hi everyone, i am going to show some pics of the diorama i just completed for the joe con this year. there have been some pics on the tank here and there of this dio and some talk of hasbro teasing the public of a new terror drome release, i wish. my bad.
not really knowing what for, i began building support vehicles for this right after i built my first hiss-dozer and hiss-plow. knucks to the tank for putting out this challenge in the first place.
when i found out that the joe con was in kansas city. i decided to make a diorama with vehicles i had been making. they needed an environment and a project. i decided to go with building a terror drome, or rise of. i wanted to build something massive and modular, while only having to haul it 5 miles or so. it needed to be a convincing structure, but still subdued by the natural environment, that being one of the cobra isles and its mountains. the mountains are made of 4 layered plywood "chunks" (2-bases and 2 peaks). the tdrome consists of 2 dromes stacked upon one-another (w/added layers) to give the cobra base a more substantial presence and believability. it all sits on tongue n' groove plywood stained and textured with a right angle chain-saw blade. the mtn's were textured with this technique as well. the dio itself contains close to 70 figures and contains close to 20 or more vechs. most of them disassembled to tape, prime, and paint. i'll quit typing and let the pics speak for themselves. special thanks to fellow tankers for helping me through this process, nick, $b, cobrala, derby0187, boodro, and pyroclasm.
i have included my pics and some links to others. i plan of releasing shots of the individual vechs in the near future. there are better dio shots and more of them here:

Man you really do a phenomenal job... not just the singular custom pieces but the extent to which you paid detail to the act of "construction" being done by the crews. Really man Kudos.
