Making some headway on the ‘Ring diorama, although I’m amazed at how much more work there is to a 2'x3' scene, compared with my earlier attempts. So this is what I started with, a simple sketch to flesh out the dimensions:
I ended up enlarging it a bit because I wasn’t sure if I could make the track, curbing and shoulder wide enough in 18".
Here’s the track surface (white foam core sprayed with a rattle can) hot-glued to the pink foam. This is my first attempt at hard shell (plaster) scenery, so I’m trying wallboard tape as my mesh to smooth out the overall surface.
It’s drying in the basement now, right next to the dehumidifier, so with a little luck I can start priming the plaster this evening!
