Hi all can't really get into any serious modeling (no time) but decided to try another idea with the fountain made the paving slabs out of stiff paper and added pre shading, I think it's going to be OK, not sure how I'm going to handle the curb stones.

Nice effect for the paving stones. Not sure what the curb stones would look like so I have no useful ideas there, sorry.

Hi all well I've started on the fountain (not sure how to do the corner ornamentation yet) but I pleased with how it's starting, this is a picture frame upside down and a bit of the ornamentation filed off its actually 2  mil to low in scale but that's only a couple of inches overall.

Excellent work on the stones and steps and a brilliant inspiration for the fountain! It all looks incredible already, I eagerly anticipate the further development

Hi all I've realised I've made a huge error with this, so huge in fact that I'm just going to have to call it a London like dio (I could never have modeled half of Eros anyway) I was so busy trying to get the hight right on the fountain, I forgot about the area of it, wasn't till I put a 1/24 figure up to it (as someone suggested) I realised, i have the width totally wrong should be at least twice as long as I have it. Although I could remake it, it would mean redoing the steps, again on could do that, the problem is I would have to scale the rest of the dio up and it's already a metre square, I have nowhere to keep a dio of over 2 metres square, so it will just have to be the way it is.

That's a shame. I know what you mean about space to display large stuff.

Hi all well since I can't work on herbie at the moment (still waiting for decals) I decided to do a bit to this.



As you can see from this the fountain is utterly wrong, grrrr, 



Revell made a mistake



Oops

OK so here's another update.





And I thought since this is the London bus dio I'd better start the bus (it's a lot bigger than you think and I've run out of red paint now, not even enough to finish the body on this so now I have to get some more)

Dio can be used for a smaller scale project, maybe a 1/72 WWII fighter plane or (1/72) military vehicle "anniversary" public show?

I agree the diorama base is nice and should be used on a future project.

In their present state, Scania engine more interesting, colorful. The Leyland, with so many molded-in parts all same color as engine, looks less realistic. That's my view. I've never seen any Brit Bus models in person so this is interesting to me.

Sorry to hear about the scale and size issues ... one of those occupational hazards of dio building. As for the engine, I agree with Harron that the Scania is more interesting and 'real' looking.
