Diorama Baseboards

Diorama or model railway baseboards are the foundation upon which your entire railway vignette is built. Think of the baseboard as the stage that contains foreground and background elements and which provides context for your model railway. How you dress that stage is up to you.
 

The Importance of the Diorama Baseboard

 
The job of the diorama baseboard is to provide a solid foundation upon which you can construct your project or display mount. But that’s not all. The diorama or model railways baseboard provides:
 

  • A sense of scale and proportion: The baseboard will help you calculate the right proportion for your scene or display.
  • A foundation for your visual presentation: The baseboard does not have to disappear completely beneath your scene. It can be incorporated by painting or decorating it as need dictates.
  • Context: Being able to focus on the shape and size of the baseboard makes it easier for you to envision your scene and to make creative decisions.
  • Portability: Our baseboards are sturdily built and will stand the test of time. You can transport them with confidence.

 
Our model railway baseboards and diorama baseboards help ensure the success of your vignette, display or railway landscape by providing a rock-solid foundation.

Answer...Unfortunately, we do not sell different sized sieve heads for the Micro Applicator. Only the Pro Grand Applicator comes with three different sized sieve heads.

Here are some key things for you to check when applying static grass using our applicator:

  • Use a powerful brand-new battery (PP3 9V battery).
  • Do not fill the hopper with too much grass, as the grass needs to have space to move.
  • Only apply a smear of basing glue on the required area and make sure to apply the basing grass before it dries. Room temperature can affect this.
  • Do not apply too much basing grass to the area. If you cover the basing glue with too much grass it will not stand but go flat.
  • Once you have applied the basing grass and cannot see the basing glue anymore, add some layering spray before applying the layering grass.
  • Make sure the crocodile clip is near the applicator's head when applying the grass. You do not need to put a nail or screw into your model.
  • Here is a video showing how to use the applicator: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-E_ElExUts&feature=youtu.be

Unfortunately, we do not have any stockists in Europe or North America. All our products are sold online and shipped from the UK.

We would recommend using our D-Baller which has been specifically designed to get rid of static grass balls. Here is a video showing how to use this useful tool: https://restore.wwscenics.com/product/modelling-with-martyn-2/
