Enjoy these custom designed and built dioramas and Z scale scenes.
Indian Summer. Part 1
The Indian Summer diorama, a blaze of colors! This is most likely one of the best work from my friend John. The diorama has some great hot spots like the tunnel, the railroad crossing, the boxcar...
Indian Summer. Part 2
Playing with the daytime and how the colors of the trees appear with different sunlight was the goal on the pictures above. As you can see you can get almost every color from dark red to orange, yellow and...
Let It Snow. Part 1
As you know I'm a Swiss guy and we are famous for our mountains and snow. It was obvious that I beg John to make a snow diorama for me. Nothing comes close when you see a colorful mixed freight train...

Snake River, Part 1
After the release of the beautiful brass bridge from fellow Z scaler Reynard at Micronart.com, the Snake River diorama was a must! This breathtaking diorama has everything... rocks, bridge, water and trees..
Snake River, Part 2
The diorama also has a small wooden bridge in front where I can place some cars or bikes from Álvaro to give the scene a special touch. I really love the art deco bridge abutments that..
