Elmore 1972 Train Diorama

Post by timgould on Mon 30 Jan 2012, 4:57 am

At this year's Brickvention I once again had the pleasure to team up with the very talented Mike Pianta (scruffulous) for a town/train diorama. Like last year's Ararat we went for a rural Australian town theme, and again set it in 1972 to maximise our building fun. This time we chose Elmore for its distinctive train station.




You can find many more pictures by some wonderful photographers at the convention in the layout's flickr group.

While we'd learnt a lot from the previous year this one presented new challenges. Not least for me how to bring large buildings in my aeroplane luggage. And for Mike how to assemble large base segments without ever getting a chance to see them all together. Luckily we were able to overcome the challenges and I'm very happy with how it turned out. Apparently the TLG judges were too as we were honoured to be awarded Best in Show.

I was there at Brickvention and took many photos but having seen these couple I must confess that my skills in camera work certainly do not compare or show how good this diorama truly shows legohappy

Congratulations on your award and fingers crossed we will cross paths again sooner rather than later !!!

Tim I'd just like to say the layout (s) you and Mike have made are fantastic, they really look authentically Australian -especially the trees. legosunglasses
