Overall, this is a nicely done diorama. The detailing is really great. My only problem with it, and this is purely personal, is that the two figures don't work together. On one hand you have the casualness of the woman holding the baby, while on the other, the bike rider either in, or expecting, imminent trouble. My mind keeps wanting to visualize the biker just pointing down the road without the pistol, as if she's giving directions, or the mother figure displaying more of a defensive posture. Either way would tie them together better.

Very well done with wonderful detail and finishes. great colors,etc. I agree about the non-interaction though.

from what I understood the woman with child is seeking protection from the lady on the bike that is shooting into someone.

The build & details all look great and the colors go well together. But as noted, the "story" isn't clear right away. And maybe it's me, but that pack of Marlboros looks over scale to the other details.

It looks like it would be.

As I mentioned above, that would be better portrayed if the women was crouched down a bit being more protective of the baby. But, again, that's just me.
