    Wow, that can of beer is almost as big as a barn. It's starting off very well. I've yet to dip my foot into the dio pool.

    Hi Andy. You are doing very well there mate. I have done 2 small dioramas, and yes it is a lot of fun. How did you do the rust on the VW? It looks real.

    ive used a brush and made it a little fuzzy. then ive put on 2-3 layers of different type of brown, by stamping with the brush and some paper towels, so the paint would "raise up".


    ive figured out that its easyest to paint the car and then sand first time diorama down the biggest areas where the rust is coming.
