  1. that looks great:D

    and  is "doable" at that scale 1/4000....


    however it doesn't look like SDFM

    they only have 9 - 10 years to build both the city, military base and rebuild the ship

    which they first need to study, also in the study phase there probably weren't that

    many civilians to build a city, since the site probably was off limits...

    also the un -  anti un wars took some time...

    so in the end there probably weren't that many buildings above 3 - 5 storys 

    i assume most, military personnel lived on the base...

    That's an amazing idea! Where will you display it? I would love one protected under a plexi-glass as a low table in the lounge :D

    that's actually a good idea, but then it should be the entire island and surrounding sea :wub: loving that idea.

    It would already look cool if you hang it at a wall in it's current state.

    actually i can do that, the board in the picture is only the "blueprint" so to speak :D


    the actual diorama display in its current state...



  3. i might aswell make this an actual thread...

    i have have started my very first Diorama, and its is the SDF-1 situated on macross island,

    its will be in scale 1/8000.

    the SDF-1 model im using in the diorama is a Bandai 1/8000 storm attacker kit, i converted

    into Cruiser mode, i had to remodel some of the parts since they where not to scale or was simply the wrong shape,

    changes made to parts where:

    Main cannon (gave it more bulk and more details)

    Main Cannon connector (changed shape completely)

    bridge boom (made from scratch)

    bridge (needed separation and details)

    main thrusters (looked to much like feet, changed shape and added details)

    the diorama rough sketch is pretty much done, need more roads though.

    Another interesting SDF1 diorama would be the one at Mars Base where the ship is surrounded by lurking Regults.

    Yes that would be a very interesting one to do... adding dust clouds around the SDF-1 as its trying to take off...

    but are there any good pictures of that Mars base where you see all the base?

    Cool, "little" is only the scale, ey?! B))

    well i always wanted to make the island diorama, and this is the smallest sdf-1 i had on hand... 1/8000

    the 1/15000 and 1/20000 are way too small to make a discernible macross city and military base... (with any details atleast) :wacko:

    and its my first diorama ever so.... ;)
