Diorama Rosenbahn part 4

Diorama built by Rosenbahn part 4

During the building process was the diorama shortly showed on a exhibition in Halsteren. Nice respons and questions about building technique were asked during the day.

Gardens has to be decorated with bushes and flowers. This is also produced ourselves. It is a relatively simple task with a nice looking result. As base material garden pool filter wool is used. This is available at every garden center and can be supplied as course and fine material. It is pulled apart to achieve an very open structure. It can easily been cut to the desired sizes or teared apart. It is advisable to paint it dark brown with an airbrush or or an aerosol with acrylic paint. We have add small droplets of PVA glue on a Polyethylene  (PE) sheet and add the small bushes carefully in it. Let it dry and then apply a thin spray layer of glue over the tufts. Sprinkle in the glue some turf and foilage. Sometimes you must repeat it depending how dense it must be. Let it dry overnight and due to the PE sheet it can be removed easily. Glue and paint doesn’t adhere good on polyethylene material. The bushes are now ready to plant in the gardens.

Lighting in the houses is now all connected and the street lamps are also placed. The village population comes outside their houses to see what their village will look like.

And yes also the street lights works. The residents are very pleased with the result. It can be extremely dark in a mountain village so illumination of the village is very welcome.

The shepherd also looks satisfied and continues his daily work. His wife is on the way with the lunch so his day can’t go wrong.

Although some apparently have to do quite heavy work.

Just a view of the complete village.
