The Yard

This scene is similar to somewhere or anywhere in the world. If you have seen something similar or very similar than you know what I mean. The scale is 1:35.

That is amazing… To many superb details to comment on … Each picture could easily be the real thing, so realistically done :+1:

I remember seeing the half burnt out digger- nice to see it as part of a larger dio now! The other parts are up to your usual standards- which is to see they look equally as realistic! You have a wonderful way of creating scenes that could be actual photos from real life- even down to the little weeds dotted around and the slightly dirty concrete on the wall of the shed. But your vehicles are the real draw I think- colors that look factory matched and weathering that makes them look exactly like they just pulled into the yard. Just a wonderful scene to look at and admire- and also appreciate the skill it took to create it!

The detail is superb, I can’t believe how realistic it looks! Awesome job.

If I may, what did you use for your vegetation, i.e. grass and bushes? Whatever you did, it looks amazing!

:grin:

20 minutes have flown by and I don’t think I’m even halfway done looking at this masterpiece. I too think I recognise a couple of elements but who cares, this has been taken to another level entirely, namely into my all-time top 10 dioramas list. The base/groundwork alone is exceptional. Magic.

Top notch as usual Charles. :+1::+1:

What kit is the semi truck?

Thank you kindly. Glad you approve. The vegetation is the real deal. Hand picked from my yard, and treated. :slight_smile:

Karl, it’s always a pleasure seeing you being analytical about a model. Much appreciated and very uplifting. Thank you big time, my friend.

Wow! That’s a very nice compliment. Much appreciated. Yes, I did use some of my previous builds to make this overall diorama. I am trying to make more room for future builds.

Thanks. The trailer is from the Trumpeter M915 kit. I modified it and added a few minor details.

You could post these on a photography page and the only way folks would know it’s not the 1:1 real thing is that the figures are in the same pose in different angles. Seriously, I thought you were posting a reference set of some real world yard someplace.

What you have done is to make this scene so well done that most people would not look twice, just thinking it is a photo of the back of the building of some business and in that you greatly succeeded. Nothing is “off” to make the viewer stop and go that’s not a photo of some random stuff, it’s a model. The quality of your work is the perfect camouflage to disguise that it is a model.
Few could pull it of so well.
I would ask that you make a short tutorial on how you did the vegetation. I look at it and want to fire up my string trimmer. My vegetation normally looks like that bright green grass matts you get for railroad setups.
