7" Indiana Jones 'University Dig' Custom Diorama By HembleCreations

"Hi All,
First build for 2023 and hopefully many more to come.
I have a few of the old Disney 7" Indy figures so I decided to start using them in dioramas. This one depicts Indy on an actual paid dig by the university.
Indiana Jones 7" scale.
Figure - is from Disney and is 7" in scale and I got him into a pose I liked and glued and covered the joints and painted and weathered him using Vallejo Paints.
Diorama - the main part of the base was built using foam board and then I used high density foam and cut out all the individual stones and glued them into place. Once the stones were all dry I then used watered down Spak Filla and dapped it over the stones to give them a more realistic look.
The soil/dirt was done using a mix of Spak Filla/sand/dirt and then applied it the areas and once dry I gave it a wash of Vallejo's Chocolate Brown and the vegetation is grass tuft and shrubs from Army Painter.
The relics/pots/skulls I got off Thingiverse and I resized them from 28mm to 7" scale using my 3D printer. The table/crate/lowering hoist are made from balsa wood and the rope is just some string I have had in my parts box.
The flames/torches/ where made using balsa wood and Woodland scenics Water Effects and the lantern was made using scraps from the parts box and I then added LED's to them.
