Model farming diary - April 2009


Recommended Posts

Well the shop expansion is still underway. I don't think we will see too many new pieces of equipment this spring. I do forsee some new iron arriving later this summer though  ;):) For the spring there is a New Holland bidirectional showing up in a few weeks.  8) Here are a few tillage shots, unfortunately we were not able to keep going because of a snow storm  ::)




Here is a shot of the farms shop expansion. There has been some progress made since but I have been pretty busy, I am hoping to get this finished over the summer.

Luke this is one of the most realistic dioramas I've seen, excellent photographs too!

1. Your lighting is great, is the set up in a greenhouse/ conservatory or something?

2. How did you create your ground; mixed static grass for the meadow, fish tank stones for the mud?)

Thank you CMB  ;):)

1) I just wait until there is a really nice day out, then I take a wheel barrel with some wood on top then lay down a small sheet of Styrofoam. Then I just add what ever base I need to work with, usually grass or dirt. It is suppose to be a nice day out tomorrow so if i get out ill snap a few pictures  ;)

2) For the grass I use a mat I picked up from a local craft store. Over here in the States we have Michaels or AC Moore craft stores that typically carry it around the Christmas time. For the mud I just used dirt that I left in the sun to dry. I still need to run it through a screen to smooth it out a little bit more.

As and update the farms New Holland bi-directional is set to arrive next week. Just in time for hay season at the end of May.  8)
