I took a 100% case and added the checkered floor and drew the brick wall patterns to enhance this case... I added the GL shop tool set along with a few handcrafted pieces to come up with this cool little dust free diorama... Now I need to find some pics, ads, and a calander with some naked girls to hang on the walls !!!

Great Dio, But just one thing is wrong with it.

Make your checkered floor patterns smaller to fit the Dio Scale as each
square is the size of the Cars hood. Cut down the contact paper to make
the squares 1/2 inch so they will flow with the rest of the Dio scale. Just
my opinion of course as I did the same with my Dio floors. I have a few
floors made up to slide in at any given moment to change up the Dio. I made
one floor checkered white/black & one red/black & green/black... I went
over board on mine as I made up light switches , pix on the walls , warning
signs , wall phone , open sign in the window , window , roll up door , auto
maker plate signs etc..

Great job and keep up the great work :thumbsup:

3/16 of a inch is 1ft in 1/64th scale so to simulate a 1ft standard tile they need to be 3/16 square.

As you can see from the chart below a 1/2 sqaure is still a 32 inch tile -- Still way to big

Here is a Chart For Everyone to use!!



By the way the Dio IS KICK AZZ!!!!!!

Nice use of the case! I have saved a bunch of those with plans to do the same thing. I never seem to get around to it. I've been meaning to learn to use photoshop better so that I can make some cool backgrounds and floors.

Nice job!
