It was a fun project. I made it for my son who is a huge fan of the movie.

I have the Hunter Killer tank (which is massive in 1/32) and a set of the chromed T-800 figures to do another diorama with down the road. Want to do the resistance truck attacking it so have to find a Meng 1/35 (close enough) pickup and convert the AA gun to a plasma cannon.

Looks like a fun project.  Iconic scene from the movie - Sarah Conner's nightmare if I recall.  Look forward to your next project, though those Meng technicals seem hard to find.

Thanks,

John

Yes, it is the opening scene from the movie right after Sarah's nightmare. Cuts to the T-800s  coming through the playground then the Resistance Technicals shooting down an aerial HK and them blowing up a tank with a sticky mine. I watched that sequence about 100 times when doing the first diorama so it is burned into my brain now. 

This one will be years down the road so I can wait for them to rerelease the truck. If not I do have the Meng basic truck kit that I could scratch a plasma cannon for but it is already earmarked for another project so I would need to determine priorities

I loved that scene in the movie!

But it's funny how the future never came.  Skynet didn't take over in the 1990s, and playground equipment went extinct.  How will children learn about the effects of gravity?  So we really are doomed, and machines will take over the Earth...

We were at a local beach last summer and there was an old school playground that was almost identical to one in the movie (pre blast) that is still fully intact and operating right down to the spinner and steel seesaws. I remember playing on the same equipment in the same spot when a kid in the early 60s and it looks no different now. It must be one of the very last survivors.

Yes, and anyone who is not wearing SPF 2 million is going to have a really bad day!!!

Probably couldn't send kids to an old-school playground these days without encasing them in bubble wrap and making them wear a helmet, safety glasses, and an N95 mask.

I'm telling ya, nothing teaches a kid about playground safety like having a fall through the insides of a rocket shaped jungle gym!  At a tender age of 5, I found out what getting your wind knocked out felt like.  When Sarah Connor exploded in the dream, THAT is what is was like.  It was the first time I felt so much pain that I wanted to just die.

If I had done a Terminator playground diorama, I'd have definitely included a small child's skeleton in a twisted rocket ship jungle gym, upside down and face planted firmly in the blackened soil!

Oh, and maybe the remains of a personal injury lawyer nearby, with a scorched breifcase and the ashes of innumerable legal documents fluttering in the wind.

I'd hate to find out that Real G was supposed to be the saviour of mankind but was killed in a bizarre playground accident so John Conner had to furfill the role instead.... 

Those skellies look great Tcoat, they'd really fit the bill.
