Maher,

Very nice subject interaction, groundwork, building, and photography. The cable hanging from the rafter is a very nice touch as well. This is an outstanding composition overall.

One minor observation: The MG seems to be pointing at the lower figureís hand and/or at the corner of the structure. However, nicely done!🍺

Exceptional details & painting! Really impressed with how the dog actually looks furry. That ruin looks a lot like an old Italeri from many moons ago. Great scene, thanks for posting!

The stonework looks like an old Italeri piece. If so, what did you use to improve it?

It is the Italeri kit indeed re-boxed by Tamiya.
I've used kids modeling clay to complete the backside and thin layers of Styrofoam to enhance the front side!

Maher -

This is so masterfully done. Love the photo background. Details are exceptional and so realistic making the scene come alive. From the walls of the ruin, to the fur on the German Shepard and lantern added, just so well done. I was almost expecting to hear night sounds like a cricket or something with the night scene. Thanks for sharing.

Gentlemen,

I really appreciate your kind words and I thank you all for your support!

A couple of projects ahead, but first things first.. Need to finish some work & family commitments, then I hope in a couple of weeks I'll be able to get back to the bench!

Cheers,

Maher
