Thanks chaps.
I've now glued the house to the base and when that's dry I'll be starting building up the debris and doing a spot of landscape gardening in micro scale.

How tall is it from the cork mounting pad to the peak of the roof? Just curios. I know nothing about this genre of modeling and the different scales. Trying to learn an little more.

I love all this detailing !!!
Not one to nit pick, but it seems to need something to support all that front roof overhang. Probably be a lot of messing around to get it to sag a bit.

The house is 5.5inches high,  4 inches across the front.
The doors I've made are 1 X 1/2 inch to give you an idea.

1/72 (& 1/76) end up as...  1 inch = 6ft...  (Give or take a bit which isn't noticeable at this scale.) so your average bloke is an inch high,  your average car is about 2 inches long

Clay.... I have a plan to jam a bit of interior wall in to support the roof joists.

thanks Ron, i like to have a go, thats for sure.

building now glued in situ and i've started on the ground work .. firstly a slabbed path, (scaled at 3x2)


obviously in the rubble there would be remnants of furniture so i scratched these together, they're made of 1mm balsa split to 1/2 mm and superglued together, just need painting and washing, they don't need to be perfect because they'll be covered partly by debris.


i think a wardrobe, sideboard and maybe a bedstead wouldn't be too much to add either

You're sure making some great progress Snake. This is fun to watch and makes me want to work on my Barn Dio some more.

Thanks guys, appreciate the comments.

Andy, Vision Express did me a set of "modeling glasses" to prescription where the focal point is only 12 inches away from my eyes, perfect eh?

Made the extra furniture ...


and some trees (grape stems with railway scatter/flocking (in mixed colours) as leaves)


this is how the building looks at the moment, a bit more to add and then weather it all in together so it looks "natural"

Looks great. Looking at it, it's hard to believe it's that small.

Thanks guys

Al .... i just get on and do, with dioramas there's always something you can be doing whilst waiting for something to set/dry so they come on in leaps and bounds.

Ive got the trees in situ, some grass round the rear of the house and have added as much as i dare to the rubble without going over the top, there's just some little things to add that won't go overboard and these are .....

some fencing for the rear, his will be part up part down as the tank has crushed it getting into position.


some window frames are started and will be on the ground with a few panes of smashed glass here and there.


I'll get a shot of the house when it's all dry, theres things holding bits in place at the mo and you cant see much.

Nice one clay .....

Grazie Fabrizio.

Here's some shots of the house and grounds before its adjusted (wrecked) to accommodate the tank in the garden.

Great work, Colin. The furniture remnants in the interior really make the scene.

Astounding 1/72nd scale detailing.

Hi Colin,

I've only just caught back up with this sorry, I have to say though I'm really glad I did, it's looking amazing Sir...

Although, whilst your Vision Express explanation is sort of feasible, I still think there's more to my bionic theory...
