Right on man!
I'm married with multiple children,some are grown. My wife doesn't care either,at least she doesn't voice it,lol.hell I just bought her a $3,000 refrigerator,and a $2500 stove,and she still can't cook worth a shit,so idk if she has room to complain if I buy a few cars off Craigslist,and a few joes off eBay
Amazing stuff man! although I'd like to see some more interior in the buildings,that far surpasses anything Ive seen before in 1:18! I'm not familiar with "the hoth dio" that others have mentioned tho. I'm assuming its starwars? was never a starwars person tho,and if I remember correctly hoth is an arctic type theme,and I'm not a snow person either being I'm from&live in a subtropical environment I really can't relate.haha.
I'll say it again,WOW! I'll definitely show this thread to my guys at work. there's a slight stigma to grown men buying toys,but I educate people when I can thats its more then a bunch of nerds making sound effects,and playing with toys,there's an art&hobby behind it,and I think this thread portrays that very well. simply impressive.
My wife does not mind about my hobby but there were times when my oldest son was 13 or 14 and was ashamed about having a father which is buying toys for himself. He came over it too. In Brazil model building is completely unusual and most people never would buy used toys but I do not mind. Sometimes I tell others that model building is an old German tradition and than Brazilians normally think that foreigners are not ticking right anyway.
However, this diorama rocks and I can't wait to see pictures of the finished work.
