Creative Model Idea - Scratchbuilding


I thought this was clever. You never know what a modeler will use to make something.

If you look close, these are 3 Tamiya paint bottle caps glued together. You don't notice it at first because they're weathered so well. With the top one turned upside down, it provides a shallow bottom to put trash in, and cover up the fact that the drum is not hollow all the way through.

So save those paint caps!


Model 1/25 Scale Garage Shop Diorama

I've been poking around with this garage diorama idea. It's almost done, but if you want to check it out, CLICK HERE. I've got some images up that I took along they way, and some text talking about it. It might interest you if you build cars and trucks.

Once I am done I'll post some better shots of it. Not everythng inside is glued down yet, and I have a few more ideas in my head, but eventually it should be done (are dioramas ever really done?). I had a blast building it, and it was one of those things that just happened on it's own. 80% of it was built in 2 days on a weekend. The rest I just tinkered on as I added more details.

It's part garage, shop, and old gas station.

Diorama Models

Just about every modeler has made a diorama of one kind of another. Usually incorporating their favorite model subject.

Diorama Dreams is a company that specializes in dioramas. Building large scratch built models and scenes, often in 1:6 scales, you are drawn into the action and display. The models vary, from helicopters, science fiction, figures, to military vehicles.

Many of their scenes use figures, in what appear to be modified GI Joe bodies. An interesting touch.

Check the site out and see what you think. There are a lot of ideas, especially if you into large scale projects.
