Hi,
it's been a year since my last "Beehive" diorama, so it's time to start another one. Especially that in April there will be a modeling competition in my city. I will try to finish building the diorama by April.

The ruins of the temple are made by me of plaster.







Have a nice day
Kuba

Great to see another current project using plaster so well, and that AFV’s paint/weathering looks superb – smokin’ in fact, what’s that on the deck between the MGs??

This appears really promising. Fine start on the temple and I'm really impressed with how you did the APC!! Looking forward to how you do "the bush."

Hi Kuba,

Your diorama is shaping up very well; it really has that war-torn look with debris strewn around, and the M113 looks fantastic.

What did you use for the palm tree in the corner, by the way?

Looking forward to further progress,

Jerry

Thanks

I think there will be three figures. I'll show them soon.

canismalus: I bought a palm tree and a broken tree from prassiri on e-bay:

There is almost no debris strewn around Here are better pictures of my diorama.

I started to make lower vegetation.





Cheers

Really nice progress, especially the plants! That broad-leaf plant appears to have the right leaf thickness & the proper sheen that you'd expect to see on this type of plant. It almost looks like an aquarium plant, or did you find some other source?

Wow this is outstanding work Kuba.
The treefall is very meticulous in detail. Evenly placed and blended. Temple structure and APC are outstanding as well! Any ideas for trees?
Will be following definitely.

Cheers
Dave

obg153: vegetation is Joefix Studio sets.

As for the trees, there will be only these two. Of course, the palm will have spread leaves.

Cheers

Excellent work on the bush! Definitely captures that look of the jungle reclaiming the area where the temple was once the prominent feature.
