Chornobyl Speed Shop diorama


Recommended Posts

Just finished up my Chornobyl Speed Shop diorama, which takes place in an alternative universe's Ukraine where robot labor was a thing during the Cold War.

The car kits are a Toko Models GAZ-AA truck in 1:35, while the land speed racer is based on an old rubber band powered Hawk kit, which I narrowed, built a full bellypan and cockpit for, and stuffed full with a Tatra V12 tank engine.

Figures are from Imaquinaria, Industria Mechanika, and Blacksmith Miniatures.

The robot is STAN, from Futuristic Models.

The base was plaster of paris that I carved the lines into after it had set up, painted, and then added weeds and fencing.

Very different and well done.

Did you perhaps mean Chernobyl, rather than Chornobyl?

Ah, but Chernobyl, as we know it from the days of the meltdown, is the Russian spelling. Chornobyl is the original, (and once again proper, since the (re)establishment of Ukraine as a country) spelling.
