I try and design the builds using items that you can easily find and purchase at your local hobby and dollar stores. However, some maybe harder to find in your area – like the glossy vinyl for example – so I have placed some Amazon links to help you out below…
Clicking on the links and shopping online also allows you to encourage me and show your support for the work I do on my website and YouTube Channel. Not just for this specific build but for future diorama tutorials as well. I receive a small percentage of the sale which I then use to re-supplying my own art supplies construction materials. Thank you for your generosity and have fun with your project, email me photos when you have completed your diorama. Frank.
Here is a look at “bonus” materials I store in bulk in my own workshop
If you make or plan to make many many dioramas, It’s always a good idea to keep a good bulk quantity of the most basic materials (see link below to warp to the Basic Supplies page).
But then, as you get more involved in your hobby, the fun really begins when you discover cool fun “bonus” materials that can really make a difference for you in your construction. Remember, these are not necessarily 100% needed to build, but if you become serious in making many constructions, I found for myself, it was worth getting them.
Below is a list of what I own in my personal workshop (some with extra pricing options based on your needs) and use on a regular basis. If you are not sure what it does or if you think you really need it, you can always email me to ask me any question you have at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you don’t already own these, you can Click on the links below to get more details on what they are and if you think you want to purchase them. Any purchases from my Amazon links give me a small percentage of the sale and help me refill my own workshop bins for future diorama construction and instructions for you guys and girls. Thank you ahead of time for your encouragement and support. I am truly grateful to all of you. Frank.
