VooDoo is nearing an open date and we had a Fire Inspection. As a commercial venue, they wanted an Exit sign over the new Stage Door, and Fire Alarm Pulls. Done and Done. ;-)

Inspection... YML4MdO

Inspection... Eqqi52d

Inspection... IRSnO6j

Some may not agree, but I feel it's the details that add depth to a diorama, after all, I'm not exactly assembling 'Barbie's Dream House' for my Daughter... ;-)

The keypad and fire alarm are fantastic! They look 3-D! Are they?

Just paper on thin cardboard...  Remember camera's see in 2D, so it's all part of the magic of illusion... ;-)

Exit signs are, paper on foam core with a thin wooden frame.

Love it that you created a one sentence "backstory" for the new additions!

Luckily the Fire Dept. didn't ask for sprinklers to be installed.....

Already in the space when we renovated, though in the diorama, if I were to do a ceiling, it would be a flat black grid to support some spotlights for Stage lighting. I don't think anyone would look at the ceiling, unless they sample too much of 'Major Mike's Atomic Ale', in which case, they're unlikely to see that level of detail. As a commercial space, the ceiling in VooDoo would be painted flat black, so largely unnoticed. I had considered doing a removable ceiling with scale lighting and HVAC, but I prefer the open ceiling for better viewing in a 1:1 world.

Indeed, but I have been thinking of a removable grid or ceiling...
