Koktebel diorama blog

Finished? I don't think so...

It takes sometimes some time to really figure out what is going wrong in a diorama.
here I finally found out: the red part sucks.
It's bumpy and the colour is not good. i will have to do everything all over again on this specific part..
That's going to be for next week-end I suppose!

Saved by the gong

That's not the first time i save one of my dios at the very last minute. here there was just something not going right, so i had to scratch the whole thing..

More sand

...And then i poured another *yellower* mix of sand that I blended with the surroundings.
I then cleaned the bricks that i had save and placed them back on the scene -with the kid at the middle.

Last color corrections

Of course such a work is never finished.
First there is no real base and I will have to find a decent one
then there is still a lot of colours to correct here and there -near the borders adn especially near the boiler as those colors are too bright and are not so great for a good reading of the dio..

Finished diorama #4

Next diorama to be started in 8 weeks or so :)

Something was wrong...

See this? that's my garden shed where my diorama material is being kept -probably forever as circonstances forced my dioramas out of the house. Anyway that's right you can recognise the diorama.
It's been 1 month it lies there untouched
it took me one bloody month to realize why I didn't like it the way it was!
The black balsa framing looks crap, a number of details in this dio look crap..
so let's take them by the menu

An oak frame

This thing costs thrice as much as the diorama itself, this is ridiculous. But then I really like this dio, so maybe the 40€ spent were worth...
