My Bio

Most of my deviations are diorama-style modelled railway scenes in TT scale (1:120), in which I combine real models with backgrounds provided by photos or screenshots of computer games. Many scenes are just temporary arrangements for a photo shot. For some of these scenes, I collaborated with other artists. There are also real dioramas and model railway layouts, however.


Interview on my 'virtual railway worlds' in the Online Magazine of TU Braunschweig (in German): magazin.tu-braunschweig.de/m-p…


Beside my modelling, I'm also a photographer of inspiring urban and industrial places.


Personal motto: 'People who show their weak points are the strong ones. The ones that try to exploit your weak points are the weakest.' (Lost Souls)

Due to the big interest in my retrofuturistic 'Leaving the city' art project, I opened a new album on this series. Right now, there are just four pictures. https://www.deviantart.com/jpachl/gallery/78879076/-leaving-the-city-art-project

After not having used it for more than six years, I decided to give my Instagram account another try. While DA and Flickr will remain my main platforms, you can now also meet me at https://www.instagram.com/jpachl/

Thanks for the fav!

I'm happy that you've found some interest on the web page links of some old French steam locomotive photographs. I can be a "big blab" about subject matters I'm into, but always with a bit of tried self constraint

Happy birthday!

Thanks a lot!

Your welcome good sir!

🎂Happy Birthday!

Thanks! However, it's still 4 hours ;-)
