More dioramas

As unfocused as ever, I'm presently playing with a couple of dioramas. Very slowly as it happens what with one thing and another.

The first is a scene based on Hale Station which has a wonderful canopy.  Obviously that doesn't appear in the picture.  I'm still figuring out how to do it.  If there are no more posts on this, I didn't manage to figure it.

The second is of a row of seaside cottages with rough stone tile roofs.  That's an interesting challenge - styrene sheet and scribed DAS - and I'm struggling to get the colour right at the moment.  I can never seem to anticipate darkening colour as the acrylic paint dries.  The scribing also needed to be finer as the gaps between tiles appear too large.  I may lose interest in this one.
