This week's TNI Cool Custom is of a 7" Professor Jones & Classroom Diorama
Here is how Hemble describes the making of it:
In keeping up with the 7" Indiana Jones diorama's I naturally thought that the class room would be a great addition to my collection, The diorama isn't 100% accurate I added parts from ROTLA such as the chalk board and other items and the rest of the items were added to suite my taste.As always once the diorama was completed I used Vallejo, Repaer and GW paints to paint and drybrushed them to the desired look.

1: Figure - The figure is agaian the Disney figure, I replaced his jacket with a suit jacket from a Angel Series figure. I cut and sanded down his collar and used cloth to make a new collar, tie and vest jacket. The chain is to show tha he has an old waist coat and the watch and the glasses are pieces of plasticard tubing and strips cut and snaded down to size.
2: Base - The base and bench were made using balsa wood and foamcore sheets, once cut all parts were then sanded and glued in place.
3: Artifacts - The artifacts are a mix of LOTR items, Star Trek items, Metal Figures from a gum ball machine, 1/72 scale figures and scratch made items. The maps and books were taken from the net and re-sized and printed off, the Gold Idol drwaings were drawn free hand as was the chalk board drawings.
