UN-BE-LEIVABLE yet again mate, the amount of detailing and real life weathering you put into these dioramas
is just mind blowing.... drooly

Thank you kindly. Finally took some outdoor photos of this 1/24 scale truck loading bay diorama. morning sun is not always the best to take pics, especially when it's winter. But it will do this time around.

Thank you. The forklift is 1/24 scale toy I found at the local grocery store. This is the wip:

Forklift WIP:
Did some detail work on the forklift to give it some character. This is a Dinky toy model I bought at my local grocery store. The price was 'ok' and on top of it, it is 1/24 scale. To my surprise this model is pretty close to the real thing in accuracy. So I did not have to do too much extra work to get it to look descent. I added the hydraulics, strobe, extra lighting and cabling bind to the framework of the forklift.






----------------------------

Made a lock for one of the opening, which I'not too sure what it is used for; but according to my prototype pic, it has a gas-tank lock on the right side of the chassis. So I made it to look like the one in my pic.













---------------------------------

Added some small details to the steering wheel:



Scraped away the extra stud that was on the forks:



-------------------------------------

Added an extra link from the steering wheel to the base of the forklift floor:



--------------------------------------

Since this forklift was missing peddles, I scratch built a pair:



An over view of the forklift ready to paint:

--------------------------

The forklift painted and weathered. Looks much better than in its original state. I see I forgot to add the logo before weathering(Darn it!!!) See if I can still add it.
























--------------------------------

I used some kind of grease( don't know what kind) Otherwise, I usually use machine grease, mixed with black paint. Then I just apply it on the areas that has it on the real model. Like on the rack below:

That is just awesome, all of it. Looks real. Great job. When you mix the grease and paint together does it dry out or does it still stay tacky like grease always is?

It stays as is. For how long, I am not sure. It's the real industrial grease and they stay greasy for ever, so to speak. Smile

Yes. Extremely difficult. Usually die-cast models are available but then it because more expensive.
