  • A couple of kitbashed facades for the layout. I started with a couple of castings from my company, Dioramas Plus. The kits I used were Juno Beach House & French Bakery. The kits are designed for military modelers but I figured they'd work well for my purposes. I cleaned up the castings, painted & weathered them, and then added custom roofing. The building on the left has real wood shingles, the one on the right, vacuformed tile. The flowers are just bits of crinkled paper glued into some moss. I'll "plant" this next week, but I need to dig up a little finished scenery to be able to do so. I have just the spot for it. Questions?

    • Tearing up scenery to do a "remodel". OK. I need a place to plant my 2 new buildings. I designed them to fit in one particular spot, I did so, however, after I had already finished the scenery in that section. No worries, that's what a utility knife & putty knife are for.

      I wanted to plant these 2 buildings to the left of the large tan building in this first photo. To do so though, I'd need to get rid of the sculptamold and grass in that section.



      I carefully measured, cut the edges with the utility knife, and then pried out the grass section with the putty knife. It came out in one clean piece, because I do all of my scenery sections on sheets of cardboard.



      I cleaned up the mess with shop vac....



      And then plunked the 2 new facades in place. They are held in place by 2 small drywall screws so that they can be removed for maintenance and cleaning.



      I still need to add straw bales/figures etc but you get the gist of how the new facades look.

      • An overall shot of the layout. Still need to replace the Dunlop bridge with a more accurate model and add a lot more figures. Getting there.

        • I made a Coca Cola billboard for the circuit. While they did have some of the "classic" Coke logo billboards, in 1970 this more plain version was also seen at the track. I used styrene to create it, spray painted it white, and then aged it a bit using flat tan & primer gray. These are both just sitting here loose yet, I need to trim the bottoms to fit the terrain & glue them in place.

              • An update!

                When the pandemic hit in the spring of 2020 my business (producing diorama model kits) went absolutely bonkers, and I've pretty much been working 7 days a week just trying to keep up. That's the great news! The bad news? Not so much time for my layout. So what I did is to sort of "mothball it" and covered it w/a plastic tarp. I hope to finally finish it off this year by adding final details and a nice looking skirting, and here's the big news, I'll be looking at selling it at that point. The price? TBD. I won't be giving it away but it won't be going for anywhere near what the beautiful SlotMod layouts go for either. If you're potentially interested in buying it, just message me & I'll send you more details as that starts to happen. I live in Montana (USA) & the layout is about 12' x 6', and breaks down nicely into 3 4' x 6' sections.
