First diorama Joe........!!?? Very nice, you've done a great job The brickwork does look good, nice variation in color. One idea, perhaps add a little (just a little) 'frost' to the ground to tie in with the cold look of some of the figures?
But overall, good job.

Simon.

Hi Joe
Good start.
The street is too clean, after such destruction of a building there will be a lot of dirt, dust and garbage around, also some floor wood and etc.

Very nicely done! Though I do agree that some more dust or debris would look good on the street, door & steps of the building. The vehicle & crew look really good!!

Man, your awesome finished work doesn't look like as a first job on a diorama! Congratulations! Special love for the figures and the buildings, hope that I can be good as you do and my only suggestion is just add more dust on the diorama to represent debris and ruins more dirty.. Keep on going Joe!


Warm regards from Indonesia

Good stuff Joe! May I make a few suggestions? The internals of the building seem to be a bit off. The building has no cellar -- OK. But why is there a set of stairs leading to a raised platform? If someone enters the building and turns right -- there's a trap for him to fall onto the ground floor? The levels of the bldg should make sense. I also agree w/other about the amount of debris -- even one section of wall would create a huge pile. NOt that you need to replicate every cubic millimeter of material -- but with destroyed brick/cinder bldgs, they're a huge mess. Keep up the good work!
