    Hi guys [IMG] ,
    My latest vignette based on a Romero Models 54mm figure base and some good old sculpting/scratchbuilding [IMG] . The all white metal bits in the set (except the bollard) were replaced with copper and brass wire from my spares box, and detailed with ropes and a chain from the same. The boxes are from Resicast, the wine bottle from Diopark, the tin cans and newspaper from Plus Models. The tarpaulins and general waste around the vignette, plus the clipboard are from Duro, Magicsculpt and plastic card. The DAK trooper is fully sculpted using parts from Hornet, Historex and Evolution Models. The modified sun helmet (DAK to South African) is from the Airfix Afrika Korps set. Finally, the 2 seagulls and pelican are full-scratchbuilds from the method illustrated by JBA from Armorama on his "Birds" diorama thread (thanks,Jean [IMG] !) Hope you all like it and thanks for looking. Cheers !

    Fantastic Kenneth, an original and well composed theme, I love the birds.
    I'm sure this will look even better once painted.
    The chappie reminds me of Lofty from Ain't half hot mum (UK comedy) or even Twoflower discworlds first tourist.
