Hi all. This is what I’ve been working on lately. Still have some things to add before calling it complete. Still adjusting the placement of the details to make sure I am satisfied with the end results.

As always, Charles your work is absolutely fascinating...... and you seem to be able to capture a smaller part of a much bigger scene, that has a really strong impression of scale. Your photography also is very effective in terms of conveying the size of the diorama scene. There is so much to take in here, that I shall need to come back and have a longer look!

Thank you kindly David. I do my best. Still need to add the corrugated sidings at both ends of the steel beams, a welder, and some added details, before calling it done. And you're right. This is suppose to be a section of a bigger building. Since I do not have the space, I just tend to do cut-out sections of an entire scene. Easier to validate the reasoning of a doing such a large scale area. :)

Excellent!  The weathering is amazing!

What scale is that?

Glad you approve Paul. The scale is 1/35.

Wow. That is real art. Your ability to capture surface, texture, material, weathering, and aging effects is brilliant.

Really nice work on that Charles...

I like the 'inside, but outside' feel to it.

Major Overhaul - Stage 3

Ok guys. Here is stage 3. As you can see, since stage 2 was posted sometime ago, I've added a scratch built steel truss with an overhead crane.  The overhead crane is a kit from Walthers. Yes, it is a HO scale railroad kit. But within the parameters of this scale, its usage was perfect. I had to cut and splice the kit to fit the space I needed. I also incorporated some scratch built parts to give it some UMP! :)

If you noticed, one of the mechanics has a remote control that operates the overhead crane. The crane itself was modified to simulate the new changes as it was manually operated by a operator who sat in a cab in the air. So, I justified this by the removal of that cabin and replacing the controls as a remote control device, in the hands of the operator. I have one issue, that I am still working out. It is to get the tension of the crane cables straighten out. It's a little better than before, but you can still see a little kink . Any suggestion let me know. 

I also added a scratch built corrugated siding at both ends of the workshop entries. Added a scratch built flood light at both ends as well. I added a fourth figure, a welder. I am still working at improving my figure painting, so don't hit me over the head, too hard. I know I still need more work. But I can tell, I am improving. :) I am still contemplating, if he should be welding where he is at the moment. I'm looking for other alternatives. so, he is not glued in placed until I've decided.
I've also added more detail in the armor cabin. You can see a wire hanging downwards, that looked it has been strip from whatever it was connected to, after being removed from the body. I thought it would add some interest to the effect of the diorama.

So far that's about it. Will try and take some better photos and post the final look, when I get everything finalized. Thanks for looking.

I buckled up the corrugated sidings and dirtied it up a bit. Re-positioned the welder at the ripper instead, as I was told it would be better and more believable if he is doing welding work there instead. I managed to get the kinks out, about 99%. So I'm satisfied with it. Now, I have a couple more details to add, at least for now.

This just gets better and better, Charles...... especially with outdoor daylight. Be careful about losing some of your brilliant detail when the background trees get too complicated. It is okay when the background is slightly out of focus.
