So I'll kick my new thread off with what I'm working on right now.

MG 1/100 MS-06R-1A Zaku II w/ Custom Diorama

https://scontent-a-hkg.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/t1.0-9/10410212_10203111475040312_2095874682604682252_n.j pg

Started by sketching out the layout with pencil
https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpf1/t1.0-9/10394800_10203111807808631_3222550331886337805_n.j pg

Next is foam + masking tape. Great way to create a smooth service. Its like using plaster or paper mache.

Next I coat the entire thing with wall plaster. It gives the flat service a nice texture and also great for creating that "rock face"

Rocks, Sand and some sticks. Also the foundations of my bridge!

So I painted my base! Went with a forest look!

June 23, 2014, 6:25 AM
Wow that looks amazing! Can't wait for you to finish it.

June 23, 2014, 7:54 AM
DUDE! This is awesome! Thank you for posting these pictures of your progress on this. The scenery you made looks awesome, what did you use to create the water?

June 23, 2014, 11:28 AM
Its still drying but I use a gloss clear floor varnish from your local hardware store. You need to build it up in layers. Long process but should look really good when done :D

June 23, 2014, 11:28 AM
I agree, progressive pics like these give you a great look on what it takes to create a good diorama. Your work on this so far is looking excellent. Very nice idea, using masking tape to get a smooth surface. Goes to show that simple techniques can still yield great results.

It looks like the painting process is the most difficult due to how it affects the final look so much. Not so good paint job and all the work before is at risk of being ruined. It's not the case with this one though. Looks darn realistic.

Totally correct. Anyone can add trees and stuff but the overall paint job is what brings it out. I will share some of my other WIP from my previous builds to help others get an idea on how they are made

Did a little of Pla plating but i'm still a bit of a noob with it so didn't go overboard with mods till I'm more confident. I've customised the gun too (Added a rocket launcher cause I can haha) and hacked up a couple of parts from other kits to glue on him. It's not over the top but I tried to put stuff that would be effective or actually look like it was supposed to be there. Custom Rivets where nailed into him too :)
https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/t1.0-9/10301588_10203002368712722_3125354150038534604_n.j pg
Starting working on the base today. Added foam and wall plaster.
https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/t1.0-9/10414526_10203002369032730_5792514593165902851_n.j pg
Next was clay and the 1/76 Tank that I buried lol

- - - Updated - - -

I am trying a new technique that I've learnt very recently compared to last time (My strike rogue) and I think this way is HEAPS better and looks 10x more real. Can't wait to finish the other 3 and start painting the thing :D
https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/t1.0-9/10262206_10203009579892997_2918330597895648747_n.j pg
Masking tape + Very thin wire
https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc1/t1.0-9/1017537_10203009582253056_3031850023764438629_n.jp g
Masking tape around the trunk
https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/t1.0-9/10417628_10203009582613065_240942271048729947_n.jp g

Used clay + superglue to set the palm. I also got my cutters and cut into the clay at the base to give it that palm look

- - - Updated - - -

Ok so covered the whole thing with dirt and sand (Sand is where the moss is going to be) and the sprayed over it with flat back and white (In areas I wanted it to be lighter)
https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/t1.0-9/q73/s720x720/1514949_10203016329781740_8243796070470431759_n.jp g
Now I paint. What I've done is use a dark brown wet wash -> semi wet light brown -> dry brush tan -> dry brush white -> Paint the moss and tank and house lol.
https://scontent-b-hkg.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc3/t1.0-9/q72/s720x720/10367607_10203016328661712_4780402586264185371_n.j pg
Detailed up the tank with rust and weathering. I did it all with paint so didn't need to use the Tamiya Pigments. I think i'll save em for the gundam.
https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/t1.0-9/q71/s720x720/10359555_10203016328381705_5339615477959875921_n.j pg
So I went and painted the house, crates and oil barrels. Made sure I did it as realistic as possible!
https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/t1.0-9/q74/s720x720/1505325_10203016326781665_3187103445174666762_n.jp g
I used the Tamiya Enamel Wash for this effect. I didn't just panel wash but washed the whole side wall. It made it look dirty and look like something that was in the jungle for a while
https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/t1.0-9/q73/s720x720/10155195_10203016326341654_5180631587556874334_n.j pg
Now palm trees always have dead leaves so I made sure I painted some of them dead. I airbrushed a flat dark green -> dry brush light green -> dry brush a tan colour
https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/t1.0-9/q71/s720x720/10348463_10203016325421631_5278673189427135875_n.j pg
Now onto the main foliage. What you use is either pre-made stuff or you get some sponge + blender + glue + sticks and then paint.
https://scontent-a-hkg.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc3/t1.0-9/q71/s720x720/10376713_10203016324061597_8762061898531931347_n.j pg
Finally got to add some of my foliage to the scene. I used laser cut paper foliage and pva glue.

