Made some real headway today. I added some of the accessory junk pieces, some in the interior, and the tires, hood, and some twisted suspension parts on the body. The other work was to take some black oil paint and thin it way down to use as a sort of wash. this made areas of the vehicle dark, stained, etc.

Sometimes the MOJO takes over and things get done. The base is painted, the Batmobile is attached to the base, and I have gotten started applying some tufts of grass and short grass. Still a ways to go but the finish line is visible now.

Making broad leaf plants and creating mounds on the base.

[44382630910_84303a189b_b]broadleaf plant 2 by teddy ladd, on Flickr

Mounting the mounds and staining "rocks"

[31260575547_8057975465_b]stones n rocks by teddy ladd, on Flickr

The "mounds" are artist foam core with the paper stripped off and hot glued in sandwiches.
Then using a xacto knife I carved the foam into shape, stuck a toothpick in the bottom,
slathered the styro with white glue and sprinkled mixed grass over the whole piece. After the grass was dried, I transferred the toothpick to the TOP at steep angles and mounted them around the
batmobile with copious hot glue. Once the hot glue cooled, I pulled the toothpicks out. Touch ups may be needed if there are any gaps.

The "broad leaf plants are cheap copy paper cut and prepared per the pictures above. Later I placed a
curved piece of floral wire with a tiny drop of hot glue on the end. Once dry, a dot of yellow paint makes a flower. The red flowers are drops of white glue and red paint.

Very close to the end my friends.

I added one tiny item to the diorama last night but too tired to get it published here until this AM.
Its a glass bottle made from clear sprue. I keep ALL clear sprue because it has so many uses. I did
not execute this bottle very well but it is my first attempt at the technique which is NOT my idea.
Saw it online a long time ago.

you need a candle and matches/lighter
relatively thick and long piece of clear sprue
sanders
knife or cutters
Styrene glue such as Tamiya Extra Thin or similar

heat the styrene over the candle flame while holding each end of the sprue. when the sprue gets soft enough,
gently pull it apart until you have the desired shape. hold very still while the sprue cools and hardens.
cut out the section that best represents a bottle shape. Sand into final shape. The sprue will appear clouded or milky. To clear it up apply the styrene glue. Add label if desired.

Thank you! I’m optimistic that most in the GB will be finished. There is great diversity.

This has to be one of the most inspired and innovative ideas for a diorama I have seen.  I love it!  So much tiny details to draw you in, I am deeply impressed!

Thank you for those kind words!
The overall idea was planted in my brain by another modeler here on Genessis.
I recognized his suggestion earlier in the thread. However, this build/diorama is part
of a trilogy that will soon be 2/3 complete. By soon I mean I have no real idea!
Almost finished this piece.

BTW--the art piece in your banner is very moving. I really love that art!

OK, so close I can smell the finish line! In the montage there is a shot where I did some final fill-in with vegetation and gravel. Sloppy.I just apply white glue to the base as needed, then use a spoon or tweezers to drop the fill in place. Sometimes I used a Q-tip to push the material into the glue. After some drying time--30 min?--I turn the diorama upside down over a wastebasket and tap it to get the loose material off the base.

The remaining 3 pictures represent the base after I used IPA and Q-Tips to scrub away any wash or residue from the tile. Of course I did more touch up work AFTER this point.

One critical finish point was using the pigment--slate Gray--to dust everything and give the diorama an overall dirty, aged, faded look. Hopefully you will see that in the final finish pictures.

All I have left now is to seal everything down with some flat varnish. Soon, very soon!

Thanks, it is rather striking, isn't it?  I tripped over it some years ago somewhere on the internet, I can't even remember where, but it just captivated me so much I had to save it.  Then, when I joined the forums, I dug it out and decided to use it.
