This diorama was to make as simple a base as possible, and attempt to show motion. The pavement is just a piece of Corian (plastic kitchen/bath countertop), which is the perfect grain and color, sandblasted texture for rolled out pattern. Tire marks are pastel chalk. I made the master, and made resin copies of the cones, most are solid, a few are hollow, and for the killed cone I bent it soon after casting. The timer equipment is really simple, I could have super detailed something better. The VW Golf II GTi is the Revell kit, the alleged "Tuner series", which has horrible wheels and hideous aero parts. I used Integra wheels. I modified the bumpers to be European looking, the grill has wire mesh, added a moon roof, Evo 5 mirrors, resin Vehicross gas cap, Euro tuner green taillights, real springs on the suspension (which nobody can see), removed door handles (which are really cheap units). Painted with Boyds turquoise, with a nail 'polish' green pearl over it, and clear. The interior back seat was removed, Scale Motorsport decal on seats, figure is modified race driver. Built in 2003. I owned a '91 Jetta GLi, did some autocross, so I *had to* do the lifted rear wheel.
