Previous >>9560634Doll houses and dioramas and the stuff that goes in them
This is cute as all get out. Post more please. I have no mini figs or anything to contribute cas I'm poor.
what's the best template for making mini comics for characters to read/be displayed with?
>>9715218If you're making your own stuff then it's best to take measurements and calculate based on the size of the figures.
Does anyone have some papercraft funiture/props/rooms they'd like to share? I'm getting into papercraft and I'd really like to make some dioramas for my figures. But most of the stuff I find is either behind a paywall or dead links. And no, /po/ is no help either.
>>9717979Contributing with a few /toy/ OC papercrafts I saved over the years.
>>9717979This is papercraft >>9716902
>>9717990Yes, I knoe and it looks good! Now, do you have the pattern files to share? Or were you just stating the obvious?
I have a fairly good table & and chairs you can make with paper craft.Here's the link to download the PDFs and instructions. http://freef5.seesaa.net/article/234694288.htmlThey're all in moonrunes, but there's plenty of pictures to figure out how to build the set.
where does everyone go about getting the scale items for these Dios, I have been looking at dollerstores and craft stores for weeks.
>>9719704Dollar and craft stores, especially Japanese onesGashapon itemsRe-ment items (be warned that Re-ment furniture only works if it comes in its own set, the ones that are in blind boxes are undersized)Trading figuresDoll house furnitureCustom papercraftAccessories that come with other stuffMagnets and keychains
>>9719768>especially Japanese onesAny good online stores?
>>9719774I'm not aware plus shipping wouldn't make it worth itA lot of them have been expanding overseas lately, look for Daiso or Tokyu Hands or Seria or Can Do in your country.
Found this little storge box from a nearby flea market and got inspired to turn it into a little roombox to display my figures. Trying to decide what color I want the floor to be.
>>9728800Fuck, sorry about the sideways pic
Do these miniature furniture things leave stains/paint transfers on the figure? >>9715168 like here, does that sofa stain her butt if you leave her sitting there too long?
>>9730216Depends on the material and dyeDark or brightly coloured clothing certainly stains bodies if left on for too long, but I haven't seen that happen with furtniture before
>>9718682That is really nice and cool. Could you tell me about those tanks? They look great!
>>9732590Thank you.The king tiger is a 1/144 model kit by u-star, and the cv-35 on the desk came with the cu-poche anchovy figure.
>>9733794Thanks homie. Got any more pics of that setup? It's so sweet and aesthetically pleasing, all of it.
And done. It turned out pretty cute. Gonna work on a bigger box next.
>>9736725Sure. I added some posters on the walls
Is 1/12 general alive anymore? Just bought an old dollhouse from a thrift store, and spent WAY more on furniture for it. Had a 1/6 scale dollhouse already, damn sameller scale stuff is easier to find.
>>9715168>>9738300Are you a transbian?
>>9738953>>97389531/12 is being adopted by mass retail action figures but the accessories have always been more limited. 1/6 has a much bigger presence in the collector, historical military and fashion doll markets so their accessories are more varied and available.If 1/12 dollhouses caught on again with parents and younger girls, we'd probably see more mass manufactured playsets and kits.
>>9739011>>973895312th seems to be a very Anglo thing and strongly British at that, with France and Spain having smaller scenes of some level.
>>9717979Something I compiled years back. Tried to source stuff, if anyone's got more to add, I'll be monitoring the thread.
>>9740230https://mega.nz/folder/5wx3RYYC#0OQerQXFeFQzbRJDtmJBeAThe heck, my link got eaten.
>>9740232There's a big variety of things, a lot of /toy/ creations from the good times.
>>9738296Anon, I have some questions.1. That the Bean Gelo M91/30? If it is, does it scale well with figma? The Bean Gelo rifles seem too small for the actual figures in photos I've seen.2. What body is that?3. Are those DamToy jungle boots? Did they plug-n-play with the legs on that body, or did they need modding?
Anyone here use Calico Critters or Lil Woodzeez playsets?
>>9738296Where's that white top from?
>>9741292Not that guy but it's an Azone, I have the same one.
>>97402541. Yes it is, I think it scales alright with figma2. It is the figma swimsuit emily body3. Yes they are, from one of their vietnam guys. On this body they don't actually plug in, they are just held by friction between the sides of the legs and the sides of the boots after removing the ankle joints. It holds them okay, but they do fall off if you get too crazy with handling the figure. And as a sidenote on a picco neemo body they plug in without any modding.>>9741292The sweater is picco neemo, and the belt is from gpslot on ebay
What would be a good container/base to build a little room like this? I guess I could do it in a cardboard box, but isn't there something that would make a better starting point?
>>9741464Thanks for the answers, anon. Think I need to grab one of those 91/30s.
>>9740232>https://mega.nz/folder/5wx3RYYC#0OQerQXFeFQzbRJDtmJBeAOMG Thank you! What kind of paper should I use?
>>9741537There are some ready made roombox kits available online. I think I saw one on Hobbylink Japan but can't find it anymore so it's probaply not made anymore but there's plenty you can find on etsy. You might also want to look for any kind of wooden storage boxes from thrift stores and so on.
