This is a new diorama that I built for photographing models.  The first diorama that I built was nothing more than foam core with brown paper glued to it and lines applied to look like brick.  After that wore out I built one mae from 3/4 inch wood with brick Plastruct for the walls and tile for the floors.  It contained large amounts of boring and was about as convincing as me entering a beauty pageant.

I've spent years with people telling me to clean, clean, clean.  While I was building this all I heard was dirty, dirty, dirty.  If it gets any worse it will get condemned.

I have a shelf for it in my model room that sets it at eye height when sitting.  This is perfect for placing the camera on the tripod to take photos.

Well done, I especially like the water damage and stains on the walls.
