The Plight of Mountain-Dwelling Explorers

Anyone who's played a Tomb Raider game recognized the sound of a boulder chasing after them and knows that fast thinking is the only thing to save you now. Not only do these boulder crush you if you get anywhere near them, but they roll considerably faster than you do. Luckily, this boulder isn't going anywhere.

In Tomb Raider 2, Lara pilots a plane in an escape from Marco Bartolli's offshore oil rig to the mountains of Tibet, where her aircraft experiences engine failure and crashes in the mountains. Ever the action hero, Lara grabs a parachute and yanks herself out of the plane before it detonates, leaving her stranded in the mountains. Lara's trek leads her through the mountains, and one step closer to stopping Bartolli and getting the Dagger of Xian.

In fulfilling my obligated "at least one Lara per month" quota, I decided to make a diorama. I always liked this level of Tomb Raider 2, and thought that the boulder and spike traps combined would add a needed sense of excitement. Note that the model is pretty small and is really not for beginners :( If people have problems, I'll resize it for everyone, but note that it is doable!

And now for something completely different.





wow !! that is an incredible diorama !!!
