So here is WIP gallery on my contest entry.
I hope staff will add ability to add comments under each picture to add fully commented WIP (it's mostly necessary for WIP articles where hard to understand what is on a picture).

Full article with comments and Posters is still in Russian and can be fund here: https://myanimeshelf.com/blog/Kapushonshik/499731
I hope I will find time to translate it into english in near future.

Hope you like it ^_________^

I keep on referring to your tutorial. Just notice something. Do you know how to sculpt? That would be amazing!

Great to hear! Thanks. regarding to your question - yes. I know how to sculpt. and in nearest future there will be my first attempts to create my first original Garage-kit.

Wouldn't it be easier to just sculpt the pieces you 3d-printed. I do a bit of sculpting myself and though I envy you for having a 3d printer, I thought it takes less than an hour or two vs. printing the pieces in hours and hours. 3d printing works for what you're trying to achieve in regards to garage kit making. Dannychoo has used the delta printers for his hi-res articulated dolls and I see from E2046 WonFes offerings this year, there are 3D models. I reckon they are working files for printing, then mold them to create castings. That's just my theory though. You can definitely speed things up with 3d stuff like creating many poses for one character vs. making masters from scratch traditionally. Best regards on your garage kit making!

Regarding to your question: Simple straight geometry models (like railroad here) is much faster and easier to print than to sculpt manually. And you dont't need to spend hours and hours to print. Such 3d-model is very easy to create and they are not big sod they were printed in about 40min. In result we had perfect shape prints which is not easy to achieve manually. So we are not planning to use 3D-printing in making figure masters. My printer is not precise enough for this and to finish printed model (with complex shape) you need to spend hours and hours to achieve good surface. So we will sculpt figures manually and use 3D only for prototyping (when we can make rough print to see is it fits or we need to change size) and printing parts requiring simple geometry and perfect symmetry. For example when we made Vera http://www.e2046.com/gallery/view/16333 It was very hard to make precise 3d_model of nazi sword but result became much better than all our attempts creating it manually. But her "pilotka" (soviet sidecap) is made manually because it's much faster to make better results just sculpting it by hands than make model and then fight with bad surface for hours. So it's all depends on type of model and purpose. 3D-printer is just a tool like any other tools.

Just thought using a straight knife and pasta machine would be much easier for the railroad tracks especially with the lighting, you wouldn't see the uniformity and crispness of the lines anyway. Although, it would probably take as much time to do if you have polymer rather than air dry clay. :D I couldn't see the link you gave. It's probably been moved. By the way i forgot to tell you: WONDERFUL tutorial! Quite helpful. Here's hoping I can participate next year's diorama.

Thank you very much! We are happy to be helpful! The link is working (comments just don't make them clickable) - it leads to my gallery with soviet soldier girl. and there is a WIP for that project: http://www.e2046.com/gallery/view/16399
Hope you will be able to participate in Diorama next year!

Saw that WIP for Vera. Didn't know you use polymer clay. Great job on that one, too!

Glad to like it, my friend! I will look forward to see your WIP ^_____^
Blue light is a UV blacklight strip. I had to buy 5m of it for one of our previous project - "Hatsune Miku - Virtual World is mine" http://www.e2046.com/gallery/view/14592. You can see te UV in WIP to it on the last slide: http://www.e2046.com/wip/view/961 Than time I used only 1m of it for Miku so there was 4m remain and I used it to light up the scene of this Diorama. Which actually was very challenging. Mostly because UV is much less intensive than orange light from the stone lamp on the other side. And I had to make a lot of tests finding perfect light balance of this blue/orange changing the position of light on both sides. It's much easier to make it in Photoshop but because of restriction using it I had to light up the scene perfectly. Mostly I really like the result.
