\r\n Diorama Build\r\n

\r\n Hey, so i have settled on an are for a large dio build to feature my Joes. I have ideas and I am struggled getting the image i have onto paper in a way that it makes sense. So I need some help.
\n
\nMy issue is the dio landscape to showcase what I have. I am thinking of a MASS device themed layout. I will have a water area, volcano area, and a snow area. The issue is fitting the playsets I want to be featured within that theme. Space isnt really an issue...yet.
\n
\nI have a Flagg, 2 hydrofoils, whale and TBP for the water area. Thats easy.
\n
\nBut I want to showcase a HQ and TD where to I put them in one continuous layout.
\n
\nThe layout format its both area 1 3feet x7feet area 2 is 4 feet x8 feet area 3 3 feet x7 feet ( the Flagg fits in all of the areas. )
\n
\nIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
\nIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII2IIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIII
\nIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
\nIIII1IIIII........................................ ..........IIIIII3IIIII
\nIIII1IIIII........................................ ..........IIIIII3IIIII
\nIIII1IIIII........................................ ..........IIIIII3IIIII
\nIIII1IIIII........................................ ..........IIIIII3IIIII
\nIIII1IIIII........................................ ..........IIIIII3IIIII
\nIIII1IIIII........................................ ..........IIIIII3IIIII
\n
\n
\n
\nEDIT ignore the .... thats just empty space
\nYes I realize its a massive area. the surface is just customs made tables.
\n
\n
\nWhat I have imagined is Area 1 Snow with a volcano and tunnel at the base that will allow a Red Element dio and a Yellow Element (meteorite dio). That will include all of my snow featured vehicles ie snow wolf, snow mobile, hiss tanks
\n
\nUse area 3 for the heavy water element. PLace Flagg/hydrofoils/whale/TBP etc
\n
\nI was going to use area 2 for HQ with front directed at the snow with a jungle in the back leading to the TD and the TD backing up to the water on a cliff (Cobra Island style)
\n
\nThat is the current plan. So I am wondering:
\n
\nHow can I weave into this design
\n1) a Dr Mindbender lab dio - my thought perhaps by having the TD on a hill with a cutout section under the TD featuring the lab and the Serpentor creation. WILL THIS LOOK GOOD OR AWKWARD?
\n2) Dreadnoks swamp dio-' + '-' + '-or Palace of Doom dio jungle theme between the HQ and TD?
\n
\n
\nI am trying to maintain all of the dios on the same surface without building them under the tables. ( i just have an issue with building a swamp dio under the table with snow or water theme above it.
\n
\n
\nany thoughts?
\n
\n
\nFYI this is what my image what it will result in depends on how I much time it will take to learn how to build the dio landscape. THIS IS MY First attempt at a dio.
\n
\n
\nAND thanks if you made it threw this post.\r\n

    \r\n Sounds cool. Do the Mindbender lab. He always had a lab in the comics and cartoon. Keep showing pics of your progress.\r\n
