    Hi all. I have been working on a 1/35 diorama lately but found the time to do a quick 1/24 diorama while taking a break from my present 1/35 diorama. This one is not all that.

    I'm not really a car guy but I had these kits on hand because I had planned to use them in a truck diorama. But, something else came up and I just decided to make a separate diorama for them instead. The diorama depicts a pedestrian crossing with two automobiles and a couple of people crossing or waiting to cross the street. The story tells a tale of a very impatient driver in the van trying to tell the driver in front of him;who is checking out the lady with the dog, crossing the road, to drive on; and if you look closely in one of the pictures, you will see a sign warning pedestrian to update Facebook, before crossing the street. The diorama is pretty simple. I just wanted to have a display base, that' pretty much it. Hope you guys like the results:

    Very nice. So good in fact that I can recognise that van driver - he was behind me in a traffic queue today!

    Thanls for looking and your comments. Not always easy trying to do 1/24 diorama modeling in a tight space. But with a little trail and error, it works.

    Top stuff again Charles.

    I always miss some little detail first time around when looking at your superb work. Which makes it more fun when I spot something new the second look!

    Nice one,
    Ron
