I'm looking for some Star Trek Dios that people have done, I don't really see much of them around.
I'm thinking of doing my own since I've got a few kits that would look great in the right diorama. I think the most interesting idea sofar is a crashed saucer dio from 'Generations' If I was going to make that into a project I can use the top section of the Enterprise D saucer (you wouldn't see the bottom) from the 1/2500 three ship set. Although I've been modeling for a while now and I know my way around every thing I've never really attempted a Dio, so and WIP's or tips etc would be great.
I Have Seen Some Before, But Dont Remember Where, It Was Basically A Crew Salvaging Some Wreckage, Think It Was Near 1/35 Scale.
I Have A Couple In Mind I Want To Do, In 1/72 Scale, Working On Runabout Cockpit And Interior, To Be Viewed With Open Hatches,
But Would Also Like To Do Some Bridges, Scale To Be Determined.
3/4 scale!?! So that explains it. The dimensions of the 1/35 scale Voyager probe kit didn't seem to add up vs. 1/35 scale figures. Well, that shoots that idea all to hell. I couldn't sculpt my way out of a pile of mashed potatoes so that would be hopeless. Maybe I can find a model Voyager van and do it in 1/25 scale.... Now that would be funny.
On Page 45 of the December, 2008 issue of Fine Scale Modeler, there's a BEAUTIFUL "Asteroid Docking Bay" diorama using a Polar Lights Enterprise (as the DEFIANT) and parts of an Alpha Moonbase kit used for detailing. It's really one of the nicest Trek ship dioramas I've ever seen. It's the terrific work of a guy named Mike Walston from Bradenton, Florida.
