  5. 1stPix Diecast Dioramas: Making of a New Street Layout

  6. What can in use for a small diorama box?

    Hi, I make tiny houses which need a setting in which to be displayed. The houses are 15cm high x 10cm width. The ideal size for them to live in is about the size of a sardine can.

    I ended up using a 1/32 scale M16 truck and 1/35 scale hedgehogs. It was my first time putting together the hedgehogs since they required cement. I know they look like they were built by the lowest government contract bidder lol
