    The sides of diorama were made using thin plywood.

    Excellent work! I like the really fine handrails on the load dock. Are they photo-etched? Simple details sure make the rest of the model come to life.

    Handrails are photoetched parts - ships railings for 1/200 scale as far as I remember.

    Everything looks great. That Kibri building is versatile. I use photo etched N-scale ladders with one rail removed for railings. Jim

    Thank you for your comments. There was no much progress with this diorama during last weeks. I started to collect small items to make it better looking in the future. Vehicles proper for 1930-1940 are a starting point. First ones I got are Opel Blits and Mercedes Benz vans. They are 3D printed and painted by myself:

    Thank you. In most cases there is more "to look at" comparing with "to read" in my posts.

    A picture is worth 1000 words, so they say, but you are correct, it's more looking than reading.

    Very nice! Where did you get the .STL files for the prints? Resin printed? The 3D Printing & More forum would like to see these in Z...

    They are designed and 3D printed by a fellow modeller from Z Friends International Forum.

    I am very happy to find on Shapeways also trucks produced in Poland in 30ties: Fiat 618, Fiat 621 and Ursus A. I added some loads as well:

    It is time to go back to the diorama itself. I have do design last warehause building. It is based on old photos but must be much smaller and simplified due to the available space. Starting point is a mock-up.