June 23, 2014, 12:08 PM
Man, seeing these progressive pics are just amazing. You do some amazing work with these.

June 23, 2014, 1:27 PM
You know, I think this thread needs to be stickied. Or something, because there's a wealth of info here so far that anyone can actually use and refer to. Excellent pics and excellent work (though we already saw the beautiful finished product for that GM Sniper, haha).

June 23, 2014, 1:52 PM
^That's not a bad idea. Ommeh, in your spare time. Do you think you could possibly compile a small walkthrough on how you go about building a diorama? Materials you use, methods, tips and tricks. Things like that. I know a lot of people would benefit from it. I know I would cause I'd love to delve into diorama building at some point.

June 23, 2014, 5:07 PM
This is amazing. Holy crap. Damn fine work here man. I learned so much just now i have a head ache. Lol. And man if you could make a walkthrough we would all be very grateful. Im planning a moon surface thing for one of my kits and id love to learn more about doing this stuff. And again awesome work.

June 23, 2014, 5:46 PM
Great idea with the large leaf trees/palm trees! That's pretty innovative! Is that a waterbased varnish? Or polyurethane?

June 23, 2014, 5:50 PM
And here I'll pick up how to make a diorama.

Looking forward to the rest and hopefully you can make a walkthrough!

June 23, 2014, 6:26 PM
Fantastic, no other word for it, fantastic

Lacus Prime
June 23, 2014, 6:56 PM
Just.. wow. These are amazing!

June 23, 2014, 10:15 PM
When my friends an I built palm type trees we used bat tape instead of masking it added a texture to the bark. http://woodlandscenics.woodlandscenics.com/ has lots of tutorial videos and also sell a lot of diorama kits. Mainly model train stuff but with creative usage can be made into scfi and or fantasy scenes.

June 23, 2014, 11:46 PM
Thanks so much for all the kind words! I'll be glad to do a proper walk through on how I create dioramas. On my next project I'll take you through step by step what I did.

As as for the water, it's a water based varnish.

Finally got my coat of rust paint onto the kit. Hopefully have it finished in a couple of days :D

July 14, 2014, 7:36 PM
Nice man are you going to do the rock salt trick?

July 15, 2014, 6:25 AM
Nice man are you going to do the rock salt trick?
Just hairspray. Didn't want to go too overboard with the rust lol

So 1 arm down. This is the rust effect I'm aiming for

July 15, 2014, 10:56 AM
Wow, and you did that with just using hairspray? Very nice results. I need to try that out one day.

July 16, 2014, 7:20 AM

I am really liking the rust affect that you're doing on this guy. It looks so real.

July 16, 2014, 10:01 PM
Wow man thats is really good looking. Its really really rusty.

July 16, 2014, 11:24 PM
Welcome to the boards! That diorama looks amazing, and the rust looks lifelike.

July 18, 2014, 7:34 AM

Added some Tamiya Weathering Master to the body. Still waiting to do the legs. Started on the waterfalls and current in the river.

July 18, 2014, 7:55 AM
I still can't get over how awesome the rust looks on this guy. What are you using to make the waterfall?

July 18, 2014, 8:25 AM
The falls themselves are just lines of silicon. Use a paddle pop stick to blend together. Then get a paint brush with some white paint and silicon mixed together and create the texture :)

July 18, 2014, 10:22 AM
Ah ha, really cool. I can't wait to see those waterfalls applied to the scene. They are going to look really cool.

July 18, 2014, 11:08 AM
Oh wow. That brother Zaku is looking good. And those water effects are genius.

July 18, 2014, 11:16 AM
Amazing stuff as always. Who would have thought creating the waterfall wouldn't be so complicated? It sounds rather simple, but it looks complex. I can see where the Tamiya weathering kits were applied on the Zaku and it's nicely done. Adds that extra touch of realism.

July 18, 2014, 11:51 AM
That is some great stuff. I'm very new to Gunpla, but once I feel a little more confident, I will make some dioramas for my kits. It just adds so much life to the finished product. Thanks for sharing!

July 20, 2014, 7:12 AM
So added the waterfalls to the diorama and finished painting the gundam. Everything all done now just waiting for resin to dry and I'll take some better photos for you all :D

Holy shit. Im drooling... Damn man thats so awesome. Awesome work.

