Thanks !

 

During the next week or so I'll be building small items to put into the diorama.  Boxes, tools, junk, etc.

Thanks !!

 

Hey a fishing pole is a great idea !!

 

 

I made one a few years ago.  Now I'll have to dig through some boxes and find it !   ( It might take me longer to find it than to build another one..  LOL )

Thanks !

 

I use plastic, I have lots of different Evergreen shapes and sizes.

 

I use wood, I found a bunch of model railroad lumber at a junk store.

 

I use paper.  Lately I have found paper and cardboard very useful.  Like breakfast cereal boxes.  It is easy to work with, can be bent around curves and glues and paints up great.

Geez, Jim, this is PURE EYECANDY.  Loving it.  I think this is going to come together beautiful and with the right lighting you'll be able to create lots of interesting pictures with the background.  Great way to show off new builds.

Thanks Cranks..........

 

You gave me an urge Virg..........

 

Background ?!  I never thought of that.  This was going to be a diorama with everything glued in place. 

But if I don't glue down the car and a few other items on the floor, I guess I could use it for a background for other cars.  

 

Hummmmmm.   Food for thought.
