Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

European Industrial Zone - By Simone Pallini

Italian modelmaker Simone Pallini sent us pictures of his diorama called "Industrial Zone." In this photo we see a metal building housing a carpentry factory totally scratchbuilt (paper,wood and plastic), a bridge crane (Lima) painted and weathered which is loading a MAN truck (HERPA) for an oversize load, a very large piece of a turbine. There is also an IVECO 440 E52 EUROSTAR (RIETZE) silver and blue, a MAN TGA (HERPA) with a refrigerated trailer, and three automobiles. Under the bridge crane there is a Mercedes 2044 (HERPA) parked. The road lamps and the wire-net fencing are scratchbuilt. A completely different view of this diorama can be seen in Photo Gallery 152.
