I think white truck is a decoy/roadblock to stop train and other gun truck is an ambush vehicle ? Needs figures to tell story clearer. Nice model skills

You'ld have as much luck stopping a train with a pick-up truck, as you would stopping your car with your neighbour's cat - Splat ! Just sayin' Great diorama , but as Adam says , needs a few figures to help tell the stoy

Ditto to what the others have said. It looks good, but I don't get it.

Hi all , nice buggies ...looks like it would fit into the " End of days " two campaign ...perhaps some explanation please Dung Lam Quoc ?

Doesn't seem too confusing to me, I guess the white pick-up is being pursued by the modified pick-up, and the RPG guy is about to fire off a round at the white pick-up. Looks like some good modelling work!

Reallllt nice diorama, love the detail on the "non vehicle" part of the diorama. The big pickup is very nice! any build log on that?

I've got to admit that even after spending probably longer than anyone else here looking at these photos when preparing them for publication, I'm not sure I understand what is meant to be happening, but I kind of like the mystery. The white Toyota seems to have lost a wheel on the rail crossing, and I was thinking that it was left there to look like it had been in an accident, in order to get the next train just to slow down. Putting it right across the track probably wouldn't stop a train, but it might make a driver more suspicious. Then there's that patch of what looks like blood by the track, and the dog running over to investigate. As for the RPG man, he's pointing up, so maybe he's waiting for the train, although he seems to be standing much closer that I imagine you'd want to, so maybe he's actually aiming for something further away, like over the wire fence of some installation that's "off scene". In some ways it's maybe the title that is a bit misleading... although it was the model maker's suggestion! Anyway, I enjoyed this piece and couldn't help being reminded of some of the night time scenes in old serials like Thunderbirds... something to do with the lighting, and they often used that urban look.

Dung, Fine modeling. I find the diorama intriguing. I see a post-apocalyptic story playing out -- the "Danger Zone", the infrastructure falling into disrepair; the vine on the tower; the military hulks rusting... . I also see in the pickup what appears to be fogged windows; perhaps the driver was trying to escape and the tire was knocked off; blood near the track speaks of violence, so perhaps a survivor has returned to the frail sanctuary of the pickup? The RPG man looks to be aiming to high for the truck: something beyond the scene? I don't know if this falls within the classification although I think the diorama may be considered as Context Art/Kontext Kunst, or perhaps Conceptual Art. Perhaps Dung is setting a scene in which you provide the story.
