Hi Cheyenne,

Just checked in for the first time in a while.

This tree-choked Buddha is looking amazing.

I hope you're planning to add some suitable creepy-crawlies.

Mantis has an excellent range of jungle beasties - snakes, etc...

Looking forward to the full steamed-up look.

Regards,

Tim

I like to make rural, italian or jungle dioramas, so I noticed yours immediately.
For me, your diorama is amazing. Keep going.

The tree and root growth claiming the Buddha is outstanding Cheyenne.
You've got a good range of foliage, sweet!
Keep it coming!

You're really capturing that 'Heart of Darkness' jungle feel, Cheyenne!

Is that....parsley?

Great progress mate, that’s well & truly rooted…hi-5 for aficionados of Australian slang, non-speakers can Google it but this definition-example should suffice: “Announcing to an Australian that you ``are a cheerleader, so you don't see many football games because you are in the stands rooting'' will give a misleading impression about your devotion to the team”.

The statue had a root system all across the front face of the idol but ended and did not continue onto the back so I made my own . The tree on top will also help balance out the large high tree on the left .

David , thanks man . Googled fish tank ornaments and it's not just similar it looks like a dead ringer . Wonder who made who [ AC/DC ] and who owns the rights ? Great now I'm back to back musing that song for the next half a day .
Thanks Jer , run through the jungle/veggies , CCR .
Tim , thanks man , not so expensive when you save and use all your points .
Dave , thanks for the compliment man , means whatever I'm doin here is working and you're right , it did just get a lot bigger . I'm gonna have to get Tim over here to South Jersey to do logistics , film , backdrops , fx and production !!! Quiet on the set !!!
Bill , thanks a lot man , go for it and build . There's not a lot of Pacific dios and what is out there is usually hit the beach type builds . Not that there's anything wrong with that but once you ref and read about the entire East Asia /Pacific war there's just so much you can build .

Truly amazing and inspirational work! I’ve got to open up my Dragon US Army PTO Sherman and some WW2 US Infantry in tropical dress and create a 37th Infantry Division Dio in the jungles of Bougainville where my cousin fought! Now to get my jungle looking half as great as yours!!’

That's nice Cheyenne, I'm thinkin this slice of jungle just got somewhat larger! But it looks perfect man, great pick up.

What I just noticed after scrolling thru the pages again, is how you've nailed that rainforest look! Like there's a river and a sudden rainstorm nearby! shame on me.

Keep at it Amigo
Cheers
Dave

came across this in my local pet shop, which looks identical to the reality in scale resin offering, this item is hollow inside.

I've seen an almost identical head to the one you are using in our local pet shop in the fish tank section.. I must grab one and keep it for a future build.

yours is coming alongg brilliantly!
