Picture frame base which is perfect for size of the dio
and just some test layouts,posistioning of the truck and figures,cab roof and canvas back cover not fixed in place

gauging the deoth of that frame there will be some sunk truck in that.
Pls send pictures of steps because I like to learn some of the diorama tricks.
Truck was placed at an angle as is the golden rule in dios for best visual effect and the figures were put in place.
I also added some static grass forming two corners to shape the road and a fence from miniart was also added.A telegraph pole was also added to add some height to the dio and some wires will be added to this in due course.I will prob add some abandoned equipment,debris behind the fence to also add some depth here.A few trusty oil drums and jerry cans were also used.
Varoius shades and colors of brown were used for the initial mud coloring and more will be done before the final presenation,also some clear varnish will be used to get a wet look effect.The groundwork was worked up and indented by using and old paintbrush and also tracks from the truck were done and some footprints but this mud being so slushy n messy footprints didnt last long.A few more ideas will no doubt come into my head before this is finished as sometimes its just best to let things flow rather than sticking to a fixed plan,thats what i find anyhow
So overall im pleased with the progress and now its a matter of doing the finer details and will also prob do a stain or paint the frame.Thanks for looking and following this build
Ok some pics,some materials used for the groundwork and also static grass and miniart fence
laying down the muddy groundwork
Figures make an appearence
And time to get down and dirty,color added and mixing up and shaping the groundwork
oh and telegraph pole made up
Pics were taken at different stages over two days so prob some variation in them is obvious
So thats the latest progress lads,as i said this is still in progress and all fine details will be done with the truck,figures,the fence etc and everything will be tied up and finished off in the next installment.....hopfully
