    Hello there,
    now its time for one more Diorama.
    Incom T-47 Snowspeeder in action at the Battle of Hoth.
    For anybody who is interested in Star Wars models, there is a new version of the X-Wing fighter at the following link:
    XWing@2nd Edition ƒ_ƒEƒ“ƒ[ƒh‚Ì•Å

    Its much more detailed and also the Colors are better.

    So here are some pictures of my latest diorama:

    Super job! Your dioramas are very inspirational. Keep up the good work.

    On a side note, I am using a mac, and don't seem to have a way to open those .pdo files so I can build the new x-wing, and several more of the Star Wars models available. Any chance one of you wonderful folks with a Windows machine could save those files as PDFs and make them available to the rest of us?

    Not sure if this breaks any rules, but it sure would be nice to build those models.

    Thanks

    It is made of gypsum. I used a compound of tissue and liquid gypsum for the base. After hardening, I coated the surface with gypsum. At last I paint it with white wall paint. You need the compound to make the whole thing stable.

    Another fine effort! I love your little diorama display boxes, I know I've mentioned that before.... One day you're going to have to show us some pictures with all of them together... how many have you made so far?

    Including the last one, eight. However, the number of diorams is growing continuously. There is just one problem, one day my rooms will be too small for all those dioramas :mrgreen:.


    If you want to see more of my dioramas, look at this link: WEB.DE Foto-Alben

    To clarklfarris : I downloaded it from this Site:

    SWMiniatures » Blog Archive » T.C. Fire Snowspeeder v.1

    For downloading you have to register on that site.

    I love seeing these old threads bounce back to the top! I was just thinking about this model the other day! I love the fact that we keep attracting new members too. There are so many new people popping up with three or four posts. ! It warms my heart!:thumb:
