The Mancave

Post by Morrie on Thu 17 Mar 2016, 1:59 pm

I got this one finished, well prob do some more but happy to call it finished for now. Very Happy

Pretty stocked with how it turned out, it was a fun build and look forward to using it as a backdrop for future build photo's.

Now that is a sweet build.  What are the dimensions of the base?

The base is 600 x 300 and its 15mm MDF, i used thin MDF on my last one and i had to brace it because it warped with the glue and weight etc. this base is perfect and not too heavy.

Was showing a friend this a few moments ago, he thought it was a real shed, so that speaks volumes on the quality of the detailing you have put into it, and i think it is just awesome.... bowdown

Thanks mate, I stole the shed with a hole in it idea from you, lol.. so good to get inside shots with the side out of the shed..

Thanks for the kind words fella's, everyone should give building a diorama a go, its fun to watch it transform into a cool backdrop for photo's.

Had a bit more of a go on my Dio, added some detail to the yard with a tree, some more dirt patches near the fence and some rusty old parts laying around, there is also a strange fella walking around.. lol.

Looks great Morrie. I love small details like the parts. You can get really carried away with that stuff. This is some of my stuff from a dio I have been doing, on and off, for a few years now.

That's cool Retro, like how the ute is now just for holding junk, I'm going to add to it all the time that's for sure, my yard was looking to neat so had to add some old car parts, going to mess it up a bit more, want to get some longer grass happening, was maybe going to put in a tyre swing too.

Just got a cool idea looking at your truck, might build me a custom box trailer and fill it with junk. Very Happy

RetrospectKustums, not sounding to picky with your build of the old pickup with the bits in the back, but with the old rims still have the wheel nuts in place would of looked better with out them and small holes drilled in them my2cents
