(JohnReid) #1

Hi guys ! I am presently doing a 1/24 scale storyboard diorama based upon this movie.It is a fantasy piece using lots of artistic license,and is my version of an old west movie set theme park.The main focus will be the opening scene and Jill’s arrival at Flagstone.Hope you like it. Cheers! John. :slight_smile:

I’d like to see how it turns out when the camera goes above the station and you see the town, that and Fonda’s entrance are my favourite scenes.

Looking good John.

Are you going to make a carriage for Mr Choo Choo?

Terrific so far.

That’s pretty cool! Reminds me of all the model train layouts you see at the model train shows. I always marvel at the work people do as I don’t think I would have the skill or patience. Will look forward to more pictures :slight_smile:
