Been working on this for a while. Not 100% complete but almost. Still got some dents to immitate on the cab and more weathering on the trailer chassi but all-in-all, is pretty much done.

That is a very cool diorama indeed. Quite a lot of detail to take in, but it is wonderful to behold.

where did you get your trees? They are the hardest part of an outdoor setting to replicate in 1/25th scale. I'm always looking for fresh ideas to improve my diorama's.Your trees look very realistic, and this tends to be a weak area in mine.
Nicely done, very creative idea.

Very cool. One time when chassis detail is absolutely mandatory!

Very realistic ... shredded tires, damage and weathering.
Poor thing feels like a turtle on it's back

Very unusual idea for a diorama. I don't think I ever saw another one like it. Good job. I like it.

Shame I did not know this at the time, I would probably done it. :)

The trees and all vegetations are the real thing. I have always used what nature has to offer since I was building 1/35 scale armor. The trees are small branches broken of a bigger tree. The grass is moss and the rest are tree stems and whatever looks the part. I always choose particular ones because not all branches will look right. And not all moss will produce the same effect.

A thousand thanks to everyone else who has replied. I do appreciate your comments.

i REALLY like this!
It's a very different way of presenting a truck model. It shows off the underside (something we don't see too often), it's extremely well done and it's very imaginative.
Wonderful concept, beautifully done.
Congratulations, Charles.
