Dio With Abrams Tank

A while back I mentioned wanting to build a diorama for my Abrams, I’ve finally done it!

To start I used a thin piece of plywood for the base.  Next I spread a layer of clear drying school glue down on the plywood base. Then I sprinkled sand over the top of the glue.  To fix the sand in place firmly, I mixed water and school glue in a spray bottle and then soaked the sand with the mixture.  Once the sand was dry I figured out the placement of the rocks and the tank and then glued them down.

The barbed wire fence and the spilled oil drum, were last minute details that I decided to add because it just didn’t look right with only a tank and a few rocks!
