Branch Line Display Case
This new O gauge case diorama features a stretch of single line on a low embankment, passing an idyllic half timbered cottage surrounded by woodland. The header picture shows the full 750mm width, and it will accommodate a small locomotive with a carriage or pick up goods as a display subject. Contact me from the menu and give me a call if you like the look of it.
This view of the case diorama has a Stirling eight foot single taking the stage to give an idea of the scale. The case has a completely clear upper cover and a gloss black base, it would suit a collector of 7mm scale branch line stock.
Trees & Foliage
Trees of different scales can be combined into the same scene like this to help introduce an illusion of distance.
I always keep a number of trees in stock, both relief backscene types and fully modelled versions. If you think they would suit your style please give me a call or email me with some size sketches and type and colour reference.
