I also bevel the edges of plastic roofs for the same effect. Jim
I got back to older dioramas with some final touches. Backdrop is a very good addition:
Photos are not very good - just made with my mobile phone without natural light but I am happy that I was able to find a backdrop which really fits to the diorama:
I really like that fall foliage! It really makes the scene vibrant. Very nice!
The second diorama is based on military training area ramp. This backdrop is not that spectacular but I think it adds the quality to this diorama as well:
Absolutely creates a depth of field that enhances the look.
I got custom-made decals. for my harbour diorama. Barges and the ship got it's names:
The decals make a big difference, look great!
Whoa, very nice!
There will be some railway in the port. I have to decal some items for Period II. The first one is ready:
Great job on the barge decals. I agree with Rob.
Nice weathering job on the coal wagon.
Decals brought those boats to life! Nicely done!
Nailed it yet again! Looks awesome with the decals and weathering.

I have more cars for diorama. At the moment there are 10 and I plan to have some more plus 1-2 steam locomotive. With railway equipment diorama is getting alive more and more ..
Very cool! The diorama populated with rail wagons is the final touch.
These results are outstanding! I continue to be very impressed.
I added Marklin gas lamps on the street:
For the water part I decided that there will be a representation of sunked ship lifting-up operation. I want to use another Artitect resin ship but this is a waterline model. I made remaining part of the bottom using Green Stuff:
The bottom was grinded and the whole ship painted:
I added first layer of "water" and started to setup the whole scene with installing ropes to fit the hooks ofpontoons:
There will be some "water on the bow" effect. It takes time for this Woodland Water Effects to get dry:
