A Taste of Armageddon Collage by enc86 A Taste of Armageddon Collage by enc86
Dominic knew the tale all to well, during the fall of 2017 the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant had a massive meltdown covering most of new England and northeastern Canada with heavy radiation, the aftermath made most of that area a wasteland. The US government and help from governments around the world tried to evacuate the area and cordon it off. with their joint effort the "neutral zone" was established. Rumors soon circulated of strange creatures and some even speculated that world governments were using this "zone" as a black site for scientific experiments. it was those strange tales and rumors of scientific discovery, adventure and fortune that brought Dominic to the wretched place. his team was to sneak in and report on anything they might find. it was soon after he entered Vermont that he found something he qualified as strange.After a quick scan he quickly got on the radio to the rest of his team
"I think I might of found something..."

this is a quick little 1/35 diorama heavily inspired by the game series "S.t.a.l.k.e.r." most of the elements are pretty random, this is what went into this one: the jeep is a Tamiya model kit, the figure is a modded zvezda figurine ,the base is a flat rock i found, ground work is a real dirt/pastel mixture, road is made of plaster of pairs, green ooze is sealant caulking, sign and newspaper are scaled down images from the net, random bits and bobs and the claw is a real spur from one of my roosters. all in all i am happy with how this one came out and i leaned a few new things in the process. pretty good for two days worth of work and i am sure this is not the last time i do a "zone" scene.

how do you attach the model onto the the diorama base? and are the stowage glued or cemented as well?
enc86 Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2013
on this one, i had to use a could of drops of super glue on the wheels. it held the the jeep really good. some people will put a bolt in the base and a hole in their  model and use a nut to attache them.(that works better on tanks and bigger models)

the stowage is indeed glued onto the model. i tend to paint the stowage individuality then attach them to the model with superglue. seems to hold quite good too as i sent this mutt throu the mail the other day and the person receiving it said it was intact(stowage and all) when they got it.

Nice! I will try that I was using poly cement for the stowage and it was ruining the paint. So this was sold? Do you sell your other models?
enc86 Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2013
yea super glue works pretty good. it will still ruin paint but if you place a small amount on the tank/stowage where it will not show, no one will ever know. allso dont use to much as the fumes can cover plastic in a white film.

no i did not sell it, someone really liked it and it was just taking up space so i sent it out.
