    Riders in the Skies (Hyaku Shiki)

    The glass makes it a bit hard to take pictures of it all together.





    I didn't know how to do the background, so i printed out the Earth on photo paper. Cut that out and glued it to the background. The actual space scene, i freehand airbrushed, then flicked the "stars" on with white paint on an old tooth brush.



    The scene that inspired it.









    I used Aurora gems and paper for the eye, and forehead lens.



    Aurora gem inside the cockpit. I also extended the hinge so that it opens up more, at a slightly crooked angle like in the show.







    I put the clip on top at an offset position, so that i can add a hanger so that i can put it on the wall.

    Got the perfect piece of music to accompany this diorama:

    Re: Riders in the Skies (Hyaku Shiki)

    you should elecro-etch a brass plate that says Riders in the Skies for it. that would be a nice final touch. all you have to do is find a 12v power supply you dont use anymore and get some cotton buds and saltwater. then mask it off and etch. its easy and looks good.

    Re: Riders in the Skies (Hyaku Shiki)

    i made a salt water etcher and i use it to put my initials on my tools. its really easy. and the etch comes out just as clean as your masking. just throwing the idea out there. but i get ya.
