First dio with my daughter
Posted by heroncustom on Sunday, February 3, 2013 1:38 PM
Well my daughters 4 1/2 now and has built three snapkits with me and loves " building cars with my daddy" so i decided to take us both a step further.
Iv always wanted to try building a diorama mainly as a photo backdrop for my 1/25 cars i model but lack the knowledge and skill to bother. every sunday its daddy daughter daybas mum works 9-5 sundays and we always get bored with the things we do in a day so i started researching dios and how tos and decided we would try a two teir dio for photoing one or two cars. So after a few hours this morning heres what weve got thus far

The begings of our two teired dio


After newspaper rocks were made amd hot glued to the frame we used plaster clothe to simulate a cliff cut out.
We plan on doing a gaurd rail up top with an asphalt curve the bottom on yhe other hand ibhavent decided on road or an " off road" section for possible future trucks.


Let us know your thoughts and thanks for looking!!!!
