Diorama ideas?

Post by Futari- » Mon, 13 Aug 2001 23:23:56



Well, I thought that I would take the plunge, and build my first
diorama. I've got the 1/35 Master Grade Ingram 1, and I'm going to pair
it off with an older Kaiyodo 1/35 Griffin that I picked up off of
Yahoo!Japan Auctions (Thanks Celga!!  http://www.gelga.com   ).
Yesterday I picked up a 4 figure kit of a LAPD SWAT team that I think
will look pretty nice kind of deployed around the Ingram
http://www.dragon-models.com/html/dragon03.html#6502     .  So, does
anyone have any other ideas that they'd like to throw my way? Such as
what I could use for building construction? I'm thinking along the lines
of a street scene showdown between the Griffin and the Labor. Thanks!!

Jeff, who's REALLY hoping for a MG Helldiver, since I've got a diorama
planned for that one, too.

   There was a scene in the second volume of the Patlabor manga, between
(IIRC) and Ingram and a Brocken - Noa tripped the Brocken, which went crashing
into the side of a housing complex where a young couple were about to get it
on.  High on the comedic factor if you can sculpt figures yourself.  :)

   I don't really know, myself.  Some kind of wood probably - strips for the
framework and then thin sheeting for the walls...

Verlinden makes a 1/35 "diorama" of a WWII soldier in bed with a woman
titled "What did you do during the war, daddy?" ;)

   Ah!  Good to know there's such a vast array of pre-made diorama elements
already available! :)

   There does seem to be a lot of nice 1/35 stuff available...  I'd just be
kind of irked if I was going for "Downtown Tokyo, 1998" and wound up instead
with "Downtown Berlin, 1942"

   Speaking of which, I am seriously disappointed that Shinohara missed its
shipping date three years ago.  We're supposed to have giant robots, damnit!

I guess celga is good for getting models cheap from yahoo
auction.....personally, I'm ok with their service. I feel they charge
kind of too much if you just want to buy some anime stuff(most of them
aren't anywhere close to 5,000yen at all and $10 a pop....eek. This is
stupid but first I thought you paid $10 fee for total of aution value
10,000 yen...hehe. That would be sweet....)

Anyway, isnt there a scene in the series where they fight on the
bridge?(I can't remember exactly since it's been quite few years
now.....I could've mix it up with something from the PSX game....)

Not quite along the lines I was going for :)

   I dunno, I think it fits Patlabor very well.  "Damned giant robot
battles..."  Plus, of course, having the wall smashed in caused the girl's
parents to appear.  :P'

Well, remember, they ARE a business, and not just doing this for fun...

I'm aware of that of course!....I'm just saying they could at least make
least make a less fee for under 5,000yen item. Besides, it's more likely
people want to get more than one item when using their service to try to
save on shipping.
