KMRC Skrifa - Scenecraft shows you how -  Using Woodland Scenics to create a diorama


Woodland Scenics Diorama

With many people turning to modelling during these unusual times, look no further than the Woodland Scenics range to provide hours of scenic modelling fun! Whether you are looking to detail and improve an existing layout or diorama, or start a brand new project from scratch, the Woodland Scenics range of model scenery products offer everything you need to build a layout, diorama, display or other project from base to landscape.

Woodland Scenics has put together this step by step guide to creating a diorama, as pictured above, to show how easy and enjoyable it is - with video tutorials for each stage of the process. Apart from the buildings featured, this entire diorama has been achieved by using only Woodland Scenics products.

If you would like to add a building, or two, then take a look at the OO gauge Bachmann Scenecraft range here, or the  N gauge Graham Farish Scenecraft range here.
