Well finally I got this diorama finished, I hope you didn’t get bored with the WIP posts. By coincidence today would have been Salute 2020 at the Excel centre in London. Unfortunatley it had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak and since then the venue has been converted into a 4,000 bed Nightingale emergency hospital. Who would have thought that a few weeks ago!
Back to the diorama.
The final figure got painted and positioned. Another fine figure from Hasslefree which goes by the name of “Jholkar of Bolverk”. Other than a little tidying up and some little bits of vegetation the model was complete.
Below are images of the completed diorama. At the end I have also included an image of the model in its early stages where I was playing around with the pieces and how it would in theory go together. I thought it might be of interest to see how the basic design played out.
This model is destined for Telford unless I come up with something better in the meanwhile or the show does not go ahead in light of the prevailing circumstances. Also I haven’t as yet come up with a better title than “Oh My God!” If anyone has any ideas please let me know.
Now it is time to move on to something new. Maybe I will give some of the ideas you guys came up with a go at some point in the future too.
Here’s hoping you like the end result. The images aren’t the greatest but unfortunatley rain prevented me taking some outside pictures.
