My Stargate SG 1 model displays
During the lockdown due to the f***ing corona plague in 2020 I remembered a little hobby I had as a kid - building models and dioramas. Actually I do not build cars and trucks anymore, but I wanted to show some of my latest dioramas. All displays have the same theme, as they are all showing scenes of the popular TV-show "Stargate SG-1" by MGM Television Entertainment
In the Canadian rain forest
above: This display is a scene in a forest, SG-1 waiting for Sam to dial the gate address on the DHD.
I used a laser print of a picture of the Canadian rain forest as background. Wood, moss and stones served as decoration and the DHD comes from our 3D printer.
From left to right you see Colonel Jack O'Neill and Major Sam Carter in their green standard-BDUs, Teal`c and Dr. Daniel Jackson wear the Black-Ops-BDUs.
Info: BDU = Battle Dress Uniform. / SGC = StarGate Command
SG-1 in the desert
My next diorama was a desert setting that includes natural elements like stones and moss. I used some old, dry wood as well. The red sand comes fom Bryce Canyon/Utah. The background is a laser print from an original SG-1 scene which I took as a screen shot. The broken stargate in the rear is a 3D print, that then got hand colored and finished by me. The dog tags are hand made, the ball chains are original, but actually the smallest size I had.
In their desert BDUs you can see Colonel Jack O'Neill and Major Sam Carter.
In Merlin's realm
Our brave SG-1 heroes can be found in a medieval village. Again, the background is a laser print of an image of a village. The floor on which the two stand is made of hay. Wood and moss were also used as decoration.
The action figures come from Diamond Select and, like all the others, are very detailed. Even the size of the characters varies, just like the size of the actors.
In this diorama you can see a part of SG-1, namely Vala Mal Doran and Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell in their green BDUs.
My "Diamond Select" Stargate action figures
in the order of their arrival:
1. Sam Carter (green BDUs) - 2. Vala Mal Doran - 3. Jack O'Neill (green BDUs) - 4. Daniel Jackson - 5. Cameron Mitchell - 6./ 7. Teal'c together with Sam Carter (desert BDUs) as a surprise guest! - 8. another surprise Sam Carter (Atlantis) - 9. Jack O'Neill (desert BDUs) - 10./ 11. Elizabeth Weir and John Sheppard together - 12. Repli-Carter.
Stargate Atlantis - on a mission
A modified model is this Stargate Atlantis display. I used the rain forest as a background but added an Atlantis Stargate. The figures are from Diamond Select and showing Col. Sam Carter, Dr. Elizabeth Weir and Lt. Col. John Sheppard on a mission!
A small display of Major Sam Carter in the SGC gate room. This was the first try with one of the action figures (made by Diamond Select) and a laser print background. This Sam Carter was also the very first figure I got.
My latest addition to my Stargate displays is a variation of my first diorama. It shows Colonel Sam Carter in the gate room as well, but this time she is in the Atlantis environment and is wearing the Atlantis uniform.
Information: The following actors did portray SGC personel in the TV show: Richard Dean Anderson (Major General Jack O'Neill) / Amanda Tapping (Colonel Dr. Samantha Carter) / Christopher Judge (Teal'c) / Michael Shanks (Dr. Daniel Jackson) / Ben Browder (Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell) / Claudia Black (Vala Mal Doran) / Joe Flanigan (Lt. Colonel John Sheppard) / Tory Higginson (Dr. Elizabeth Weir)
The military ranks are not always equal to the ones in the description of the displays, because O'Neill, Carter and Sheppard got promoted during their time with the SGC.
The cute little dog (Sky) does not belong to SG-1 originally, but is a homage to Amanda Tapping, who is a huge dog-lover!
