Hi Barry...much obliged. The images here are quite big and I'm seeing that my style has changed. I used to airbrush most of my weathering especially rust stains. So they look kinda soft.

Cheers,
Richard

One for the ages. Sometimes all the magic comes together at once, compo., assy., & finishes. You can tell it has old figs by their hands showing the state of the art at the time. BTW, I've known guys w/two left feet. PaulE

Hi Mike and Paul...thanks. If I could turn back time and do it again with knowledge I have gathered through the years might not turn out the same. I can only reminise and be thankful it got done. :smiling2: I don't know if I'm more detailed than I ever was. Sometimes I feel nothings changed perhaps some finer painting or a certain technique has improved. Still I look at it and just smile.
Paul you discover them on the dance floor when you get stepped on. :tears-of-joy:

Cheers,
Richard

I love dioramas like this where there is a lot of activity like the scene is alive. I think this is A+ work and seeing work like this inspires me to continue model making.

Thanks Alex. I'm glad this has inspired you as much as it was an inspiration to build.

Cheers,
Richard

Thanks Monica, so you prefer guys with two left feet...just kidding.:smiling4: Ya, his pose looks very relaxed. The two left feet made it possible to have it close together and the joint was covered extending the smock with putty.

Cheers,
Richard

Hi Steve, thank you very much. With digital cameras these days it's as easy as point and shoot. All you need is a large nuetral background and sufficient light. I have a clear roof over my porch that gives good diffused natural sunlight.

Cheers,
Richard

:tears-of-joy::tears-of-joy: Hi Greg, thanks and glad that there is many things you like about it to relook over and over again. Reposting and seeing it on screen as opposed to having it live before me is quite rewarding and thats why we sit ourselves down for hours on end just building. Friends now understand why I do such a hobby after looking at the results. I bet you get it too.

Cheers,
Richard
