Thanks God my work no longer requires me to keep travelling abroad. Now it's time to spend some money and have fun on a special diorama: an exquisite showroom. Hope you enjoy this one and you are  :welcome: to follow me.

I'm making it inside my cabinet....

I started putting a base of a 1 mm polystyrene sheet

I bought some nice hardware.....


(The white framed light will be for my second diorama I will start right after I finish this one)

There's an issue with the Postimage hosting, they seem to have changed from "postimg.org" to "postimg.cc". That's why the images are not showing.

I fixed the links by changing the ".org" to ".cc" portion and managed to access the images.

I'm not going to repost them all because I think that he may want to do that hinself, but here's the links, see if they load for you:
