Fallen Armor 'Junkyard' Diorama - now called boneyard

Recommended Posts

I thought I'd put together a small dio that somewhat depicts vehicles fallen to IED's or heavy attacks which left them totally destroyed and unusable. I had seen quite a few pics of badly damaged vehicles, beyond repairs, just put into a heap or collected together and placed into a 'Junkyard' type for damaged vehicles. So this is my loose representation of such yards during the Iraqi War...

One of the best diorama themes I have seen in a while. Tells a story in a very simple quiet way. Very nice job. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice job. Nice to see a dio that isn't just a bunch of stuff thrown on a base with no regard to story.

Thank you sirs. Nice to know you approve of this theme. I am still adding to this dio, so it is not 100% complete. I am getting it ready for a show in March.

Had a change of heart and decided to end the Gun truck, I was working on seprately, life and add it to the Fallen Armor dio. Even added a dog as this was also common in these yards.

Thanks but now i have completely changed the size of the dio...

 

boneYard is the name of this one. ... Second and final version of the 'Fallen Armor' dio I've been working on. I decided to scrap the older version due to it's size. I decided I wanted something more compact. So here it is. Nothing new except the container has been repainted and chipped. Altered some parts on the vehicles and added some stuff but otherwise, the theme is the same. The name has also been changed to what it was meant to be called in the first place.

I always love looking at this dio! It is beyond amazing! Always something new to see the more you look at it.

A GREAT diorama! Wonderful techniques everywhere from ground cover to rust, to the ripped down poster on the truck. If you have no objection, I do have one SMALL constructive criticism. It seems unusual that I don't see one blade of grass or weeds growing around anything. I have been to a lot of salvage yards, and even the most pristine still have weeds around.

 

Just an observation FWIW. Sorry about the nit pick.

Nothing wrong with constructive criticism. :) Thank you for the tip. But unfortunately this dio is no more.
