Your Two Cents: Mini-Dioramas

Overall Rating       Well worth getting.
Comments I have built the Day the Earth Stood Still diorama, and have in hand the Earth vs. the Flying Saucers. While the kits are small, they are of very high quality; the resin work is excellent. The service from Skyhook is also excellent; I got them within 2-3 working days from when I hit the Pay-Pal button.

I find that it is a lot of fun and somewhat therapeutic to occasionally build a kit that is small, goes together fast, is fun, and maybe even a bit silly. The Hasagawa "Egg Planes" and Testor's "Weird-Ohs" for instance. These kits from Skyhook are in that category. I suppose those with AMS could super detail even these small dioramas, but why? With a fairly small amount of time and effort you can have a suprisingly good looking diorama that doesn’t use up a lot of your shelf space. I plan on building all of them.
