    After some time without boring you, I come back here with a new diorama. In this case it is a London scene of the early twentieth century.
    This is a first image.

    It is not yet finished. But I wanted to share with you.
    I hope you like it

    This looks really good! I guess adding some scenic LED lightning could give this a really cool flair!

    Xavier, your ability to catch these stills of life, and reproduce them can only come from a person who thinks in many dimensions. You are among very few people, though many of those few are on this forum, they congregate here as their are like minds, and even if they cannot do the work at the level you have shown, it can be appreciated by people who really understand the Master of the Art which you have perfected. :)

    Looking at this reminded me of how many times I feel off the curbs weaving my way to the nearest tube station! It was fun 40 years ago, wouldn't survive it today ;) ..In other words GREAT JOB!!

    I'm totally blown away!!! These could be used as miniature sets for film making! :)

    P.S.: You forgot to add a blue Police Box which is said to appear and then disappear in London from time to time..! ;)
