'Crossing'
Posted by Tiking on Friday, June 23, 2017 2:37 AM

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:

Cool idea and love how you pulled it off! Yes

Hello!

That's a nice one, Tiking - looks just like Poland in the nineties, maybe with the exception that the road is better shape and the stickers look strange :-))

Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

I love it!

The impatient dude in the van really needs a serious butt-whooping though. The fella in the car can't yet move on without running the woman over.

TiKing !

 You better be careful fella ! That looks like you cheated and put a female figure in front of a photo . Awesome detail and incredible realism . Love that you worked vertically besides horizontally .

     The touches on the cars signs and facial features look yanked right from living folks .How about kicking the van drivers Butt ? Can we have a dio showing a "  Big " fella getting out of that little car to " Speak " to the van driver ? Huh , Huh , ??

 I love it . Thank you , and one question ? Do they actually have signs in Europe about crossing and updating ?  ?    T.B.

In Holland, they now have lights on the pavment so people can see when they can cross while looking at their phones.

Yes. It seems so. Not all countries but the one I found was in one particular country I don't remember off hand. I thought It was a nice touch to add to the diorama.
