Hi Mike,

could not find the Pringles can tanks on the site. Are they also available as download?
I guess these would also match 0-gauge due to their size.

I did upload the Prince kit as not sure if it was worth it as it will only be good for UK sized prince cans. Maybe I'll upload with a warning for UK only.

Plus it's one of those kits that can't be resized due to the fact the inner core is a prince can.

Cheers Mike

Thats looks great. :) Not often you see open retaining walls on a layout like that.
Thanks

Wonderful work. It's a Wordsworth Model Railway backdrop I guess ?

Certainly is Kerluk. I used a scaled down version in a non railway diorama, along with a modified version of one of Mike's buildings.

Nice work. What size (A3, A4...) and kind of paper did you use for this diorama ?

Going that extra mile.

Mike's other new offering with some DIY windows and internal features.
The addition of acetate windows allows an internal backscene to be included.
It is set back at 3cm which provides a 3D effect when viewed from different angles.
The side walls and roof were increased to the same depth of 3cm.
The addition of internal lighting adds to the effect of full depth.

The scale I used is 1/144th, and I just used ordinary A4 printer paper, the image just scaled down to the size I wanted it. The Hurricane in the foreground is motorised , powered by an Xmas light battery box now mounted behind the backboard. The only railway items used were Peco figures re-painted as RAF personnel.

That bonded warehouse mod looks great, the 3D effect works brilliantly and I'd say the lighting is right for an industrial building

I do like the backscene mod in the warehouse too. Very nice. Mike: How about incorporating that & windows into the kit
:D

Not the actual background image I used for the warehouse but this is very similar :

Just size and crop the image to suit your warehouse model and position it some distance behind the windows.
For the windows, check Mike's single road engine shed, (the one that includes a large water tank)

Looking at that warehouse picture, next time you are in Ikea take a happy snap down any stock aisle.
