Just finished indy getting chased by the boulder in raiders when he gets the gold idol.
The dio base was very easy to do it is foam core built up to the desired shape and the boulder is a foam ball picked up at a hobby shopthey were both covered with a 2 part mix of plaster of paris and wood glue.
It was then painted with 4 different colour browns to get the desired colour for the ground work.The folage is from woodland scenics it was glued down and then painted diferent shades of greens and khaki.
Indy is from 3 differnet figures
1- body is from verlinden's US navy landing crew # 1864
2- the head is from verlinden's WW2 civilians #2016
3- the legs are from the bits box
4- the holster is from a german figure it has been slightly modified, the whip is just some string and the idol is a 1/72 figure just cut down and carved to the desired affect. The whole figure was then painted with arcylics and modellers paints.
After seeing a diarama like that I'm speechless! Hemble your talent is awsome. Could you help me with creating mine? I'm making a Star Wars scene and a Indiana Jones Egyptian tomb with Indy in the tomb room. I need some info on how to paint the walls! Where do you find your materials?
Here is a small dio I have completed where indy is pouring sand onto the floor to get reay to take the idol, the whole thing isn't movie accurate but I'm happy with the way it turned out.
The indy figure is made up of different parts from the bits box and then painted with acrylics to get the desired colours.
The pedestal is made from marine foam and formed to the desired shape and then I got a modelling knife and inscribed the symbols.
The floor is 2 part plaster of apris and wood glue and smeared over the base and once semi dry I etched the floor into the plaster.
Once dry the abse and pedestal were painted with arcylics agin to the desired colours.
The idol is made from green stuff a 2 part modelling puddy from GW and then painted gold and the moss is brokenn up pieces of tree foilage from woodland scenics and a wash of tan was added to it. I added sand to indy to simulate him pouring it out.