>>9741647I don't really have a good answer for that. /po/ probably has some info, but usually I'd just print Card Stock. You could go the extra mile and use thin paper that you glue onto cardboard/plastic if you want something longer lasting though. I think that there should be some simple 'buildings' for kaiju/monster scenes that are also well served by just being something you can quickly put together and then smash in various ways, so cheap paper's good for that.
>>9741647Check out the samples at Kinko's
Figure I'll post it here too, but been setting up a display, here's one floor of it. Going to try and make it a bookcase 'hotel'. Those curious can get the stairs from https://www.target.com/p/dc-comics-batman-batcave-with-exclusive-batman-and-penguin-action-figure/-/A-83351503The bookcases are from Fortnite Agent's Room.
Are miniature dioramas allowed?
>>9751088yes post more
>>9751096you're the boss, boss!
>>9751088>>9751101Very cool, anon!
>>9751109just some of my favorites.
>>9751117Wargame terrain aren't dioramas but they're rad so post them here anyway
>>9751088>>9751109Spooky and Kino as fuck>>9751101>>9751103Cool
Oh man, we had a DnD 2nd book that was about adapting core rules to miniatures/3D and damn I stared at that book for a hundred hours.
>>9751115>>9751344>>9751541>>9752759glad they're appreciated, I know one of the big memes here is THATS A STATUE. They should probably go on /tg/ but /tg/ cares remarkably little about miniatures that aren't space marines and it honestly kind of breaks my 25mm heart.
>>9751088Nice. This looks great. Stupid question but is this 1/28 scale? What brand? I know very little about miniatures.
>>9759722Typically gaming minis like that are around 28mm tall
>>9759722as this anon >>9759984 says, these are all 25-28 mm. 25mm used to be the most common scale, but usually its 28mm now.I only really recognize the skeletal troll on the far left in front of the skelephant, which is currently available from RAFM. The others are probably mostly grenadier and ral partha miniatures, though I only say that because they all look pretty chunky and oldschool. Pretty much every mini company makes skeleton minis, so they might be hard to hunt down. You could ask /awg/ on /tg/, they'd be able to help with a lot of them I'm sure!
Currently Working on a TMNT display for my 03 Turtles and some bad guys. Decided to try a layered build and I am pretty happy with how it came out. Now I just need to finish Collecting the Line Lol
>>9718017Papper? it hold for toy playing
>>9714143ITT: goldmine of ideas, thank you all for sharing!
>>9714143where I can buy good miniatures?
>>9774510Hard question, anon. Scale, nonscale? Theme? Preferred material? Plenty of Etsy/ebay minis to be had in clay for example. Some lines don't really stick to a consistent scale either.
The Re-ment Calbee stuff is great
>>9717979I made this record sleeve for a Cartoon Planet shelf display with the old Toycom figures of Space Ghost, Zorak and Brak.
>>9779595what scale is this?
>>9779595just for miniature Miku plushie i want this whole set
>>9779595Fuck, it's like those kids in the 90s who were obsessed over Barney shit. If you own that you are not mentally stable. It's an invented mascot for a singing program that only got big in Japan because the english version was so unintelligible no one used it(go look up some of the early Vocaloid songs, they are bad). Companies have taken to praying on the mentally ill for profits and these people will only get worse from such pandering. A lot of it will be US otakus who understand 5 Japanese words at most.
>>9779761its fucking accessory crap for dolls you fucking idiot, a lot of rement stuff is for girls who already buy sylvanian families, nendos etc.
>>9779761I think you're the mentally ill one here.
I believe this is the best thread to post this in, but if I wanted to build one of these myself, what’s the best 1/12 fence material? I’ve seen gutter guard but that’s usually only 6” tall so it’d be difficult to make the cage panels seamless AND in scale
>>9780156look up gardening supplies, rodent/pest control, animal cages, and other shit that would use wire fences, meshes, and other shit that could scale down.Whole lotta shit exists that will fit what you want. You just need to look. If it doesn't exist, I'm sure someone on etsy is making it right now.
>>9780208I actually just looked at that cage and realized it has 3 segments which would work for 6” gutter guard, but I will look into gardening stuff. That didn’t even cross my mind
>>9715168>>9714144>>9714575What are these type/brand of figures called? I would like to buy some.
>>97803551/12? There are action figures, dolls, and model kits in those photos, you need to be more specific.
>>9780355The one in the last figure is a figma, Amatsukaze from Kancoe
>>9780355Picco Ex Cute
I’m thinking of getting into dioramas. Anyone know good sites to get a variety of figurines? I’m thinking of a wildfire scene with wildland firefighters but all I can find are fantasy characters, cowboys and indians, and world war soldiers. I can probably mock the firefighters up from something else but I don’t know where to start.
