Complete Diorama Information (repost, sort of)

So I wanted to do a post showing everything about my diorama. I’ll be copying stuff from my older posts and combining and showing some new information. I made so many changes I thought it warranted a completed post again! Look at the old posts for some other views/information.

Here is the video I made for it when I first “completed” it:

The changes from that video to now:

  • Coke truck – Check all the vending machines I put in back. The side door you can see cases upon cases of coke ready for delivery!
  • Remove the very large car lift and replaced with 2 3D printed ones. It was just taking up too much room and I wanted one in the other bay so I figured they should look the same!
  • Added landscaping accessories
  • Completely redesigned and printed garage doors. The original ones were just way too thick. The new ones are at least half the thickness or skinnier. Also I removed all the windows except a few slits. These look like doors I’ve seen on automotive garages in the area!
  • Other accessories

Here are some new pictures I took:

Now here are the items printed mostly on photo paper:

  • Newspaper on couch
  • Clock faces
  • Playboys
  • Price tag on rotors
  • Pizza box
  • Legal pad
  • Manilla folder and papers inside

New Motorcycle

Bought a used 2009 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Customer Special Edition from a friend at a great price! Has very loud exhaust on it and never thought I was a fan of that, but now that I have a bike with it, I LOVE it!

Wife and I are riding it as much as possible through the back roads and we’ll be filming some of the rides, 3 are on my youtube channel already:

Another diorama update

Not sure if I mentioned or not but back in January I got rid of the Hictop 3DP-17 printer and bought a Prusa MK3S and wow am I loving it! I was able to do smaller and more detailed garage doors so I printed all new garage doors and tracks. I got rid of the big battery powered car loft also and printed 2 new ones that are stationary. I also put together a Coke truck model and printed a forklift. Here is the current look of the diorama!
