Graham, I like your positioning of the diorama for the photo shoot which gives the appearance of a real-world setting, with the outside houses in background. Extremely well done, congratulations!

Graham, do you have plans for the station per chance?

Added by Stevie Murray on 20 December 2009.

I don’t have any plans for the fire station, as with my other fire station models they are born out of my imagination, all the details for the construction are worked out in my mind before I start.

Added by Graham Willey on 21 December 2009.
Your model fire stations look so realistic. Well done. Any chance you might include some rear shots so we can see it from the station yard?

Added by Paul James on 30 December 2009.
Hi Paul, none of the fire stations have a station yard. They were only built to display my fire engine models at model shows around the country. If I’d added a station yard they would have been to large to transport about.

Graham, I believe Paul is referring to the rear of the station and engine room, not the actual back yard,,,, Regards from Perth Western Australia

Hi Pavel,

Not much to see at the back of the stations; only the sheet plastic that I build them from, as the stations butt up-to a back scene which forms part of the display case that I use when displaying the models at shows.

Thanks Graham, (and Pavel) they are still superb models and I think they really set your excellent scratch-built appliances off beautifully.

Nice work, wish I had the knowledge and the time... well done.
