1/32 Scale Diorama

Postby Daniel » Mon Nov 02, 2020 11:41 am

Also if Flickr gives a much older date, this first photo of the series was taken de 4 April this year.

The baseboard is 80cm X 120cm and built with a very light 10mm thick plywood named "Ceiba" for the frame and 4mm MDF for the top:

The ply strokes where PVA glued and fastened for drying with screws that, of course, will never been removed because I am too lazy for doing so.
The 4mm MDF top was also glued with PVA but and no screws but small spikes arranged the old way: /\/\/\/\/\ .

There was not really a plan but just a desire to 'do something' inspired by an old French postcard where an small arch bridge (or viaduct?) is being built:

A piece of paper convinced me to this general idea:

I love to make plans. I hate to follow them. But -at least in my case- plans have the function of unlocking my creativity which tolerate no bosses even if they are just lines on a piece of paper.
So all what follows is the real story in images.

The rocks you see added in next photos are made of isolating foam used for real buildings. They were part of two previous layouts now dismantled and were recycled hier

What follows is a bit more technical and there are plenty of other ways to do it. But I wanted badly this machine and this project was the perfect excuse to get it.
The photos that show how I made the wooden arch sections for the bridge scaffold using a special device I've made using pieces of 6mm MDF

So were the arch sections made, one by one, for the four arches needed for the scaffold.

Inb next message the photos show the cutting all sections to the right angle:

Thank you Mannick.
I hope you'll keep enjoying.

Does the photo of the Porter mean you model 0n30?

What happenned? Well, there were several not too serious issues but when I saw the whole structure in place I realized that my impulsive move to stain all the parts was simply wrong: such a scaffold is made ussually with untreated wood that may have had several previous lives but certainly not a stain or neat paint. So I took a second chance:

After that first job and making the second set I love the little Proxxon!
