I'm using the diorama base from the Revell-Matchbox M-16 Half-track as the basis for a larger diorama. An Academy Jeep will also be in the diorama, as will a dozen or so figures, mostly Italeri US Paratroops. The original diorama base was on of my all-time favourite ones from the Matchbox AFV series. We can rebuild it. Bigger than before, bigger, faster, stronger... :)

That's a really great step by step Andrew. You make it look like even I could do it :grin:

Thanks chaps. I like doing dioramas for vehicles. That's why I like the Matchbox AFV series.

Very interesting; it's fun to watch it come together step by step. Those Matchbox mini-dioramas just beg for a treatment like this.

Nice Tutorial, Andrew. Very nice work. Good to see I am not the only one who "rips off" the lcoal coffee shops for modeling needs.

Actually I bought a huge bundle for $1 from the dollar store. It saves me having to go into coffee shops too much :-D
