First of all, please fill out the above poll. I'm beginning to think EB is not the place for diecast; it is a Lego Emergency site after all, but if there's a lot of interest I can keep posting. Otherwise, I can be found on www.diecastgarage.org under the alias of DieCastDodges.

I've been working on a couple of simple scenes that are designed purely for photography purposes, and they also give me some experience with diorama making before I start on the two large ones I have planned. This one is the first, and is very simple: wire screen fence with styrene posts and a rather fake and unrealistic looking tree (I should probably add leaves and stuff to it I guess), placed on a small piece of grass mat glued to some foam core. When properly aligned with 1:1 landscape, it works pretty well. I'm working on a larger parking lot one, as well as something similar to this one, but wider, and I plan on including some fallen logs and a gravel or dirt road. I also added some watermarks for the first time, what do you think? Can the IG photo-stealing experts tell me if these will work? 🤪

At the end of the fence, behind the tree, I twisted the screen up as though at some time a log might have fallen across it. Also because I didn't feel like gluing the screen to the last few posts 😂It's amazingly hard to get the glue to set the screen for some reason!

Here are some photos I took of a couple custom Chevys

This one is the worst of the bunch. Instead of making the colors pop, it ended up too dark and also washed out at the same time, not to mention bringing out all the imperfections.

As always, thank you for looking and tell me what you think!

Great scene. I'm thinking of doing a diorama of this gas station that is by where we are building a vacation house. This would make a great diorama

My planned gas station is inspired by a small local one near me too. Thank you Rylie!
