For inspiration, here is a thread for all to share their diorama ideas you would like to build.
Simply provide an image, or a description, of the diorama scene that inspires you.
Please, NO images of dioramas already built.

To start with, I would love to build this scene.
It is dramatic, especially with having survivors in the foreground, and all those lights on the boat, water reflections, and stars.

That Titanic build would look great in the Shep Paine shadowbox style

Very dramatic image there Andrew.

I think the simplest version would be to create a collage of the background, including plane and ejected pilot. The foreground is the model part of the diorama.
Otherwise its foreshortening of modelled objects.

I’ve always wanted to build a diorama ofvthe squad of SS guys marching in line across a huge step in Russia. It is a very famous photo, a gentle dip between two hills. It illustrates how a large invading army can be dwarfed by a massive landscape. In 1:35 the grassy plain would be about 10x10m. In 1:76 you lose the idea of massive size.

Actually I’d just like to finish a few models first before I get to dioramas :):

Yes this in a shadow box with lights would be awesome & you could have the lifeboat in a larger scale in the front for a scale effect.

Have been thinking how to create this scene.



A combination of the background to the right hand side, and the Id monster on the left, of the diorama.

The left side is a bit tricky. But because it is in the dark of the evening shadows, and the gorge, it lends itself to utilize a DIY head up display (HUD).
The HU part is a reflective partition window. The D part is a thin sheet of clear Perspex, blacked out, except for the red light bits. A red light bulb is used.
The bluey beam bits can be thin rectangular blue LEDs mounted in the Perpspex. These operate like a running light chaser circuit.

Something based on this scene in the force awakens, its simple but also a big moment for Finn and rare to see blood in the Star Wars Universe


Would need some more troopers for the background and of course a Phasma.


then there is the submerged Sherman in crystal clear waters
