Resident Evil Diorama
« on: December 13, 2005, 06:15 PM »
I am makin a Resident evil diorama.(j's bar is in construction)I just have 3 questions : how would get a working light in there?J's bar has a few lights mounted on the wall and a few on the celing.What could I do to cover up the wires?   Also Do you guys thing for the floor and wall (it has a wooden floor) it would look good to print some hi res  prints of wood off of google?

Any ideas appreaciated.

Got any pics of what this is supposed to look like?

As for the floor, just regular wood might work very well for you.  On the lights, I've never done anything like that, so I'm not the person to go to... I'd say maybe talk to someone at your local hobby shop.

I'll have the pics up shortly but if ya' want em' now go to google and type in (in images) Resident evil J's Bar.Click the pic on the bottom that sasy j's bar lobby.(dont click full size image go to the site ,look for the pic and then click it from the site...much bigger.

ps. as for the floor ....I already started using foamcore and put the door and wall on so it might look a little "elevated"(ill have pics of the dio too up soon.)

I added lights to my Clone Firebase. I discovered you can get LEDs at radio shack, just run the wires behind the walls, depending on scale used the wire should be in scale.

This I cant wait to see. Funny,  I've been working on a few RE customs using VvsV Joes Id be happy to give you the recipe for the parts when I finish them. Provided you havent made your own yet. ;D

NVM I went to radioshack .com and found a white led now the question is       will I burn my self to a crisp like anakin if I use a led with foamcore?

Im too young to die.


update......O.k. I know the police use humvees in a mulititude of ways......I am stuck on a "patrol" one or a "van" humvee.I'm thinkin a van because in the game they sued something like it to evac people.O.K. they DID have humvees for the police back in 98.(when RE takes place.)Right now I have a u.s. army / UBCS humvee for some "carlos olivera" like soldiers.(UBCS   umbrella biohazard countermeasure services.)Now to dicide on that police one.

Yes LEDs come in white. I used #276-320, and used holders #276-080. They might work for you to space the LED from the foam and actually look like a light fixture.

Ive played them all except RE4 I got it just before Katrina hit, and never got to actuially play it. It still functions, i just havent had time to get into it yet. ;D Im a really big Survival horror fan. My favorite out of them all is Nemesis, Followed very closely by RE1 for the game cube.

What does this have to do with star wars customizing?

I think it's ok to discuss a non-Star Wars custom here some.  We haven't really talked about any sort of dioramas in while.  Speaking of that, I think a foamcore Star Wars diorama would be an interesting project for January's customizing challenge.
