I also did some work on the dioramas, I decided to through Johns Models kits in the waste, really they have been a disappointment it was just the modern image they covered appealed for the last part of the diorama I'm on now, the likes of a Premier Inn and shopping centres. I'll stick with Kingsway, SMS and Metcalfe. If I haven't got the right buildings I'll make them from scratch like my bus station.
I got some of the Woodland Scenery figures today, they are American but if you get the right ones they are quite nice but very much HO not OO but then people come from 4 ft to 6 ft in real life and at least they tend to include all ethnicities which like it or not is the reality. I'll try and get some pictures on soon.
