Jim, if this were mine, I'd just arrange different things all the time, play with it just to change the photographs and the scene a bit.  What's the use of building a diorama like this if you are not going to have fun changing the elements.

 

So my vote is ALL OF THE ABOVE and MORE!

Making a water hose.

As always, your work is very inspirational. Just to clarify a couple points..Did you use the same solder to make the hook that you used to form the hose?  Also, what was the diameter?  .63 ?

This is an amazing scene! All the little details are models in themselves.

 

I do like the last scene with the wood car and dad helping out .. and the motorcycle filling out the back area.

The old man with the motorcycle and the wooden crate car and X the kids and the other guy. They look too cartoonish and out of scale. But darn good work Jim !!!

I think that Doc Cranky is right. This dio is too nice to use it only one way. I like the original idea, but the rest is very nice too. No matter how you decide, it will be perfect anyway.

I'm coming late to the "opinion" party but the option I like most of all is G but the figures would also be ghosted so that the 'rod, 'cycle, and derby car were the only "loud" colors. I also wouldn't glue everything down since you may have another idea down the road.

This diorama will be done in a few days !!

 

Yesterday I added some lighting over the work benches.

(It is difficult to take good pictures so that you can see the lights.)

The lights look great and add another area of dimension to this already incredible scene. I just now noticed the thing between the fridge and the right side of the desk on the floor but can't quite make it out. To me, it looks like a pedal car on its side.

The diorama is finished ! 

 

With the help of some of your comments I decided that I can always simply put a model car in this diorama to achieve my original goal. 

 

So before I show you what I decided to do for the final layout I will take some photos of some of my cars in this diorama, just to see what color car looks the best.   

 

Tell me what you think.
