You've seen the other entries in minicup64 and bob8748's threads, so here was my entry in Swifty's October custom event. The theme...RALLY!

I had never done anything in that direction and had a great time building this one. I went with the excellent Hot Wheels Ford Focus Rally casting and a new off road diorama.

I choose a fantasy, privateer effort by legendary Ford pilot Dorsey Schrader so I did not have worry about capturing real 1:1 details. But the diorama replicates a real leg of the Sardinia based WRC Rally Of Italy.

I am sorry for all the photos, but I wanted to share even more! This was just so much fun to build. I choose to use a simply wire to hold the car so I could use the cases for other subjects. I know you've already seen the diorama in action with other my Matchbox truck. I should have made wiper sweeps on the windows, but I just now thought of that while posting these photos!

Thanks so much for the look, I hope you like the pics. I've been giddy waiting to share with my brothers!

Ward, I've been wanting to ask you this for a while. Would you mind putting together a how to on these dioramas you do? I've really been wanting to make some of these for my self. How do you do the dirt, the grass, and the roads?

Sure, I would not mind at all....it's really simple so it would be pretty easy to show it in progress. I will photo the next one I build and post it here. Good idea, thanks for asking.

I really like the shot of it leaving the ground. The one with the girls on the rocks is good too. You got em sized in well. Are the wheels co-molds?

Ward! That is fantastic!!! :thumbsup:
I'm liking the next to last pic the best. Great action shot! I'm a big fan of all of your work but especially your dio and photography skills. I'm looking forward to some how-to's as well! Its amazing what you can put together in a four week build! You raised the bar a little, in a good way! You have me trying harder.
