It was in 2018 that my wife and I made a Japanese diorama called Manga City, with Manga as the central theme. Our diorama was large enough to give room to a double main line and a city scene: * The diorama. It was some 1 meter x 0.7 meter big, meeting the regulations of the diorama contest of a modelrailroad exhibition that year. By the way, we won the 2nd prize. Some pictures of the diorama: * The city and the railroad tracks. * A scratchbuilt temple. * Along the tracks. * The station. In 2019, we moved to another home. There, I got a real train room (with a door!), but there was not enough space for the diorama: it was too big, too clumsy, too impractical. It didn't fit into a shelve, I coulnd't put it on its side against the wall, it was just standing there in the middle of the room. But demolishing it, well, that wasn't something I wanted to do either.... Or maybe demolish it first, and than rebuilding it in a way that makes storage less complicated? Suddenly, I came up with the idea of using a 'flight case'. You know, the heavy, strong boxes and suitcases there are used by musicians and artist at concerts and festivals. They put their instruments and equipment in those cases, so they must be solid and strong enough to protect a modelrailroad. And not only during transport, but also as a way of storage. It would be a good solution for both my Japanse diorama and my Z scale. So, I bought a second hand flight case, removed most the foam and other stuff that was still in it, and glued some new white foam as a base for the diorama. My wife tore down the old diorama and salvaged all of the buildings, and large parts of the scenery. That makes it a lot easier to rebuild the diorama! So, the large hill with the town had been rescued and could now be glued on its new spot. The small hill with the temple moved to another corner. Since the case has different measures - it is 0.6 x 1.2 meter - than the original diorama, I have to move some buildings. The shops that stood on the front side, are now standing in a new to be developed village on the other side of the hill. The diorama had only scenery on one side, but the new Manga City will get two separate sceneries with a scenic divider in the middle. The scenic divider is a thick sheet of polystyrene I bought at a artists shop. They sell sheets of 4x2 ft. We need some additional buildings. My wife will scratchbuild those, and I will do the new station and most of the scenery.
