Another element of the scenery : the plants ! The New Mombasa is a city with a bit of greenery, so let's give it credit.

Like always, I drew the plans on AutoCAD then I started the laser cutting in 3mm MDF.

Then I start the assembly and gluing.

I cover everything with expanded PVC.

Just stunned at the intricacy. I seriously believe all of your dioramas need to be sent to eh Halo Museum up at 343. You have got to share this with @misplacedyank, @grimbrotherone, @343postums on Twitter. Deserves to be seen in the Community Spotlight and Updates!

This is very inspiring, I love a good diorama, and this is the best halo one i've seen! Any chance we can get a pic of everything you've done so far? a lot of the old pics in page 17 and before are broken :(

It is very kind of you ! I will be sharing my work with them shortly then, thanks for the advice ;)

I really learned a lot just by watching this steadily grow....
I'm glad to hear it and to know that what I'm doing can help other people do the same :)

Thanks a lot !!! Soon ! As soon as I have finished this part, there will be pictures of the whole because 25% will be finished ;)




The police car of the NMPD is finally finished ! It took a lot of work from me but it was worth it, I'm happy with the result !
