American road – diorama in H0 scale

Important information: in 2023 I created a new version of this diorama – below original post you will find also a few images of 'remastered' model. 

I'm not sure why, but it's enough to give me these 2 words and I have ready image in my mind. Probably it's beacuse of the movies – many of them were shot in the USA – and theme of road trip is definetely not rare. From my perspective, it is classic long journey throught empty Texas roads. I know that maybe there are some inaccuracies in this vision in comparison to reality, but it sounds really nice.

So, this idea came into life – I decided to create a small imitation of road in the middle of nowhere. To make it a little bit more interesting, I put there a car wreck (american type obviously).

Due to relatively small size, you can easily place it on your shelf (or hang on the wall as shadow box).

⦁ scale: approximately 1:87 (H0)
⦁ dimensions: 20 cm by 15 cm (height 4.5 cm); weight: 0.2 kg;
⦁ comes with gold-wood styled frame.

Important notice: this is not a toy.

As I mentioned before, in 2023 I built new diorama. In terms of general concept and dimensions nothing really has changed, but there are a few improvements.
