I had hoped to finish this in time for the contest here but didn't make it. I did finish just in time for the IPMS USA Nationals which the Tidewater chapter I belong to was hosting this year. I entered them in the humor category and won a "Best of" award for the Miscellaneous class. Of course the figures are resin kits. The dog and cat are pvc, with the dog modified and completely repainted. The figure on the shelf is a wargame miniature and the tank and plane are kits. The clear container for the paints is a small storage bin. Almost everything else is scratch built, including the airbrush, compressor, tool box, tray and the tools in it, paint bottles and cans, awards, shelves and carpet molding. I made the boxes by scanning real kits, resizing, printing, cutting out and folding. (Many thanks to my friend, Dan, who lent me a ton of kits for variety) I hope you like them.

Oh the details! I have a diorama planned with the same concept after seeing the diorama of a Gundam assembling a Gundam kit! Really awesome, complete with everything. After seeing this, I will definitely go with that concept! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration.

Can I ask: where'd you get the compressor with airbrush and stuff like tamiya and scissors?

Haha! I wasn't reading the comments below. I guess I found the answer. You should enter this on the diorama section of the contest. You'll win for sure!

Thanks everyone! The compressor was made starting with a cylinder of renfoam (a very dense, hard, tooling foam) and most details added with styrene sheet, hex rod, etc. The cooling fins on the head are just styrene sheet layered together.

That's even more impressive ! I am happy to see that 3D print is not the only way forward to achieve such detailed result. Very well done !
