Dusty Dios

Hello Rick..... I use a one inch household paintbrush to ' sweep ' the roadways / streets of any dust that has accumulated, and a cosmetic blusher brush to clean dust off scale model cars. A compressed air duster is a bit too drastic and would cause bits of the buildings to fly off!

I have some large dios that are too large to fit into any of my five display cases. I have them on top of the cases covered with pieces of bed sheets to keep as much dust  as possible from accumulating. I also use a very soft bristle brush for dusting them off before displaying them in public.

All of the dioramas i have done for myself are stored in boxes between shows . I build mine so as to allow the base separate away from the building . This latest diorama , The Crossroads Coffee house is really going to need a separate storage room

I'm doing a shadowbox dio. With a plexigrass front cover, there will be no dust issues. Plus, it's wall mountable so shelf space is not an issue. PLUS, it's a finite amount of space so it's doesn't take on a life of it's own and continue to grow like some dio's I have seen over the years.
