From our Readers – Victor Ortiz’s 1/43 and 1/12 scale dioramas

Victor Ortiz is one of our readers from Mexico. He have been building scale models and dioramas for almost all his life and has an extensive model car collection.

He recently shared some of his work with us. As he builds in many different scales You’ll find from 1/8 scale highly detailed cars to 1/43 dioramas, also highly detailed. There is so much great stuff to share that it’s just not possible to write only one post about him and his work. Here you have the first selection of projects. More coming soon!


Vintage Esso Gas Station – 1/43 scale diorama





Hot Rod Shop – 1/43 scale diorama




1971 Daytona Gulf Team Pit Stop – 1/43 scale diorama





Thank you Victor Ortiz for sharing your work with us!

Beautiful work Victor! I’m a fan of large scale & am looking forward to seeing more.

P.S. I’ve always loved that early 70’s Gulf theme.

Hi Victor
Great dioramas.
My passion is dioramas as well.
I like you really enjoy the creativity of doing them.
I have built from the 1/43 up to the 1/8th scale .
After I did the largest I decided one is enough as they take up a lot of space.
Happy easter.
