It is a Tokyo Diorama Factory kit, with extra detailing added.

Thanks. What were your feelings on the Tokyo diorama kit? How do they compare to sankei and amagi modeling idea kits (if you have done any of those). I’ve been meaning to order a could of the Tokyo diorama kits to try out.

 

cheers,

They are more or less equal to the Sankei kits. Same level of quality and detail. I don't know the Amagi ones.

Do they use the same type of laserboard that has pigment all thru the board and heavy resin with little singing on the cut edges like the sankei?

 

thanks

It is all cardboard, just like the Sankei kit of the watermill I built.

Sorry I’ll be more specific with my questions;

 

Does the coloration of the cardboard go all the way thru the material or is it just on the outside faces?
 

Also any singing along the edges?

Hi Jeff,

 

Yes, the cardboard is coloured through, but the edges are effected by the burn marks of the laser. What do you mean with 'singing along the edges'?

Huib,

 

Thanks! Wow someone else has that sankei laserboard or a similar one. Most of the lasercut kits use the just co,red on the outside bits which ends up with the white (now burned dark brown) interiors showing on edges that you need to deal with. 
 

Yes the singing I was asking about was the edge burning (sorry should have just said burned). I still don’t know how sankei does their cutting with very little edge burning if any at times. I’ve always expected they use a a lot of resin in their laserboard as it’s really hard to cut with a knife. Also dialed in their laser just right I guess.

 

cheers,

Curse of having to proof read as part of my job.

 

The confusion may have been due to the missing e. 

 

Singe - singeing (lightly burnt)

 

Sing - singing (making music with voice)

 

Sorry to be that guy!!

Sorry Jeff, not having a go. As a number of members speak English as a second language, just trying to defuse the miscommunication, not highlight any errors. 

 

The word “singeing” is one of those words that really doesn’t look correct when you look at it.

... and added to the layout. Up next: creating the landscape around the rice paddies.

I just made a start with the landscaping. The rockfaces work pretty well, don't you think?

Rock faces look great @Huib You could look at adding some rockslide fencing and some crash barriers to add those extra Japanese details. Also low level power or communication lines often run along roads in rural areas for accessibility.

 

 

As there is a beautiful view of the tea fields behind your 7/11 you should add a 2 metre fence to stop people stopping and taking photos.

Progress is slow, but I am pretty happy with the results so far...
