I may have posted this one before, but I just ran a bunch of cars through some dioramas to get better setting photos for them, so I'm posting it as one might have seen it in its time.

This young lady seems to be really proud of her 1968 Chevy Impala 2 door hardtop.

 

This is a great starter diorama for the novice.  Some of you may feel intimidated by the dioramas that you see, and think that you could never build one.  Nothing could be farther from the truth.  This one consist of some ground cover purchased at the model railroad section of a hobby shop, a model car, a figure, and a calendar photo for a backdrop.   Dilute water based glue with water and spay onto the base, then sprinkle your ground cover on to suit you.   After the ground cover dries I like to give it another watered glue overcoat to settle it.  Set your favorite calendar photo behind and add your props, and you have a diorama.

 

Give it a try.

Revell's 1977 Chevy van built as a shag van.  I had plans to do a lot more detailing on this kit, but chose to just stick to exterior enhancing.
