I was bored yesterday afternoon, pottering around in the garage I had a play with Mengantuk Lembah then thought that I could make something even smaller to run the fishing line powered Del Prado railcar on.

N SLT d1 01

Kleinstedorf (smallest village) was born. Twelve inches by four and a half inches, not exactly big, hence the name. It didn’t look much at first, just an off-cut of chipboard and a foot of N gauge track, but a diorama this size doesn’t take a lot of work!

With some filler added as basic ground cover the model was left to set overnight.

Paint and scatter were added before breakfast today and the diorama placed on top of the bins to bake in the early morning sunshine. Later in the morning I added the backscene and some trees to hide the off stage area.

Under twenty four hours after starting the project it is completed, or will be once the glue has dried and the pegs can be removed from the trees, even with a diorama this size most of the time involved is the same as it is with larger layouts, just waiting.
