There has been lots of buzz on my facebook page about the Ghostbusters Diorama and I have finally had the chance to get started on it. As most of you know by now I do lots of research. And that doesn't mean just watching the movies over and over , hehe. Lots of scouting online forums and fan groups of the movie. I decided to make the Ecto1-A in front of the Ghostbusters Firehouse. One of the problems a came upon in my research was the color of the firehouse door. Now in the movie it's red when they buy the building, but then when they renovate the door and even the brick is painted a matte black. Now I'm not sure why they did this. In my mind the firehouse door has always been red. Why? No clue, but what I noticed in the forums is that I was not alone.
So I decided to take some artistic liberty with this one and I will make the fire house structure based on the movie but the colors based on other information.
Another difference with this one is I started by weathering and detailing the car. Normally I do this at the end, but what can I say I was inspired.
