BookNook Diorama - Bladerunner Theme
« on: December 14, 2020, 07:20:11 PM »
Booknooks are becoming a big thing. There are some wonderful examples out there. Scenes like Diagon Alley from Harry Potter are popular, library themes and some rather excellent Dungeon scenes.

Simply it is a small diorama that fits on a bookshelf, this is the link that got me interested
https://www.boredpanda.com/book-nook-shelf-inserts/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=organic

I decided to try my arm to see how it went. The brief was to try a Bladerunner inspired theme.
First up it is way more joinery then I normally do, but it is only a box, not a full set of cupboards.

But at least you can scale back the detail a bit and use common materials like Cardboard
Building facade 1 with some hacked up wire mesh for fire escapes.

A "here's one I prepared earlier" a Base I used, co-incidently to display a 1/48 Bladerunner Spinner kit


Lick 'o' paint

3d Print a couple of 1/72ish Vending Machines and a Bladerunner 2079 Car, Thanks Thingiverse !



Some rather agricultural wiring, but you are not going to see it anyway

One side of the scene. The backdrop is just a screen grab printed off.


Test fit.. I have since redone a couple of LED lights as the scene was a bit too dark. It is still too dark, but sort of works.


Almost there hopefully finish it of in the next day or so as it will be a Christmas Gift for a Bladerunner Fan.
Not nearly as good as the one on the boredpanda site, but for a first go at this it has been a steep learning curve on
lighting something like this.

Very innovative and inspiring!  I like it and it definitely make the ordinary bookshelf much more useful.

Booknooks are becoming a big thing...

Having never heard of it, mean that I'm even further out the loop than I'd realized  :-[

But this is a very cool concept! Dioramas that, be design, fit on your shelves  ;D  And I love your Bladerunner theme  :smiley:

Interesting concept and a very nice, IMHO, execution with the Blade Runner theme.

Thanks Team.

It was a fun build
The Spinner Car under some rough paint.


Some pix of a test "fit for purpose" fitting into a bookshelf. Still to be fully glued down and the final paint of the box completed at this stage, but after that happened, it did not change at all.



As far as dimensions, the images tell the story but 250mm x 100mm x 200mm (H x W x D)
