u working ur way up to 1/24 scale?....
Kinda. I first tried HO thinking I'd enjoy it and it would allow me to build large, complex dioramas in a relatively small space. While I did enjoy that diorama I decided HO wasn't all that satisfying as it's difficult to produce fine details and they often end up looking rather crude, (at least when I do them!) After seeing some of the amazing work some model railroaders do in O scale I've decided to give that a try. I decided to start with something a little simpler than the "Barn Find" diorama, just one vehicle in this one and not even a complete building. There is one huge drawback to O scale however, at least for model car builders, there are very few good plastic model kits in 1/48 scale of cars and trucks. O scale has been a very popular scale for a long time and even moreso lately with the surge in On30 trains produced by Bachmann so it's real suprising there is so little available.
I do plan on going up to 1/24 scale after this diorama is finished largely because of the dearth of automotive subjects in O scale. However the 1/24 diorama I am planning on will probably end up being a multi-year project at the rate I build, so there's a good chance I'll still do small and simple O scale dioramas on occasion like this one.
