A cracking job as usual Jim, looks like you have cracked the static grass as well! I have yet to 'play' with water as yet (puddles n lakes), but I think I mastered the water tower https://www.newrailwaymodellers.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=44849&start=135#p629152 What did you use as wa...

Re: How to build an animated diorama

Try as I might to think of a ready supply of fan, none came to mind, so I set too cutting segments from a circle and gluing them to spokes and then to a washer using a tiny jig to help set and maintain the angle Windmill fan construct.jpg The frame was also difficult, as it was so delicate, not help...

Re: How to build an animated diorama

So next up comes the rotating head. The base is made and fitted with a brass tube that will slide into a slightly larger one as the axis. Why tube? Because all the electrics will pass through it, as there are two motors up top (main sail and tail rotor) Windmill top shaft for wiring.jpg A crank arm ...

Re: How to build an animated diorama

Not sure the LEDWiz will ever get more developed, more likely that Arduino will be a better/cheaper hardware solution and would be standalone (no PC required to run them once programmed), I am slowly getting to grips with the subject and as they drive servo's very easily they are now my 'go to' for ...

Re: How to build an animated diorama

Hi E2E I will eventually incorporate into my layout and the 4 LED circuits will be controlled by the 64+ outputs from the Computer controlled (timed cycle) system , in the short term, I have yet to program an Arduino (next on the list) to run all the animation for the diorama and may well include 4 ...

Re: Lumsdonia

Forgot to put the Link up! Doh! :roll: Alsager Back in August, I started a diorama that will eventually become part of my layout, I will integrate it into a 'hole' in the baseboard scenery.