July 20, 2014, 3:09 PM
That is beautiful man.

July 20, 2014, 5:02 PM
Oh em gee man. That is gorgeous! I am in awe of your work sir. Truly amazing.

July 20, 2014, 6:06 PM
Wow, the waterfall looks great and it's pretty darn realistic. Hard to believe it's just white paint giving it that look.

July 20, 2014, 11:14 PM
I rushed it tho. I'm happy with it but could have been a lot better so I'm gonna do another waterfall for my next diorama. I'll do a detailed walk through for everyone here too

July 20, 2014, 11:52 PM
Oh come on you're being modest. It looks great even if you say you rushed it.

July 20, 2014, 11:58 PM
It still looks AWESOME and a walk through would be most helpful.

July 21, 2014, 12:33 AM
Cool, we'll look forward to a one heck of a comparison then, between this one and the one you'll work on next. Honestly, I doubt we'll see a difference. Kinda hard to determine awesome from awesome, haha.

July 21, 2014, 2:09 AM
Jeez the scenery alone should win an award, weathering looks great on the kit too definitely get the impression it's been around for a while.

July 21, 2014, 5:18 AM
Thank you for all the kind words :)

July 22, 2014, 8:04 PM
I really love the paint rack. Did you make that yourself?

July 23, 2014, 7:44 AM
I really love the paint rack. Did you make that yourself?


Used left over wood from a fence and cut it up. Just nailed and glued it together at a 45 degree angle and drilled out the bases

July 23, 2014, 5:52 PM
I might have to steal that idea.

July 29, 2014, 4:32 AM
Next project. These 2 will be used in a diorama. I'm keeping the diorama secret at this time as it will be used in a step by step walk through.

A Z'gok and a red frame.....? Im confus... Well this is gonna be good. That Z'gok looks good i need to get me one or two. And every body loves red frames. Ill be watching with great interest.

July 29, 2014, 8:11 AM
How is your Z'Gok's flexibility... I have Char's MG Z'Gok and I have a real problem with its arms falling off -_-

July 29, 2014, 8:53 AM
My hands keep falling out lol...

July 29, 2014, 12:08 PM
I'm anxious to see your step-by-step procedures. It's a gold mine of information, not to mention incredible skill for both the diorama part and the kits.

July 30, 2014, 2:37 AM
Hehehe WELL

These are both for a competition I'm entering here in Australia. The theme is the ultimate badass astray and "forgotten relics". Both different competitions but I'm putting both the ZGok and Astray in the same diorama and kill 2 birds with one stone. Also like i said before, I wasn't happy about the water fall i did last time so there's a waterfall in this diorama. That's as much as I will share and I'll let your imagination run a bit :)

Full walkthrough located in the how to section. Teaser shot for you guys :D

August 7, 2014, 11:51 AM
Did you really use actual dirt from the soil? Just curious because it worked out great.

August 7, 2014, 11:16 PM
Correct just dirt from the ground lol

August 18, 2014, 12:25 PM
Wow, that's awesome looking! Especially loving the weathering on the Z'gok. And now I'm really curious to see what you did with the Astray...

August 18, 2014, 1:07 PM
The Z'gok looks amazing, as if it came out like that from the box. I'm getting a tropical island with a volcanic beach vibe from everything so far.

August 18, 2014, 3:54 PM
I was kinda getting a "Creature from the Black Lagoon" feel. Like the Z'Gok is crawling up out of the muck. And I'm loving it! Everything looks great man.

This came out way better than expected. The diorama looks fantastic and realistic. The kits themselves are very well-done and clean. I don't really have a nitpick for this; Everything looks great.

Nicely built dude. That back must be heavy no? Do you gave a theme or story, what was the inspiration?

November 2, 2014, 11:21 AM
I would want to fight that in a Gunpla Battle...and I'm a sucker for 4 armed things. My only question, what did you name that beast?

November 2, 2014, 3:33 PM
Oh that is beastly. And that base is to cool.

November 2, 2014, 4:56 PM
Cheesy cause I stole the white wolf logo so I called it the ZGM-07 Wolf Warrior lol.

Still need to paint the base and the dark matter booster pack too.

November 2, 2014, 5:34 PM
That is some impressive work man. It really looks like the whole suit comes together very well, and the colors work very well together. Awesome good sir.

November 2, 2014, 10:10 PM
Nicely built dude. That back must be heavy no? Do you gave a theme or story, what was the inspiration?

