I have had a blog since 2008 and it now has over 800 posts. I’ve cherry picked the best pieces on this page:
Scenery & Dioramas
Rainy Day Diorama
This was my most popular video of 2020 and isn’t as creepy as the thumbnail picture suggests. I played with showing rain and lighting buildings.
This was a 1/35 scale kit by Doug Foscale from his Diorama Blitz range.
I started playing Tomb Raider back when Tomb Raider 2 was new. I loved the reboot and it was an excuse to build a lava filled chamber… with Lara hopping from stepping stone to stepping stone.

New Haven Layout
This is my Treadwell diorama. I originally planned it in 2012 and built to this stage in December 2014 through to January 2015. You can see the progress here.
I am planning to finish it in 2021!
My New Haven Layout is triple deck in a 12′ square room. Whilst the layout is based on the New Haven, it is not one specific location in New England. I am still not set on an era and may have 3 main dates. My problem is wanting steam and diesel plus I do like some of the later diesels…. There’s a port, city, steam servicing yard and an upper valley branch.
Whilst I started this layout in 2009, no one area is complete and progress has been slow!
My layout includes a number of dioramas:
Memories of the Lake District
I used to go walking in the Lake District every February. It’s a lovely time of year to visit with sometimes breathtaking scenery and fewer visitors. This is a diorama to remind me of those wonderful holidays. The railway is purely fictional but the Ravenglass and Eskdale is worth a trip.
This has been one of my favourite models to build. I love the Mandalorian TV show and, with the Clone Wars, it has made Star Wars one of my favourite shows. Expect to see more Star Wars!
I made three Mini Spaceman dioramas for the Massive Voodoo Challenge.
