My First Dio

Recommended Posts

I finally got around to building a rudimentary diorama... Not much by way of equipment on the inside, but I made a tile floor and built the building out of scrap pieces of cabinet wood I had around.... I added some lighting, as well... I've got a few more things I'd like to add, but this is the gist of it all.... I, definitely, will add some figures here and there, soon....Thanks for looking....

wow, very nice dio! What scale is it? And where does the red widebody Hellcat came from?

Thanks, Buddy... The dio is all 1/24 scale, and the Hellcat is a Motormax issue... Got them at Walmart in 2019... They can still be had at diecastmodelswholesale.com

That Ram Club Cab, did you stretch the truck to a Club Cab? Or were you able to buy it somewhere? If you stretched it, great job. It looks like you bought it somewhere.

It's a repainted die cast... There are way more 1/24 scale offerings in modern cars and trucks than in plastic... It's true 1/24 scale, too... It was the Muhammed Ali Action/Brookfield Collectors Guild Nascar show truck model.... Bill Elliot.... Way more for your money... Got tired of base model snappers with no mirrors that cost way more than they're worth... Trust me... Repainting this thing was WAY harder than building up one of those 1/25 scale AMT Dodge models... And looks so much better...
