Hi All,

I started playing my old PC and XBOX Fallout games again and thought that I would make a little diorama of a Vault Dweller, his not any paticular character from any of the games and I made him come from Vault 111.

RECIPE

Vault Dweller/equipment - The main torso is from a GI Joe Wild Bill figure the one that came from the comic two pack. the legs are from a GI Joe Cobra Commander and the boots are from GI Joe figure from Rise of Cobra. The upper arms are from a KOTCS Indy figure and the right lower arm is from TOD Indy.

The Lower left arm (PIPBOY) is from a SW 4-LOM figure and the left hand is from a TOD Indy, I used a 7" Star Trek Enterprise communicator to make the screen and bottom part of the PIPBOY. The straps are made from strips of pleather and the buckle on the chest is from a Indy belt and the shoulder armour is from a SW IG-88 figure.

The pouches and water bottle are from a KOTCS Russian soldier and the holster is from a SW Quinlan Voss figure and was attached to some pleather, the pistol is from a GI Joe figure and the rifle is from a WW2 Forces of Valor American GI.

Base - The base is a SW 1/6 Sideshow base, I used high density foam to make the road this foam hasn't had the sealer put onto it like the blue foam you get so it was ideal for the making of the road. I cut the foam up and then just pulled sections off here and there to get the look I wanted and then attached it to the base.

The ground work was built up using modellers clay and then dirt with kitty litter and pieces of twig were ground up and mixed up and added to the base,. The skulls are from the Pitfall Indiana Jones playset and the small tufts of grass are from Army Painter and are called wasteland tufts, the dead trees were pulled off a small bush in a pot plant.

The billboard I got off the net and glued it to thin cereal box cardboard and once dry I cut of about a 1/4 of it and started to scrap at the picture until I got the worn look I wanted, I then made the main structure using plasticard. I gave it a good weathering using pastels and ageing powder.

Very nice work!

I've just started playing Fallout 3 a couple of months ago... great game! I took a break for GTA V but am eager to get back to clearing the wastelands.

Cheers Mate and I started back with an older character in Fallout 3 and forgot how much fun it is.

Man, that looks great! Really nice work, and a superb combination of parts.
The sculpt sort of reminds me of a mix between David Duchovny and Andrew Lincoln.
Lovely work on the figure, and the base as well.