So the competition was for us to build our own Gundam Build Fighter that we would battle with. It was an extension of our own self and the criteria was to be as bad ass as possible! So what says Bad Ass in my books is big guns and 4 arms hahaha.

Also I'm already working on my GBWC2015 entry. It's gonna be CRAZY! If I can pull it off!

November 3, 2014, 2:46 AM
Very creative project you got going there, both with the kit and the base. Looks positively beastly. Can't wait to see how the base will look once completed.

Man that action base in incredible. Where did you get all of those parts that you put on to it?

November 5, 2014, 11:47 AM
That's worthy of an appearance in GBF right there.

November 5, 2014, 11:51 AM
That base is an example of what a good paint and weathering job can do. It was a motley collection of random electronics parts before and now it looks like the grimy surface of a big machine.

November 5, 2014, 4:13 PM
Daaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuummmmm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!

That's one bad-ass kit and bad-ass base you got there. Awesome!
Never crossed my mind that electronic junk can be used to create such badass base. Maybe someday I'm gonna use that idea.

November 5, 2014, 11:26 PM
That is pretty epic! And is that a heatsink on the base?

November 5, 2014, 11:57 PM
You guys are toooooo kind hahaha. Thanks and yes the base was created from a old motherboard for a PC. You can see all the little "Cans" are transistors and the large fin thing was a heat sink for a chipset. The pipes are all old spurs cut up to match. I used some pla play and old parts left over from my gundam kits. The fan thing was from a section of wall from Warhammer 40K. The paint technique I used for this was a thick black base coat to make it all "mould" together. I followed by a coat of Tamiya Hull Red for rust. Covered that with hairspray and then a coat of Tamiya Grey and Flat Aluminium. Out came the toothbrush and warm water and that is how I created the rust. Once that was dry I coated it all with a Mr Hobby Clear Gloss. I hit it with a panel wash from Tamiya and I didn't clean it. I wanted it to have a dirty look to the panel wash. I then dry brushed silver and black everywhere to create a look of scaring. Once that was done I grabbed my Tamiya weathering master and rubbed Soot, Rust and Orange Rust all over the edges and slapped on a coat of My Hobby Clear Matte.

Hopefully that helps you guys get a mental image of how I did it :)

Excellent description of your procedure for the base. Tells the "how-to" just fine :cool:

November 10, 2014, 4:49 PM
Very nice man and yes I'd agree it does exude badass

November 12, 2014, 7:26 AM
Ommeh, this is inspiring me to do a 4 armed model as well. Well played on that.

Awesome work right there! Looks very good.

November 28, 2014, 11:03 AM
This is looking awesome man!

November 28, 2014, 9:19 PM
So who's going to pilot this G-Fighter, Sleggar or Sayla?

November 28, 2014, 9:26 PM
G fighter looks kickass, but wouldn't the damage extend to the internals and not just the armor?

November 29, 2014, 12:01 AM

The idea is the armor wasn't blown off but more so the insides blew out the armor exposing the internals :)

April 28, 2015, 6:22 AM
So it's been a while... Biggest understatement every hahaha...

Last post was November 29th 2015 from me and it's now April 28th 2016. Finally some updates from this kit hahaha.

A lot of my images have gone due to Facebook chaning the URL. I will look into setting up a Flickr account so the images will always be there.

Arms are done! Next on the list is the waist!

May 10, 2015, 10:57 PM
really looking good. are you going to flat coat it? its still very glossy for being weathered.

May 12, 2015, 12:39 AM
Will still need to weather it with pigments and dry brushing. Once that is done will hit it with a flat clear and finish. Doing waist tonight.

May 12, 2015, 12:55 AM
nice that is going to look really good.

June 11, 2015, 11:15 PM
Progress so far!

Base has been base coated now. Also it has been waterproofed on the inside ready for Resin! Also used tissues and PVA glue to create the ripple effect inside the base. Will be painting the base a different colour soon.

https://scontent-lax1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfa1/v/t1.0-9/11391784_991289930903581_4413778412902269920_n.jpg ?oh=ad09902758dd8accde58532b6c6b6bf4&oe=55FF6B96

RX-78-2 Ver 3.0 Progress!
Still need to paint his legs but slowly getting there. Waist and feet completed. Water slides have replaced the exisiting decals.

Fantastic work. Love seeing others amazing work, really inspiring.

June 12, 2015, 7:48 AM
Amazing work on the 3.0 man. The pre-shading looks great and all the details and lining looks spectacular.
