Thanks Rob. Yes I will definately have it with me in Jacksonville. I'm hoping to be totally finished with it in time to take it to Atlanta in November.

This is so freakin' Beautiful, I love it. I'm a Mopar guy too. Hey one question when you did the tarp didn't it stick to your dart?

You wrap the body in plastic wrap before laying the material over the body to form the shape.

Well, the garage is mounted to the base finally. The 69 Dart under the tarp has been placed beside the garage. There is a canoe with paddles behind the garage and a little foliage has been added at the base of the garage walls to conceal any gaps between the building and the turf. I am currently playing with the ideas for vehicles for the scene. The cool part of dioramas is that you can change them out if you want a fresh look.

This is awesome. I have a project similar to this planned for after I graduate so I can spend more time on it. BTW, any more pics of the Dodge pick-up?

Wow even the window trim is bang on, must have been difficult to operate the mini mitre saw, lol. Nice job on all the manuals and mags. I like the Pro Stock Duster in garage.

There is an IPMS chapter that puts on a show every February called Jaxcon. It's usually the weekend of Valentine's Day. Check the IPMS website for details.

I finished some of the people and positioned them. The Dodge Dually will be the vehicle outside the garage. I built this one years ago and then rebuilt it about two years ago in hopes of one day adding it to a diorama.
The 67 Coronet is merely mocked up in the garage at the moment. When it's complete this is where it will be placed with the engine hanging from the engine hoist, waiting to be installed.
I also added a sign down by the water letting folks know what they could or could not do on the property.

Well done. The waterfowl and water are especially well-produced.

Great diorama.
