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 ...)

diorama : table fable

... after "finishing" the trilogy-in-coronatime i realized that i had to inventory my purchases and downloads of the last six months ... instead of doing it in a datasheet i got the inspiration by telling a fable to my grankid (4) and seeing a pic of don49plm : his double trouble roundhouse blues ...
so, i imitated that proposal with his tbs 130' roundhouse kit (presented by thebackshop) ... i think he used an other version if i compare the windows and the color of the roundhouse ... and i couldn't recognize that little building in the front, nor the backyard engine- or warehouse, so i used another one ... as a puzzling shortliner addict i added the 90 ft transfertable of bendorsey and an industrial shuntsection ...
... at the same time i wanted to re-promote the great idea of oknotsen in 2015: his m120 module ...
i experimented with his idea and my basic concept ( = 4 dioramas on 1 board) :
- reinstalled his M120 - module example 1 (1 baseboard, basic) <kuid2:645812:12005:2>
- deleted the hall-layer
- deleted 2 grounds (baseboards) in the north and south
- copied the rectangle between the digholes
- replaced it without rotation in the south and with 180' rotation in the north
- deleted the rulers
- deleted the digholes
- heighted ground to value 0.00
- saved new route and session
- exited surveyor
- edited my route (template)
- merged saved new route
- deleted my ground
- saved as ....
... now i have a new template with connections in the north and south to other boards in my conditions (environment settings and effect layers) ...

the fable : the cricket and the ant ...
grasshopper (not david carradine) has spent the summer singing while the ant worked hard to store up food for winter .. when that season arrives, the grasshopper finds itself dying of hunger and begs the ant for food ... however, the ant rebukes its idleness and tells it to dance the winter away now .... (wikipedia)
translated : i cricketycrack in the fall of my life : hardrockin' and quicheatin' ...
moral : in fables is no judgment made ... so, put on your red shoes and dance the blues ... (david bowie)

the inventory
double roundhouse : left showroom is filled with procured steamers from different suppliers in the 1st 5 months of 2020 and the right showroom is completely claimed by all the k&ltrainztuff : stevelerro ...

diorama : evergladz

... in 2017 i made some layouts in t:ane and tmr ... one of them was a copy of my real modelrailroad in the bedroom of my maisonette : berkelman ...
