Thinking of adding one last figure. There is a hole that needs to be filled to tie it all together. Deciding which figure.

Thank you Hyder and Nick. Ok, so I added more trash and a couple of black trash bags, graffiti on the shutter and the two figures. I think that with that I am calling this one done. It is raining outside, so pictures with better lightning will have to wait, but here it is:







Any comments or final suggestions are very welcome.

Hi Marcos,

Looking great - Nice work! I agree with you about the Paracel figures, they look really good and go together, paint up really well -

Cheers

I just finnished these 2 figures that I am thinking of adding to the diorama:







The paracel figure is great, but the Takom female is of a much lower quality, and I think it shows. But I might use it anyway.

Amazingly good Marcos. You are wondering about the amount of debris. Photos of such scenes can be confusing - sometimes even if a building hasn't collapsed, the rubble outside seems to fill the street. Perhaps something to think about is the demeanour of your figures which suggest that this is no longer a dangerous area, there's no snipers or booby traps etc. Photos seem to suggest that pretty soon after an area is captured and made safe then rubble is cleared enough to allow the road to be used. So maybe if you add more it should be like it was covering the street but has been moved to the side, so piled up, leaving behind a lot of dust which the vehicles are now driving through.
This street was probably completely blocked:

Notice the earth mover:

I am stuck! Not sure what else to add to the street. It looks too clean to me, but I don't want to over do the debris. I am currently looking at a lot of pictures for reference, see if that helps



I love it. It sure brings back memories. I have several photos of typical street debris in Rabiah, which bordered Syria, and was very much like a Syrian town.




But in my mind, nothing conveys a general feeling of nastiness better than trash lying in stagnant water:




And of course the ubiquitous black plastic bags,which were everywhere. They actually flew around like some sickly bird.



If you need graffiti I've got tons of that as well

It is looking superb buddy. Graffiti would be nice yes. Maybe also consider adding something to where the sidewalk meets the walls? Debris and rubble and trash tend to gravitate towards those areas a lot.

It looks great Marcos– that air-con unit’s a little work of art on its own. A couple of suggestions – the back of the wooden pole still has the details of the paintbrush type it used to be (July 31/7th photo)…and maybe it’s that front door that looks out of place, as though nothing bad had ever happened? I’d expect it to be kicked off its hinges inwards or blown off its hinges outwards...& maybe one of the shutters too to break up that uniformity. The street looks much better now, & yes maybe put some graffiti on those clean walls too.

Also thinking of adding some gaffiti to the roller shutter. What do you guys think?
