Still have to adjust a couple of things, but I feel my figure painting is coming to a point, that I I am becoming satisfied with the results so far. Just have to keep at it. I think, I may still need to do another wash. The green is not exactly the green for this type of camo but that is what I had on hand. I am going to get the right color for this camo pattern, soon. Unfortunately my photography skills still need lots of improvement. Oh well. If you have noticed, I used the vehicles from my previous diorama in this vignette. The previous diorama does not exist any more. Thanks for looking.

Yea, what he said. With the visual condition you have made the vehicles I would expect the roll up door to suffer a bit more damage or weathering. Otherwise it looks awesome!

I understand what you are thinking. But consider this. The heavy vehicle damaged may not have happened at that very spot. They could have bulldozed a heep av these vehicles in order to create a barricade ;)

Heh!  Long ago, I did a tour as a Marine Corps Drill Instructor at MCRD San Diego. The only part of the job that ever really scared me was taking recruits to the pistol range at Camp Pendleton.  With a rifle, even the lightweight M-16, people tend to hold it with both hands.  But with a pistol, everybody thinks he's Jesse James.

Our M1911 Colt .45's were only used for training.  They were old, loose and often jammed. We gave the recruits strict instructions:  if the weapon malfunctions, keep it pointed downrange at all times.  Raise your hand and we will come help you.

Well, they usually didn't do that.  Instead of pointing it downrange, they would swing the .45 so the muzzle was right in my face. Or try to clear the jam themselves, by shoving the barrel into their crotch and vigorously yanking on the slide. 

According to legend, when Camp Pendleton built a new pistol range, the very first round fired went into a recruit's foot.  I had no problem believing that.

And yep, that diorama is awesome.  Very junky and cluttered, just like real life! (That's a compliment.)
