After getting my complete set of TMNT classic collection, i decided to start my adventure as a diorama maker and beginner acba shooter. I wanted to create a sewer diorama to sit in my shelf. So many ideas came to plan and this is what i came up with.

The base of this thick insulation foam from home depot. I thought i could get a watery reflective detail using the foil side of the foam board. I was wrong. HAHA. After measuring how large i wanted to have the platforms in relative to the figures i decided on the layout.

The back of the diorama is tile back splash bought at Home Depot. The murky water was from different layers of clear silicone caulk mixed with different layers of paints; black/green/brown.

The drainage pipe was from a 3.5 inch shower drain, painted and added some diorama moss bought at Michael's.

I added a few TMNT type details after it was done. Poster was printed and dipped in coffee for the weathered look. Same idea was applied to pizza box and newspaper. Used test tubes with caps for the ooze containers.

For a while i was done, but i always felt a few things were missing. While walking through Michael's on night with the wife and kid i spotted Halloween lights in all orange and i realized i can use those as lights for my sewer!! GOTTA LOVE CHEAP SUPPLIES.

Lastly added 2 pipes on the wall made from corrugated wire loom.

HOPE YOU GUYS ENJOY!!!
