Going on a slightly different course with this one now. It was going to be a school trip but i found that was going to be a heck of a lot more work and i would have to scratch a lot of figures to pull of a convincing story. i have decided to change it to a holiday for the whole family with grandad showing the generations where he fought as a lad. I need to convert most figures but i think i would be able to pull that off.

.....that is a photo from a real garden with some 1/1 manikins painted as plastic figures!!!
What can I say? FANTASTIC, this is one of the most realistic diorama/vignette I ever seen.

Bravissimo!

Hello Andy,

best dio I have ever seen. Especially your picture with the real background melting with your dio.
I really cannot say, where the dio ends and the background begins or vice versa.
Great art!!!!
