Build & Animate an ULTRA-REALISTIC Diorama ā€“ Realistic Scenery Vol.16


(Comments posted here are more likely to get a response šŸ˜‰)


If youā€™ve ever wanted to build a realistic diorama and actually have vehicles and bicycle riders moving along the road then this video is a must see!

In this video Iā€™ll show you every step I took to create this fantastic diorama, including the building, working road with vehicles and bike riders and all the tiny details that fill the scene. Itā€™s all there.

The Magnorail is the main feature of this diorama and this particular starter kit was sent to me from Clyde at Magnorail Oz.

Using the Faller car system is not always the easiest way to get era specific cars running as the size of the car is limited to what battery and motor will fit, the magnorail can work with any vehicle from O scale down to N and possibly Z scale.

The main limitation is vehicles that are too big as weight can be an issue if there are any inclines for big vehicles larger than O scale.

Some of the details I use have their own dedicated tutorials and I only briefly describe the process in this video, for a more detailed description you can find the additional YouTube tutorials here:

Extra Files:

Additional content that will help you recreate and follow along with the build, some of the 3DĀ printer files are still experimental and may require some tinkering in order to get them to print successfully. Also, nearly all of the 3DĀ printer files are designed for resin 3DĀ printers, trying to print them using a filament 3DĀ printer may not be possible!

But in any case, IĀ hope you enjoy the extra content.
