But just a small one I made to give to a friend. It was made a short time back but seemed to keep going through changes.

No background or anything. I'm starting in baby steps. I have two more I need to finish up and get mailed out. But really wanting to learn a lot about doing this. It is a lot of fun. Its like a next step in collecting.

Great work! Nice effect. Take the shine off all those tires and you've got a real winner there! Congrats!

Thanks for the replies. The Hudson in the back and the tractor also should have been mailed to their new owners 3 weeks ago, I'm slow. Kind of late to sand the tires, I glued them in place. I just added some dead flat to see if that will remove the shine. I'm not adding the details to the ones I'm sending out for fear they wont survive shipping. I added more dull coat to the stones as well. This one doesnt have to be mailed. Just get my friend to not forget to take it home with him.

Your diorama looks great. Custom dioramas are allot of fun to create. I have a blast making molds and casting some of my own figures, dioramas, and custom parts in resin, and pewter. Its always fun to expand your knowledge in model building and customization, thats what makes our hobby fun and entertaining.
I started out casting because I needed a few missing parts for kits that were pretty much impossible to replace, so I sculpted my own replacement parts, made molds from them and cast them in the resin or pewter depending what I needed them for.

Keep up the great work.:thumbsup:
