    Cobra Island/Rio Lindo by Crocmaster 97

    The first few pics shown here are what I was able to accomplish without spending a cent. All materials used were stuff I had laying around the house from other projects.Name:  Cobra Island diorama pics 1 086.jpg

    The diorama measures 47 by 26 inches and was with four slabs of styrofoam, grass sheet, duct tape, paint. newspaper, modeling clay, play doh. a bunch of tiny nails, cardboard, and some sky background. Keep scrolling down to see this project evolve.

    All the photos with the water are after I spent about $66 on four water kits, one bag of moss, one foilage kit, and a bunch of bottles of both paint and glue. The overall goal of this is to have a diorama of what can be either Cobra Island or Rio Lindo depending upon which era I want do a dio of. I am trying to base this as much as I can on the jungle in the movie Predator which I have watched about 8 times since starting this project. I figure a Central/South American based jungle would work for either Cobra Island or Rio Lindo.

    This is a work in progress and I will post more pics as I progress. I hope to add trees, vines, maybe another hill, and to re-do the sky background to a night background and to wrap it around the sides. Hope you have enjoyed the pics so far and thanks for looking.

    I have yet to add anything new, but I did adjust my camara settings and got some pretty good pics. I found one setting that gives my sky background a dusk like effect.

    After reading ARAH issue 211 I could not resist setting up Cover Girl in a scene I found to be pretty funny. Oddly enough she is a pretty photogenic action figure.

    Thanks, I am taking the same approach to putting together this dio as you did yours, by waiting for coupons. Also if you are looking to expand yours I am finding pet stores have alot good stuff for jungle dios in the fish tank section, but they are usually pretty expensive.
