The AMT kit of the Ferrari 250 SWB stinks!  So I thought putting it in a diorama would be appropriate.  The tree stump is from a bush found outside, same with the grass.  The tarp is diluted white glue soaked Kleenex.  This was the first diorama I built as an adult.

Nice diorama Kurt B)

Wayne Carinni would "wet himself" if he stumbled on this in full scale!:rolleyes:

That is a really cool diorama and definitely a great way to display that kit. There are great Ferrari 250 kits available now so that AMT kit can be retired (or put out to pasture).

And this one is still my favorite of Kurt's dioramas. Even better when seen in person, it just reeks of 'dry, neglected dusty vehicle.'

Thank you everyone.  Yes, inaccurate kits are great for this theme.  I have an AMT Mercedes Gullwing that I want to use for a diorama.

Perfect way to display a bad kit as others have said, and I like the way you have captured the scene in a very small area of diorama. Kurt the diorama Master !

That would be a special occasion indeed. However the odds of finding a 250 in the corner of a yard are pretty high. So you did an excellent job of potraying the impossible.
