One evening in New Mexico
Posted by jackball74 on Friday, January 27, 2017 11:55 AM

USAAF personnel escort a downed foreign pilot through Roswell Army Air Field, July of 1947.

Dreamt this up after having some leftover re-cast Marx soldiers and finding an old neon-yellow space figure (that eventually wound up with a glob of clay pushed onto his head).

Good idea using the playset figures. Works for something like this because the scale of the figures dont have to match that of the alien.

I saw another diorama that used some modified cowboy playset figures fighting a dinosaur. Looked really nice.

I wish I could remember the name of the book where the author showed how to modify playset figures for use in dioramas. It involved cutting off heads, arms, legs, weapons, etdc and switching or repositioning them.
