Actually, in the interests of forum discussion - would you rather see Indy's Classroom or Fridge w/ Prairie Dog as my next diorama project ?

Figured you'd choose the classroom over the infamous fridge. In anticipation I already started building elements for it...

That temple of the forbidden eye paper model is amazing! I'd love to make it but I'll probably just f*** it up and waste a fortune in ink.

wouldn't you know it, I am making a diorama based of the design by tnswman , ( Hope you don’t mind tnswman ) Anyway I ran out of paint , so when I went to get some more, well, it was gone. I went to 5 stores and no one had the right color, I did how ever find a similar color, .And As I said it does have many of the same features as the one done by tnswman, but that design was awesome , and I had to have one. I did make some minor changes , such as little cross’s to mark graves... I will post some pics tomorrow

Cardboard Playsets

Like many of you guys, I had a bunch of the old stuff...old Star Wars stuff anyway...like the Tatooine playset with the pod that C3PO and R2D2 crash in...if you remember the plastic base was later duplicated for a Walker/Empire Strikes Back motif...the only difference was that it was white instead of tan (sand color), LOL! The new Cargo Truck comes with an awesome cardboard diorama that I use as a backdrop for the truck itself and all 17 of the figures from waves 1 and 2 (hope to find some 3 tomorrow @ TRU). This is likely old news to most and pales in comparisson to what is pictured above...but fun and nostalgic for those of us who had cardboard sets decades ago...I'll try to post a picture soon!

I've started to build a government warehouse diorama. I used the Marvel figure factory crates & applied labels for the large ones.


Ark fits perfectly inside!


Thanks to Soloboy5 over at Rebelscum for the Ark crate templates!

thats weird. as much as i like the Indiana Jones figures, the paint is a bit sloppy. gloss should only be used when detailing one item of clothing from the other.

for instance i have a model from a 1960's set of Bela Lugosi as Dracula. for the cloak and shoes, my dad said it would be best to paint that a gloss black. however leave the suit in a rather flatter color.

it works well since you can see the contrasting elements from each paint.

thats maybe why the arms look so much different from the jacket.

That's weird. I've never noticed that before! Probably Hasbro being sloppy with the paint aps again!

Here are the templates I used. Again, credit goes to Soloboy5 at Rebelscum.com for the original Ark crate template.



I changed this one to look more like the crates in the warehouse. Using photoshop, I typed with the font 'Impact' & erased parts of the lettering so it would look more like stenciling.
I also did a Russian Army crate! Using a translator website, I put 'Top Secret. Property of the Russian Army. Do not open!'. By the way, I translated the Russian back into English & it said 'The highest of classification. The Russian Army does not reveal!'!!! Anyway, on with the template...



I printed these out onto A4 labels, you can get these from any good stationers. (Or just any paper & use glue) Then you just cut them out & stick 'em on!

Ha! I can actually read what it says, and the literal translation is "Highest Level of Secrecy. Property of the Russian Army do not open!"

You should have put a period after the first word of the last line, or put the last two words a few lines lower. Otherwise, it looks like a run-on sentence, as you can see in my translation.
