Figured i would post a couple shots of my new shop diorama. Had to hire a couple local rig welders to get this bucket repaired short notice on a Sunday. This 470 sees some serious abuse bailing shot rock.







These guys were pretty cool and Charlie wanted to pose with his work.



Fun little diorama challenge trying to hide the light kit and still get realistic photo angles. Thanks for looking!

Nice, I am a rig welder. Those beds are nice but no place for oxygen and acetylene bottles. If you go to my Face Book page you can see my rig and the rig I built. I do not know how to post pictures on here.

I'll check it out! If I hadn't gotten into pipe welding after being married I'd probably at least be in nodak right now. I have bottles that I was going to put on these trucks but realized they wouldn't fit where I had planned after I mounted the welders.

I'm slowly starting to figure out my camera. I kind of jumped in head first with a dslr without doing a lot of research. I'm learning that auto focus and 1/50 scale gear aren't really compatible lol

Diecast construction equipment getting serviced/repaired on always makes great scenes for photos! Well Done!

Glen,

Hope you don't mind?



Thanks for posting those, Randy. Both very nice rig trucks ha. Is the model version on a 2-1/2 ton military chassis?

Hi HCF, beautiful diorama and the LED welding effect looks fantastic. The Ford F-250 welding trucks are very interesting as well. That workshop of yours is such an amazing and inspiring backdrop.

Where did you get the welder figures?

Thanks so much for sharing, take care and all the best.

I found the welder figures on eBay. They're just o scale welders. The brand is Arttista and they're made from metal.

That looks good. Getting those welding lights to work in a still photo can be challenge, especially hiding all of the wires.

I had to scrap about half the photos I took because of those wires haha. It took a lot longer to set up than I thought it would. I don't really want to drill a hole in my table every time I want to get some welding done so it's a fun challenge.

I'm not too familiar with welding but would it be possible to disguise the effect wires as cables for the welder?
