A little background on my Diorama skills and A Dio Update.

Normally I wouldnt upload so many build update's, But I really wanted to share this build and various techniques of it with the up-and-coming Modeller's out there. (many updates actually slows progress down haha)

My Diorama building skills are actually carried over from Scale Model Railroading which was introduced to me by my Dad when I was a kid, This is a man who used too scratch build structures using matchsticks and cardboard. (this structure is my fathers' and is 36yrs old now)
Rail Road Structure scratch built from match sticks and cardboard, and keep in mind that this thing was ("BUILT 36 YEARS AGO")

So after sharing a little bit of backround with you, and as my dad used say to me : (ITS ALL ABOUT THE DETAIL'S CHRIS)

Now on to the Dio Update:
Added a Guard post with fence and barrier, plus some more internal details to the Quonset Hut.

I have used various techniques on different components of this Diorama so far:
Salt Weathering( with pepper and sugar too).
Sponge Chipping.
Wash's using poster paints.
Lead pencils.
Free Handing Brush Strokes.

I hope you are enjoying this as much as I am....Till the next update.
