The Godzilla City Diorama

 

Stephen has made a whole lot of great dioramas for action figures. You can check them out right here: Stephen's Action Figure Dioramas

This is a complex city scene diorama that depicts Godzilla running amuck. This diorama shows how versatile insulating foam (XPS) is.

Note from Will: XPS is short for Extruded Polystyrene Foam. I have more about this type of foam and other types right here: Working With Foam

Stephen Tells us what he used to make this diorama:

  • Insulation foam board for everything except a couple buildings, which came from a 2014 Movie Godzilla toy set
  • Rubble is a mixture of vase filler and other elements
  • led mini string lights between the building connected to battery packs on the back of the tallest building
  • Cotton pulled and strectched for fiery smoke effect
  • Adhesive terrain sheet for grass
  • Additional terrain sprinkled in

Hot wire foam cutterHot Wire Foam Cutter

(This is the exact one that Will uses) The Hot Wire Foam Cutter has adjustable collars allowing for clean, accurate cuts in foam. Woodland Scenics recommends using only on SubTerrain white foam which emits no toxic fumes. Use only special nichrome replacement wire. The throat of the Hot Wire Foam Cutter is 4.5" wide by 5.5" deep. Input: 120VAC and Output: 9VAC, 1300mA.
