Hi Deltakilo. It is actually wall filler. The same thing used to fill in holes in the wall before painting. Very soft stuff, at the least that particular brand i used over here

Hihi. Go for it. There is no substitute for the real thing.  Or if it is rainy get day light lamps.

I added the fourth figure but removed the car due to unsatisfactorily blemishes.

This is absolutely incredible work.  You have layered detail upon detail upon detail in this diorama, and the overall impact is just flat-out astonishing.  Brilliant!  And Bravo!

Do you have any thoughts about what you'll tackle next?  I, for one, can't wait to see it, whatever it is.

Brilliant . . .

Thanks Charles.  Appreciate the comments. Well. Let us see. I do have a couple of diorama ideas but i will be doing a 1/24 truck building next. I am still messing around with this diorama by changing things around. I have npw added two US soldiers. I am just working on finishing off them at the moment. I really wanted the car to be added but had to throw it in the bin because it was totally messed up.

Tiking: This just keeps looking better and better!

Heck, if the car is ruined bust up the chassis and paint it black like it was detonated by a car bomb!

Thanks.  I thought about it but the chassi had soften too much due to me removing and painting the bloody thing over and over again because I could not get the look I wanted. I guess the paint remover was slightly stronger than i anticipated.

Finally added the US figures. Again. I am no figure builder. I still need lots of practice but I had to add them to give the dio a more atmospheric ambience.

This is such a special, and terrific, piece of work.  For my money, your figures look just fine, and I think they add a very nice touch.  Your eye for detail blows me away, and I love the outdoor photography.  

There's nothing like natural light to make the details really pop.

Thanks Charles. Totally agree. There is nothing better than natural lighting.
