thnx guys and @ tom > :D  :P  hahahaha
 
well i did some rough work , the thing is the wood isnt flat everywhere and well ... its a bit like covering up the ugly outside the best i can ...
so i started with the brick stuff on the outside but thats not wide ebough to cover the walls from top to bottom and overlapping did not work ,, so i desided to take some scavengend old window blinds and use those as pannels for the top ..
again just working with what i got and trying to make it look decent enough for the show ....
 
now the wood isnt straight anough to make real crisp corners .. but i think with some weathering that will turn out good

so bad you say on the outside it doesn't look in my view. I think, it is the right touch with the pannels on top.

Richard this is one bad azz dio. The weathering is great, all the paint work is kick but.
The hand made tools are awesome, just one incredible build.
Thank for showing us.

Had I not watched this thing come together, I'd swear a lot of the details were real.

I have gone through this entire thread, and you my friend give those of us (especially myself) who haven't had the chance, money or don't think they can build a diorama, the hope that they will be able to do it. Honestly the only reason I haven't even tried yet is because I move so much right now. I think once I have my own house I will be able to build one of these. Good job!!!

thnx guys and @ clay , trust me you can build a whole diorama for like very little money .. in fact i think its doable for the same ammount a decent car kit costs ..
for me the fun is also trying to use all sorts of old stuff ..

sure would i go to the store and buy a whole lot of evergreen styrene it would be easyer to build stuff .. but like you saiy cost is also a factor :)

and for me this was my first real diorama , i have done a 1/18 thing before this but this was the first real dio i did ..so i was not real experienced myself .. hope my next one will be a step up again :)

well i went to the fair and it was awsome , saw a lot of people from the dutch forum always nice to see a face behind the person online ..

and mannnn what a reactions i got on my garage and hotrods .. really bizarre ..

i kept talking to people :) and got only great reactions and everybody who saw my table wanted to ask or talk :)
never expected so much ..... :)

most of the forum who where there with their models all said whow its so tiny in real life and those details are tiny..
and that it looked even better irl then on pictures , i felt the same zbout a lot of models i saw online and now irl

first time ever to a model event but it was cool

i took a black sheet and that worked great the black surface was very cool when everything was placed on it
