Have you ever wondered how an ultra-realistic diorama is made? In this tutorial I’ll show you exactly how to recreate an awesome model that is so realistic it will leave onlookers amazed!
All of the techniques I use to build this model can be used for not only model railroading but they can also be adapted to military modelling, wargaming terrain, scenic diorama builders and maybe even movie sets as well.
The diorama is built in HO scale and depicts a railroad somewhere in country Victoria Australia, the locomotive is a V/Line DRC and usually ran as a single unit, by the 1980’s it was the fastest train in Australia based on it’s average speed of 107kph.Luke Towan
