I wanted to post my newest mini dio on the model board, as many of the tricks I used came from looking at your work!

The truck is not mounted so I may move various cars in and out of the diorama.

Thanks for the look.

Thanks so much, you know how I love your "larger then life" dios so that means a lot. Remember, these are small dios that are all based in a Hot Wheels 2 car 100% case. An example of the size I tend to work in...




I use them quite a bit, I think the key is blending your base into the photo. If I start out with an idea from the top and work to that end, it seems to flow a lot better. A couple of others using the same idea...

wow- those all look great... as usual. I never realized they were quite that small... all the more impressive. I usually don't like the photo background style- because, unlike yours, that's normally all it is... just a picture propped in front of a car. not that there's anything wrong with that at all either... just a personal preference I guess.

I can't believe you can get that much detail using such a small "set"- that's really amazing.

Thanks again, from you that really does mean something. Some of these have quite a bit of elevation happening in a small space. Here is a side shot of my dirt track dio...



In this shot you really can't see how much elevation change is built in...



But from the back, you can see how much movement it took to look "apart" of the back ground photo. I start with the pic and work backwards.

Brother, knock yourself out! That is as long as I can use your ideas as well! If you have any questions just ask, anything I know, you know!
