Diorama Ideas

Post by Jager » Tue May 07, 2019 8:46 pm

Every once in a while I come across a cool historic photo that make me think to myself “that would make a great diorama”. This thread is to share those picture.

I thought I’d start with this one.

Kind of expensive to model that ship in 1:43rd.

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

Great idea for a topic and great photo as well!

I like the idea of having the below in a diorama as part of a race paddock ambience from the 70's:

The van above is a Bedford CF. I think it's been modelled in the Opel Collection PW.

Some time ago I used the HW 1/43rd Ferraris to make a series of vignettes which I subsequently sold to collectors. They were easy to work on. I used DENIZEN white metal figures that I converted and painted in oils and acrylics. I've been thinking about doing them again. I'm glad this thread has been started.

Very nice John!

I recently built this diorama to replicate as close as possible this picture of the Healey SR Climax in the pits at Le Mans in 1970.
