Hi. !

This diorama are in 1:24 scale (exact)
All you can see are scratchbuild.
The cobbles are small pieces of clay. Even some in the walkway. Others are made in wood.
The streetcar is a scratchbuild copying an Occre model.
At the start I was decide to finish the roofs with tiles, but at last, I build a small penthouse.







Thanks for watching
Regards

Xavier, it was a pleasant surprise to see your diorama since I have visited Lisbon and ridden the trams ("electricos" as they call them there). You have captured the spirit well. Above is one of the many pictures I took there.

It was also a special experience visiting the transportation museum in Lisbon and seeing the preserved trolley cars built by Brill in Philadelphia, my birthplace.

And about Brill... I'm working in a Brill Gas Powered Unit in 1:32 scale, hope I can finish soon...

Thanks for your comments.

Again, thanks for your kind words and take your time to visit this post.
This is another version from the same subject. It's smaller ...

Xavier Very nice diorama. Another touch that would really say Lisbon is to add the wonderful, colorful tiles you see on so many of the buildings. This would be time consuming but it would really set the locale.
