 I severely needed a break from the daily contention and violence on the news so I took a little sidestep in my hobby. I decided to do a medium sized civilian based scene. It is fairly far along but here is a teaser.

Wow, Jerry - awesome realism as always. Looks like somewhere in Northern Europe?

Always such a pleasure to see your stellar craftsmanship.  

Your compositions and colour choices are inspirational and encourage me to improve my modelling.  

Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and beautiful models.

A day above ground is, in my opinion, a good day.  :D

  I also installed some bushes along the road.  This is a lot of fun for me and really outside my wheelhouse so I am getting a kick out of it.

Thanks for looking folks,

J

I love the big range of leaf variety. One of the very many little touches that make your dioramas so lifelike.

You have to be kidding!

The first few photos I needed to do a triple take, as I couldn't tell if is wasn't an actual scenic photo and not part of your diorama.

Geez, what a magnificent touch

Keep 'em coming

Thanks Pete,

  Here ya go. Rabbit hutch done. It is just sitting there for the mo and when I wrestle it into its' final position I will make sure the closing strings conform to gravity better. I didn't get too involved here because there will be a small shed roof covering it and so it won't be seen all that much.
