    This 3D print item, from eBay seller "elmothespaceman", was irresistable at the low price and high detail, and as a fan of the Dukes of Hazzard, I had to add a whiskey still to my assortment of 1/64 diorama items.

    I hit it with several light coats of Krylon flat black, and let it dry for 4 hours.

    As seen here, I aged the container that the copper coils rest in, detailed the kettle and made it look like aged, tarnished copper, detailed the brick support structure/firepit for the still, detailed and weathered the "thump keg" in the center, detailed the spigot that the jugs are filled from, and detailed the line from the "thump keg" into the copper condenser line coils.

    Eventually I will work this into a proper diorama setting.

    I'm broke, but still, I feel like that.

      Thanks! I think I did a good job on painting, detailing & weathering it.

      Compare to this photo that I used as a guideline

        I'll agree, yours hasn't gone scuzzy yet though. (not a complaint, a compliment)

            Just some good ole boys making a little bit of beverage for themselves. During my time in the Ozarks knew many of those good ole boys - each one had his own still and secrets of how he made his hooch. Thinking some of that stuff could be used for hand sanitizing these days as well as antifreeze! Your still looks very realistic- will enjoy seeing it when you get it placed on your planned diorama.

                Thats Cool,
                I would love to have one for my dio and some of the other stuff that he has as well , ( US$30.50 Postage to Aus is a killer though )
                Looking forward to seeing your dio get started

                I found these 2 shopkins toys that I thought had potential for a dio

                Before and after ( should have trimmed the sides etc )

                  Definitely serviceable items that would be great in a junkyard or shop diorama as stored junk

                        I wish I could have found that a few years ago for a shot I wanted to take. I ended up making my own.

                          That's really nice, ingenious use of scrap materials to make it.

                          I work at a place that has a warehouse full of that kind of stuff.
