When Hasbro released the Temple of Doom figures it was a very easy choice for me to make this dio, It was the prfect way to display these fantastic looking figures. As always when the figures and dio were built I used Vallejo and Games Workshop paints.
When I started this project I didn't want to just have nothing at the bottom of the cliff, So with this in mind a decided to have a much smaller version of the crocs having a feast at the bottom.
1: Figures - Indy and Mola Ram are both from Hasbro, they were put into the postures I liked then the joints were superglued to stop movement and then they were painted.
2: Base - The base is made from balsa wood and cardboard, the stone cliff face I got from the local hobby shop, it's 1/72 scale it comes in sheets of about 20cm x 15cm and was a light grey colour. I painted it various browns and sands to get the desired look.
The wooden/rope bridge is made from balsa wood and model sail boat rope, Once all the rope was added and tied to the balsa foot holds it was then covered in woodglue and then let dry.
Once dry it was painted dark browns and light browns to get the effect you see.
The base were the crocs are is made using fine sand and kitty litter for the larger rocks and the crocs are pieces of balso wood carved and sanded to the desired shape.
It was then painted and woodland scenics Realistic water added for the river.
