This is my display for my So-cal vehicles and storage for my other cars and trucks on the roof. I have run out of room were I keep my collection so this was an option to store my overflow of diecast autos. The overhead lighting is an LED undercabinet light from Ikea that is dimmable with the remote. This will be made larger and have added weather effects to look more realistic with a rebuild this spring.

Thanks for the kind words guys and I'm very sorry about responding so late. To be honest I have had some health issues and then completely forgot about this post I am hoping to rebuild this in the near future but I will have to see how things go from here.

The result is great for your first diorama. To make it look even more realistic, I would add a few signs of use and dirt.

Mate there's nothing feeble about that dio. And you have a couple of accessories there that can be hard to find here in Oz. Nice work.
