Rebadging one of the forums?
We've had a suggestion to better utilize one or more of the dormant forums here at the Diecast Zone. If we did, what would you like to see? One suggestion was a board for modeling tips and how-tos. Another might be dioramas. What are your ideas?
Both ideas of dioramas and modeling tips would be a welcome addition. If I had to chose one it would be dioramas.
If I had to choose one it would be modelling tips (and dioramas). But then the "Modelling" forum was my suggestion so I'm obviously biased!
Both would be excellent but if we're constrained to just one, I'll cast my vote for dioramas - thank you John
Maybe there's no need to choose between one or the other. I don't see any good reason why posts relating to model "enhancements", minor or major conversion projects ("chops"), scratchbuilts or semi-scratchbuilts, dioramas and any other kinds of model-related handiwork couldn't live happily together in one forum, for people who want to display their efforts or offer hints and tips, and those who simply want to view them and maybe pick up some ideas or get inspired to try their hand.
Maybe it could be called "All My Own Work"?
@graeme-ogg I like the way you framed this. Modeling and dioramas are both built around one’s taste and imagination. It could be called “Made by Me”.
My choice would be modeling tips and how-to. Dioramas would be a separate forum.
I favor dioramas but can see that both might be possible on one forum.
We could also have a Real Car Forum, but perhaps the Lounge takes care of 1:1 scale already
I do like the Chopped or Diorama'ed idea as well!
