Finally I managed to finish this diorama. Deedlit was ther very first kit I bought after years-long break in modeling. It was over two years ago. I could do some things better, but I didn’t manage to. I’ll be more careful next time. I’ve made the base all by myself. Whole kit is painted with Vallejo paints.
Still, it doesn’t mean I didn’t put effort in it and I hope You’ll like it 🙂
I finished base for diorama. It’s made of polymer clay, which I had to boil. To boil, instead of baking, because our oven just died day before I made it. Meanwhile I managed to drop the whole base, but it caused no damage to it (I was REALLY lucky).
And worked a little on Deedlit. Added some hair, because her haircut was boring.
So here are few photos I took during last few weeks. Most of work was about sanding, so there wasn’t much to show.
Overall she’s primed now and only few things needs to be fixed before painting.
Since I’m really unpatient person and I’m going to got both Deedlit and Pirotess kits, I thought it may be fun to put them together in one piece.
I’m not sure, if I can call this diorama, but that was first word which came to my mind.
Here’s quick sketch I’ve done in openCanvas5 to show my idea. Any suggestions are welcome 🙂
I’ve been thinking about materials as well. As for now, my idea is to sculpt base with Super Sculpey, or Sculpey LivingDoll. But first I need to get them. It isn’t going to be easy, nor cheap.
Though, I have no idea, if I’ll ever find place to put them in my room in way they won’t get damaged by any accident 😐
Accidentaly, while browsing my shopping information I found this:

Last time I’ve checked, estimated arrive date was 29 of June. According to this message in my account information and on product’s page she’s already in stock! ^_^
Two days ago I recieved Deedlit, for which I waited since end of March, and in next two weeks I’ll recieve Pirotess? That’s awesome news!
Now I only need to find time to assemble them all 😛
