  1. It seems like such a mundane subject but when captured this way it's an amazing diorama. The whole things is truly fantastic!

  2. I know someone to whom this very thing happened, Charles. Very, very well done!

  3. Wonderful, my friend Charles! The figures' expression couldn't be more realistic.

  4. That is a riot! You’ve shown me a totally different direction that modeling can go … comic relief! Instead of trying to get all the meticulous details correct on a plane or a tank this is looks like a more relaxed and fun type of project. Very well done and thank you.

  5. Wow, the figures are life like. Charles are they 3D printed and scanned from real figures? They have been painted to perfection. I'm familiar with the saggy, baggie white and pasty age group. Being a member myself and in the winter saggy and baggie apply after all of the holidays. With promises of I'll only eat one plate of . . . and a promise of exercising everyday after the fact.
    A good compositional choice of placing the red box between the figures and towards the center of diorama. Its ties everything together and brings the viewers eye towards the center. It makes things work.

    Two thumbs up.

    I hand no choice, smashed the like button.

  6. Very original, outstanding work as usual.

  7. The figures do complete this diorama perfectly, Charles @tiking
    So much realism in this build, for example to cracked concrete where the forklift hits the tarmac.

  8. Very lifelike. I think anyone that has worked with a forklift has had a similar incident. Ask me how I know! Well done. I

  9. I've seen that look before. Captures that moment when words fail.

  10. Great scene so well done. Don't let the Health and Safety brigade see it they will think it's real it's that good 👍

  11. Wonderful, artistic work, as usual, Charles. Congratulations for capturing such a complex instant with such amazing faithfulness!

  12. LOL I work in manufacturing, I have seen very similar scenes, well done!

  13. Great figures, Charles, love the graffiti, too.

  14. The figures add that extra something and you've painted them well. Great result.

    • Thanks Christopher. It took some time getting the right look for them, but mostly the skin texture. Painting figures is not my strongest point, but I am determine to be good at it. 🙂

  15. Ooops! Maybe he's related to the boss. Great detail!

  16. No Christmas for you! Well done, Charles.
