Default My Nuclear Disposal Area 2 diorama



This is my attempt at creating a diorama of nuclear waste disposal area two from "Breakaway". My display case is only 13 inches deep, so I had to skew the scene in order to fit the pad and the modified AMT/Ertl Eagle. Due to these dimension limitations, I could not fit any of the laser fence which is a shame. There are dozens of canisters in the lower section that are difficult to see in these pictures. They receive a red glow from LEDs mounted inside.

Other pics:

Pardon the inaccuracies... I was not on this forum when I built this. I really could have used the help.

Thumbs up

Totally jaw-dropping workmanship! Iíve seen many incredible SP99 dioramas but this one tops them all!

A year ago or so there was some talk regarding building such complex diorama when member John Trek developed this wonderful Cargo Pallet Eagle:

Congratulations Bruce, this is truly the ultimate SP99 diorama! Great pictures too!

We had people asking about the tanks used in this machine a couple of years ago. This is beautiful work. Do you have any progress pictures from when you built it? You did a very nice job on that eagle too. Is it an Airfix one?

Thanks everybody. It means a lot to me. Non SP99-types who see this in my display case usually react with a look of confusion and indifference.

Tony42: I'm afraid I didn't take any "in progress" pictures of this project. Most of the superstructure is 3/4" cabinet leftovers that I cut at a friends workshop and some 1/4" MDF. I covered everything with styrene sheet. Even the canisters are simple cuts from a wood dowel rod wrapped in printouts I made on my 'puter. I already had the Eagle from one of my Ertl authentication builds. I have some pics from that... The other major structures: tractor treads, parts of the legs, and the silo covers were made as single masters from styrene sheet and kit parts and then duplicated as resin castings. Looking back, I probably didn't want any photographic evidence of where the main cylinder came from (because my kids would get mad if they knew).

Well, forget about those you can"'t appreciate you art of work (is it english?), your diorama is simply beautifull and I wish I had a tenth of your talent.

Great diorama, congratulations to this wonderful job!
We all understand that the diorama did not become much bigger.... You also did a good job on the AMT Eagle!

I was one of those who were asking about the tanks used for the four legs of the main big cylinder. Here is the thread again: http://www.eagletransporter.com/foru...ear+waste+area

No need to pedantic about these models.

The pad is simply a 1/2" piece of particle board covered in sheet styrene. I think it was an extra from our cheap DVD shelves. As I recall, it was even the right size and I didn't even have to cut it.

Way cool!!! My only surprise is that it took so long for someone to build one. Pat yourself on the back, you deserve it!
