We all have little tricks for making our diorama's for me I use a lot of poster board, foam board and sticky printable labels. I also not too long ago found some very interesting pre made mats that come in grass and dessert sand. They also have a road kit that will make parking areas, striping, sidewalks, etc..
A company called Woodland Scenics offers these kits and I found the mats at HobbyTown USA and just found the road kit.
Below is one of the grass mats that I have purchased and they come in different sizes from 12.5 inches by 14 1/8 inches all the way up to 50 inches by 100 inches.

Ok I found some pages that have signs, printable background buildings for card stock and some other useful stuff so I am going to start a thread that we all can post this information on . If you have found a good sight that offers supplies, signs, and anything useful for making diorama's post it here.
One board that I belong too has a lot of good items, and one of them is printable background buildings and signs.
Here is just part of what they offer.
and here is the link to the thread of the signs and billboards. There are six pages alone of signs and billboards.
Hey all I found a few things from a member that we all know and love. Stangfreak and I own a few of the diorama garage pieces that he makes. They are all great in detail. Just a note be ready to paint them as they come unpainted.
Steve has his own Ebay store and he also sells items through his website.
Ok yesterday the girlfriend told me to take the car to work since I now have my drivers license and I did. At lunch time I decided heck with sitting around the property and ran over to HobbyTown USA which is about a mile from where I work at.
I picked up some more desert mats and found these cool pre-made wall pieces for my juck yard. They come in HO and N Scale and have several different styles.
Take a minute and check them out at the link below.
Hey guys and gals I found a site that is helping me make my Junk Yard office building. I finally decided to make a Quonset Hut for the office and I found a PDF file that talks about making one. So here is the link to it.
Since I have been off work I have been spending time looking for Paperstock models to make buildings out of. Here is one that I found and bought. It is a white castles hamburger stand. I am currently working on cutting it all out and putting it together. If you want the model let me know and I will send the pdf file to you. I converted it to JPG since that for me is easier to work with especially if I want to edit part of the model.
There is a very nice and free site that lets you convert PDF to JPG which is what I use to do this. Also I want to add that credit goes to the original designer of this model.
I see alot of great stuff to put a Dio together :Thumbs up:
I guess that is our next project Dan.... Teaching you all over again how to use publisher.... Well at least we have the remote assistance down now...I find it a lot easier to show you by visuals than trying to explain on the phone how to do it. I would think you agree...
