Ice cream stand diorama

17 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi, all. I made this ice cream stand patterned after a real one nearby that will soon be demolished to make way for yet another convenience store. It was a pretty simple build - foam board walls with coffee stirrers for siding and some brick paper in front. Balsa roof with aluminum foil to simulate metal roofing. Signs and ice cream cone on top came from online. The base is painted plywood. Fence is paper glued to balsa.

Carl, these figures are G scale model train figures from eBay. I got 20 of them for $17 a couple years ago. They were prepainted, but I redid some of them because they were crummy.

I love how you manage to angle and set your depth-of-field so that everything actually looks like real people/cars/buildings.

Very nice job on this, Sam.
