23-window VW bus vignette

Post by tiking on Mon 11 Jun 2012, 3:51 am

Been working on this for the last 3 days now and this is what I put together. Hope you all approve. If you look closely you'll see some bird eggs inside the right side headlight. The wheel lugs or bolts are on the ground next to the tireless axle.

Very nice...if that were a real one then someone would be organizing to go and drag it out as it is an easily restorable bus. As always you do great work.

nice job, I like how you've got the plants growing around and under the bus, something most overlook.

The only thing is that you should be smiling after all these compliments...you need to get a happier face for your picture. tease

As usual my friend your work is faultless. The detail you get , the imagination and thought you put into each model is truly astounding.

This model is no exception. Those eggs ...you must have really small birds over there ?? Very Happy

Love the base! Very realistic, what are your trees made from? Or are they the real thing?

Thanks. This is how I made the pine trees. I wrote a tutorial about them at this link:

This is truly amazing workmanship Charles. Your keen eye for colour and attention to natural details really make your dioramas jump out and grab the viewer. I am in constant awe of your artistry, and after reading your article on "pine trees made easy", I remain convinced you are one of the best builders I have seen. Please keep sharing your work with us - it's absolutely awesome!

Wow!Tezza. Those are some really inspiring words. I am almost blushing. Thank you for your kind words. I do try and although my methods may not be too advance as most, they work me. I am learning everyday and trying to find new ways of doing things. As for the pine trees, I have found a another vegatation that may look even better than the florist ferns I used back in 2003. I am going to do a very small vignette just to show it off and see how it looks.

Decided to take it one more step. So I cut of the area that represented the closed sky view canvas and replace it with 3 braces and worn out canvas. Hope you like it.
