post some other pictures another day.

Regards.

Craig,

As far as I remember, water spray effect is made with cotton:



Picture issued from page 5 of this same topic. But I'm sure that Denis will expand on that trick.

I hope it helps.

I have just got an e.mail from Denis indicating that the water spray was made of a thin insulation product (see below), used for housing cramped zones, like shutters for example. It is fixed on a thin wire to keep it right:

That's just over the top realism. Thanks Denis and Guy. One of the top five threads ever, if not the top. Craig

I recently started browsing your forum and was impressed by the first topic I saw, Paul's!
The models are superb and the quality of the photos is remarkable! I will continue to view the other subjects, but it will take me time because I am way behind...

Goodbye


Thank you for the compliment. I hope one day I can make a diorama for my models:

Regards,

Following some comments made on the lack of rigidness of the signals, Denis replaced originals by thin cardboard-made "flags":
