diorama volvo ce 20

exception updated :

... at first i used a "payware" board by cloning the "content sample" board ...
... it needed to be revised by using my own "new template", so i could merge it with other layouts ...
... i also made the other sides drivable / usable 
by merging & updating the 2 sides of the old diorama "volvo ce" (see top of this page) and adding a new side : backdoor yard ...

... so now it is not an exception anymore and it meets my basic concept (4 in 1) and i can still use it for the same purpose as before: an animated backscreen for a small layout shunting modeltrack ... now with more variations and more ai-trains ...

diorama : itsa factory

... in this diorama i wanted to build 1 large factory hall, with several companies along the railz ... using the walls/fascia for modelroad railroads by philskene and euromodeller ... and for the facades i used some complete buildings and / or separate parts like the build-a-facility assets by davesnow ...
i tried to reskin a fascia with bricks / stones, but i couldn't manage the rescaling from "huge" to model/real scale ... so, i fixed my needs by reskinning more easy stuff, starting with the decals from rudefx and later billboards, signs, splines, scenery (trucks, trailers, bikes etc) ...

diorama : crackit

... cracked earth with exposed veins of life and puzzling railways from t to z
with historical highlights (the blackdiamondbranche and the mcguirelline) and some industrial buildings from east europea & russia (the iron curtain district) ...

in my previous dioramas i used the geographical coordinations of the place where i live now ; in this diorama i changed it into the latitude and longitude of my birthplace by editing the world origin in edit environment / location ... i got those data with the website https://www.gps-coordinaten.nl/ ... you can also try : https://www.mapsdirections.info/ (multiple languages) ...

as these gps coordinates are nearer the equator, the light is almost right above me and i don't have such a dark northern side as it is here in the netherlands ... and also the bright white assets are more contrasting and not just a white reflective surface ...
i want to change all my dioramas now in these more colorfull settings ...

=== the dark northern in my previous gsm settings ===
(... see the difference in pic 15 of the gallery ...)