>>9787315What scale? If it's pretty small, you could buy plastic figures and modify/paint them; apoxie is a good material for making modifications and pretty easy to work with. At very small scales like railroad there are probably some firefighter sets you can buy. If you're thinking something bigger like 1/12, you can buy unclothed dolls at that scale and make them firefighter outfits.If you have money to spend you can use something like hero forge, it can give you some okay naturalistic figures if you adjust the posing a lot, if you don't mind the chunky proportions.I think you need to figure out what scale you are using, based on what size you want the diorama to be and what size you are comfortable working with. 1/12 outdoor scenes would quickly get unwieldy. It sounds like you might like a train scale, and if you pick a scale to stick to it means there will be more options for things to buy premade for your diorama rather than building every part from scratch. Train scales also have a lot more outdoors type items compared to dollhouse scales.Here's a quick rundown on train set scales: https://www.trainsetsonly.com/choose-a-scale.htmlHope it helps
>>9787315>>9788126For example, there is a set of wildfire fighters on that very site at HO scale (1/87). You can purchase trees and plants at that scale and strip and paint them to make the burnt forest look. Keep in mind these would be incredibly small, but it means you can create larger scenes overall and take less space.
>>9788135That would be perfect! I am envisioning a contrast between their yellow uniforms and the black of a burned out area. Like you said, I can make a larger scene (or at least make it look that way) to really give the scale of a partially burned forest. Thanks for the help!
Any papercraft stuff for dioramas?
>>9803963>1GB of dolphin pornThanks... I guess.
>>9799621There's a bunch of stuff in the previous thread, check the archive.
>>9803992I aim to provide only the finest whalecum for your gluing needs.But yeah, the owner of that mega here, I keep it updated so if anyone's got stuff they want in it, post away here or I can make a thread in /po/
>>9810522I say just make a thread on /po/ and then link it there whenever we have a diorama thread like this one. /Toy/ is a bit slow, but not as slow as /po/ with threads on there that are years old. Plus, you may get some helpful /po/sters dropping some relevant content into the thread.
>>9746187Are those stairs from The Batman? Do you have the emo Bruce?
>>9812682I do indeed, somewhere. Also, for those interested, Target's got the 'playset' for the stairs on sale for 20 bucks.
>>>/po/605122The diorama/accessories Papercraft thread
I know ya all missed out on the japanese reprint run couple years ago, but I figured it's still relevant.
>>9821315How big are these?
>>98219351/13, so figma girls, Assault Lilies and five inch figures should be a good fit, though there could be issues with animu heads and hair pieces.As for the 12th scale plamo girls, you might be able to stuff the lolis inside that cage.
Got a kind of doll house thing, I'll see if I can get some pics of it tomorrow. It's a country store.
anyone done anything recently?
>>9827496This is the 'country store'. Haven't done much with it yet. Probably won't be able to make the time for a while to work on it. Have to unpack a lot to fill it up and not sure how far I'll go with it... like wallpaper/paint, flooring, probably could use a sales counter, etc...
>>9830071What is the name of the police figure?
>>9830111Kelly, she is a Daibadi/Polynian
>>9719768Is the Petit Sample series good?
>>9830688It's great but keep in mind that furniture in the blind packs are absolutely not 1/12. The furniture in the big furniture sets is 1/10-1/12, but the ones in the blind packs are closer to 1/16-1/18.
>>9831251other anon here, i'm retarded and i have no idea what do you mean by blind packsi guess the one from picture i posted is not the blind pack because they show all the stuff innit
>>9831811Those come in a sealed case of individually boxed sets, one of each. The furniture (at least the bench and bed) isn't gonna scale with 1:12 figures, but some of the smaller items may.
>>9831811Those are sold in blind boxes. You get a random one of the stuff in the picture. You can buy the whole set, but they're meant to be sold in stores as blind boxes at $7 or so each.It's the big sets like pic, one item on its own priced at 3000-5000, that come with large scaled furniture.The furniture in blind boxes is small because they literally wouldn't fit otherwise.
>>9831811That pic is stuff on the left here. It's a display carton with eight blind packs. In stores they're sold individually, but most online stores will only sell you the whole carton, which will give you the whole set.Pic in this >>9832863 is a set on the right. Just one box with everything shown on it.
>>9832868>>9831811The thing about the furniture in blind boxes is that they have to physically fit into the boxes. The boxes are very small.The tables in this pic are from sets like >>9832863 and you can see how they compare to a blind box.
Someone recently gave me a Little Armory Shooting Range Booth Kit. After shoddily putting it together I realized I still had a table set disassembled. Had some fun putting them to use right away.>>9830071Without additional modification it already looks like an old time western shop or saloon. Some fun to be had with roomboxes.
>>9836999looks great! inverse satan
>>9751117That does look cool
>>9836999It does have that old timey/wild western shop feel to it already, but needs some work. Was going to make something like pic related, but some hybrid of the 2 sound fun. Saw this pic here a while ago.
Any printable backdrop?
>>9850337>Grab any generic wallpaper of a location>Print at full page color settings>????>PROFIT!!!
>>9850337There are a couple in the Mega.
>>9811031Did somebody do this yet?
Where can I find 1:4 scale stuff for dioramas. I'm getting tired of building stuff I need myself
