Hi,
today I want to show you one of my Diorama´s I built about two years ago.The cars I used are an Revell 1967 Charger,an AMT Chevy Nova and an AMT Mercury Cougar.The fence is made from Balsawood.The grass and other parts are taken from railroadmodelling.I made a oilcolor washing on the cars and used some pastelchalk.A little bit drybrushing and a lot of phantasie,lol.

Hi...Twist67...The Car's n Barns diorama is cool. It looks like a scene from Virginia. You did excelent weathering details with the diorama ''Old Dumper''....do you also build Military dioramas?......Barbo.

Hi,
Barbo I often take a look to the techniques they used on military models....or also on railroad models...you can try those things in larger scale,too.Sometimes it works and sometimes not......but it´s always woth a try :D

The military guys have some great ideas and methods that we can use in our dioramas. I am always checking out the Fine Scale mags etc. for ideas.
Twist, do you have the dio out to modify it or are you just getting around now to showing us pics of it. It looks fabulous.
