I really like how your hangar diorama is turning out.
Thanks for the likes and for the comments. This diorama is almost coming to an end after a long enduring process from everyone involved. There are a few details but the viper is back in the front lead position and the diorama is looking real neat. The new mechanics tool chest will be uploaded soon for your enjoyment. The photos are almost self explanatory so I did not add any comments to the photos. The railings is made from a long wood dowel the thick size of a tooth pick, and later painted black. I was planning on making a few more figures to place on the walkway, looking down on the maintenance bay but I need to move on to other items in my build in-box. There is a pin up of Grace (Boomer) Parks on the desk and I was considering making a toaster on the desk as a pun for the Cylons. I may still do it. If you look closely, there are a few pre-flight inspection "remove before flight" tags on the viper. The tool chest, has open drawers as an option. While not in the episodes, I made a wall plaque of the PRIMUS coat of arms for the back of the bay. These photos are a bit busy and full of small details. Enjoy and see you all soon with the final product.It's a treat!
I know who Drexler is, but I am not too sure about Stringer. Thank you for placing me in Drexler's category, He has done many fine modeling works in the Sci-Fi community.Lee Stringer & Doug Drexler must see this!
Of all my grandkids, I have only one who likes to build things with his hands, and he is into HALO and Assassins Creed, but he does like my work.Awesome. Really. I hope you have a secure spot because those little fingers rumbling around your home are going to find those models someday!!
Which attack portion of the movie, the hangar or the attack?FRACK-tastic!!!!!
Can't wait to see you tackle a Star Wars : New Hope rebel "attack" diorama!
Thanks for looking in, sometimes I do get carried away with my tunnel vision and can't stop but the end is coming soon, and I need to finish a couple of threads and start something new.You are really going to town on this one!
The details are OUT(FRAKKING)STANDING!!!
Lee has done MANY of the CG effects on the New BSG and "translated" LOTS of TOS ships into CG versions, including the Rising Star. You have to see his flickr gallery. The pictures helped me a lot in making the modules for my TNS 1:32 hangar bay:
(BTW, I still need some test builders for that! )
He also worked on Firefly / Serenity.
Thank you so much for the fuel drums!!!
They were made especially for this build, but are free to the community to enjoy in making their maintenance bay. The items can also be used to enhance any mechanic shop diorama with the removal of the BSG logos or leave them on as added spice.Incredible. There's so many model kits in there!!
Thanks, I had problems with the dome and it should have been a bit lower or made it into a one piece instead of petals. I am glad that you have enjoyed it. Now here is the final item in the diorama, the mechanics tool chest which is now in the resources.The fuel tanks look GREAT!!!
