     The diorama is going to be around 5 feet long, and around 20" deep. I am building it in pieces so I can  actually move it. The lab , for example, has a base that is separate from the walls. The beams/scaffolding is removable. Each section will fit into the next (hopefully).The kits will mostly be removable. It keeps me on my toes as I am always thinking about this factor. Who knows? I may actually finish it someday and transport it off to Wonderfest!

Seeing this monster (so to speak) displayed at Wonderfest would be an event in itself!  I imagine you're need an entourage of helpers--and maybe a couple of pack mules--to move it all, but gosh--what a display it would be!  Hope it actually happens!

 So.........some updates. Progress has been painfully slow due to time constraints, but I decided to try videos. They are crude. Just me and a flip trying to show and explain as I go. Here they are.....

Hey Robert, sorry to hear about your divorce. Some women just do 'get ' our passion for our hobbies ( I know, I had 2 ex wives). But you diorama looks awesome!!

  Hey Mitchell I hear you on that. I have had "friendly" arguments with my significant other that many women don't have a hobby. She disagreed and said shopping is one for her. Not really the same thing though.  That's kind of a do it sometimes, not do it other times type of thing that everyone has to do anyway at some time. My ex though........we just never had much in common. 12 years of that!

  Thanks for the compliments on the dio.

Robert,

I have seen many talented people and Cool looking pieces within this hobby but I don't think that Anything will top this Diorama once it's finished. 
I have the Highest respect for you for even taking on such a project.

Best of luck with it.

Very cool idea! Lovin the work in progress

I started to do this about 35 years ago with the Pirates of the Caribbean model kits, along the banks of the Disneyland ride (although living in Aberdeen MD where I grew up, had yet to visit the Magic Kingdom).

Unfortunately, Baseball took over, and I never got past the intial base which I made, and plastered

     Baseball sounds like it would have been more fun anyway. What kid would have had the patience for a project like that? Cool idea though. Maybe........35 years later, you could restart it???
