Awesome Boylei Hobby Time

Fire-breathing Bowser Diorama

Fire-breathing Bowser Diorama

After watching the trailer for the Super Mario Bros. movie, Boylei Hobby Time was inspired to recreate the fire-breathing Bowser scene as a diorama. He started by making the buildings out of wood and foam, added a 3D-printed Bowser, painted everything, and created the fire effect using LED filament lights and cotton.

Creepy Mine Diorama

Creepy Mine Diorama

What’s worse than the claustrophobic feeling of walking down an old mine shaft? How about adding a human-sized spider lurking beneath a trap door? Boylei Hobby Time created this imaginative diorama of a couple of miners who don’t know what dangers await them. This wasn’t the first time he went mining for giant arachnids.

Building a Steampunk Model Airship

Building a Steampunk Model Airship

Modelmaker Boylei Hobby Time created this fanciful miniature of an airship based on viewer requests. He started with two individual dirigible models and combined them to form the floatation system for a steamboat that hangs beneath them. The finished piece looks like something from Jules Verne’s imagination.

The Book of Boba Fett Diorama

The Book of Boba Fett Diorama

Excited about The Book of Boba Fett? Boylei Hobby Time can’t wait either, so he made a model based on the scene of Fett holding court at the end of The Mandalorian Season 2. He started with an off-the-shelf Boba Fett model, meticulously painted and distressed it, then created a custom throne, complete with rancor heads.

Sculpting Darth Maul

Sculpting Darth Maul

While Darth Maul might not have turned out to be the most impressive villain in Star Wars history, he sure looked the part. Watch as artist Dr. Garuda crafts an picture-perfect sculpture of the spiky-headed baddie. He just needs to team up with Boylei Hobby Time to add a light-up version of his double lightsaber.

DIY Mini Darth Vader LED Lightsaber

Model maker Boylei Hobby Time loves to incorporate light into his dioramas. In this clip he shows us how he took an off-the-shelf 1/12th-scale model of Darth Vader and took it to the next level with a backlit metal base and a bright red lightsaber that runs on a flexible LED filament set inside of a cocktail straw.

Star Wars Dogfight Diorama

Star Wars Dogfight Diorama

Model maker Boylei Hobby Time shows us how with a little creativity and skill, off-the-shelf model kits can become so much more. For this build, he took a miniature X-Wing Fighter and a duo of TIE Fighters, and brought them to life using LED filament lights to simulate lasers, and a little steel wool to create a spark effect.
