The Coal Merchant
Builder: Finn Watkins
My name is Finn and I am 14 years old. I love modelling and being inspired by the layouts and ideas in BRM magazine. I liked the idea of building a scene in a small-space, but which hopefully grabs peoples attention.
I decided to make a diorama of a Great Western branch-line coaling stop. I used an MDF board as the base. I made the weighbridge from a kit and the same with the coal bunker. I do enjoy building kits, but have not made anything from scratch yet as I do not feel my skills are developed enough yet. The lorry is out of era, but I still think it sits well in the scene.
