Diorama building

Hi there,

I plan several dioramas. But until I am able to actually build them I have to collect enough material to furnish them.

So I will show new stuff that I have been able to get in different articles here in the blog and then give them proper labelling. As a result it will be possible to search all articles belonging to a special diorama project :-)

One diorama I am planning to build is a hospital room in 70s style. Here is the first stuff I could gather: several medical pots and bottles and two clipboards. Those two will need a little makeover in de-pinking them.

Another great mailday - awesome :-)

Hey, today arrived stuff from the U.S. and Germany.
The German package had part of Barbie's dreamstore in it and great chairs, table and record player for a living room. Those chairs and table just look like cool 70s stuff but I have no idea who once produced them. If you have any idea, please tell me :-)

Mail from China

Ha, finally today arrived an envelope from Hong Kong containing some clothing stuff I ordered back in December. Well, Steve's head has to be sculpted yet. But at least he has partly arrived ;-)
And Danny (in the green suit) finally got his brown tie.
By the way: the Hong Kong letters always have so beautiful stamps. Again all birds: kingfisher, sea eagle and a wagtail.

Hello :-)


where to start?
As the title suggests I like miniatures in 1/6 scale. You can get an awful lot of stuff in 1/6 but it is less easy with what I am looking for. There is so much pink Barbie-stuff. No, not for me. Well, some for customising. And there are all these war/combat/military figures and fitting equipment. No, also not for me. But again, some stuff for customising.
I mainly try to develop a little world set in civil life somewhere around the late 60s and 70s. Why? Well, it is inspired by a TV-show produced at that time, that I am very fond of.

Cheers, Birko :-)
