Thanks Casper, Jess and I are both over the moon with how these turned out. Next job is to paint the insides of the cases :D

Thanks Number1

The interior of the boxes have been painted, the sides were painted to look like sky and clouds. Most of the interior will be covered with scenery and tunnels, so much of it wont be seen, but it was painted just in-case. The smaller display box also has a cardboard insert painted to look like a sky with clouds, this will be trimmed at a later date and glued in place. This will dived the smaller diorama.

Remember our Japanese level-crossing?

I decided to modify these, by downloading an image from the internet and shrinking it down to size before printing it off.

These were cut out and glued in place. A PVA glue/water mix was applied to it. The yellow fencing/barriers at the front were painted white.

Nice job on the signal box, but close up photography can be very cruel!
Must break out mine again sometime. I did buy some fibre optic cable to try and light the interior, but not sure it it's worth the trouble. Perhaps on of those, I did because I can moments!

Love your cases. The look really good. Can't wait to see how big they look with track in place.
Cheers

Thanks Mark,

Even though those close up are cruel, but I'm very pleased with how the painted items look with the naked eye.

Yes I'm well chuffed with the cases and also can't wait to see the track in place.

I look forward to see how you get on will illuminating your signal box with the fibre-optic.
