Somebody Missed the Road

December 27, 2022 · in Diorama · 28 · 0.7K

Since I did the mud scenario, I wanted to try a snow scenario. My inspiration came from a similar scene I found on the net.

  1. Your snow & ice look very realistic ! Makes me want to make sure I have my ice scraper in the car. Good work on this winter diorama.

  2. Most realistic looking snow Iโ€™ve ever seen someone create. Bravo, Charles. Interesting burial angle of the cab pointing skyward. What did the driver do? Backed up into abandoned open well or something?

    • Hi Eric. Thanks for your uplifting comment. The inspiration was taken from the picture I have just attached. I assume the driver made it out 'ok'.

  3. Definitely seemed to have missed the road, Charles @tiking
    The snow and ice effectrs are indeed very realistic.
    The ice on the windscreen does remember me about those mornings when you have to go to work but first need to scrape the ice to get some visibility.
    Well done, have a great New Year.

  4. Yep! It sure does. That's why I often heat up the car half an hour before getting in. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. An outstanding Masterpiece as usual Mr. King. That ice and snow effects are truly awesome!

  6. Again, we are left speechless by your creativity and modeling skills, my friend Charles! Have a great 2023!

  7. This model is all too true and for some this is a nightmare. Here in the states where digging out of snow storms and blizzards. Roads have been closed but, people still try to navigate/drive in conditions where the wind and snow covers the road and you don't know where the road is until your off it and on your side. Then the National Guard has to look for you with their tracks or snowmobiles. With luck your still alive.
    Charles, this is a chilling build and accurately shows when pooh happens.

    Two thumbs up.

  8. Your dioramas are just amazing. The frost on the windows is wonderful.

  9. Now thatโ€™s a bad day! The snow looks so realistic Iโ€™m feeling cold just looking at it. Very well done Charles.

  10. Appropriate for current conditions Charles. Chilling harbinger for many . Commerce just rolls along provided you know where the road is ! Out West is just a watery deluge, just not frozen. Nice work. Happy 23 with more to view from you.

  11. You sure you didn't just take those pictures outside here in the States over the weekend? ๐Ÿ™‚

    As usual, very nice, very realistic work.

  12. Another masterpiece, Charles (@tiking). The ice is very realistic. It reminds me of that show that used to be on called Ice Road Truckers. It makes me cold just to look at your pictures. Well done.

    • I remember the ice road truckers. Although not everything in that show was true, or more or less blown up just to make the show more exciting, made for an entertaining. They even had a fake truck model to look like a real truck had gone through the ice. Pretty convincing though.

  13. Well done, Mr always.

  14. All too realistic for some I think, more great work.

  15. Yikes! I had to turn up the heat after seeing this. Well done.
