Here's a small diorama I finished about 6 months ago, building bases and dioramas is new to me, this is only the second one I've done but I learnt heaps along the way and enjoyed it heaps!
It's the Revell Mustang, the base, tarp, fence etc is all scratch built, I've added barbed wire to the fence since the pics were taken to finish it off a bit.

Cheers Rob

I like it! Your layout reminds me of my first dio attempt (http://www.modelcars...showtopic=56449) :rolleyes: . The weathering is far better though. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for all the positive comments guys, it was a learning experience building it. I've got to learn how to use an airbrush than hopefully my weathering will improve, I currently dry brush and ink wash them.

Very nice! Reminds me of this one I did years back, which Gregg was kind enough to put in the magazine (my first and, so far, only).

Now that is cool. Really? Just your second one? Everything looks great and especially love the tarp and the old globe sign. Nicely done. What's next?
