Thanks!

 

So you basically shrouded the whole thing with sheet styreen painted back. Or is it some other material?

 

George

Yes, it's all shrouded in plasticard (to hide the foam board and the wood of the base) that I primed with black primer, then painted with a mix of Reaper HD Solid Black and Matte Varnish then hit afterwards the whole thing with Testors Matte Varnish spray.

 

If I had to re-do it again, I'd have cut the front and sides out of one bigger piece of plasticard so there wouldn't be seams right there.

Where'd/whose work is the poster and book pages from? That's pretty cool, and I would love to see more.

Books/poster are from doing an image search online with Google for "Necronomicon." I then saved the images I liked, opened my photoshop program (GIMP), and resized to what size I wanted (after I had measured the area that they'd go). Printed it out and glued to the books and wall. Very simple, very effective, and visually appealing. A lot of modelers do this for posters and to add interest/realism to their era scenes.

      Some may have seen it in the Facebook Group already, but I am working currently on a spelunking diorama that is a study in OSL. My first serious attempt at OSL it turned out to be a daunting and mindbending affair. I established the base colours and lighting via airbrush and then went back in with brush. Still a few things to fix, but it is getting there.

      part one was opened in mid December, part 2 on Christmas morning. 
      I’ll build into a full diorama in January 
      Which I will then hide until next year

      So I really had to share this because I'm super proud of it and had to show it off

      It feels like an age since I last posted a terrain build, my last build journal (still unfinished) was actually in October of last year, so it has been a while!
       
      Anyhow, my circumstances have changed and I have found myself with more free time to enjoy my hobby, and so this week I was able to sit down and start a new build, another photo backdrop, this time a cemetery (sorry no build journal this time, I just wanted to enjoy the project).  This one had been on my to do list for ever, the gravestones, coffin and the wall are all Reaper accessories.  I had a lot of fun with this one.
       
      On another positive note, I've now got some time to go back and revisit my 'Post Apocalyptic Suburbia' build journal.  I'm sure  many people don't even remember it, but leaving it unfinished has really been bugging me, so hopefully that one will have a much overdue update by the weekend!

      I decided because I have a bunch of grass boards, that I should do some backdrops for nice dioramas and maybe just regular photos. So I primed (mostly matte medium which I have liters of and a little primer and a tiny bit of craft paint for volume) some of my many cereal boxes.
      Should I do anything more than sky and land/horizon? Tree silhouettes maybe? Got any good examples
