    The soil is made of cloth for furniture or curtains...

    Thanks, Yogi!

    I forgot to write that the figurines used in this 'ephemeral' diorama are from the Airfix box of moon astronauts.
    I painted the flag as a UNO flag, to illustrate the international involvement in the Mars project (even if fiction!).

    Bye...

    Don't give up too soon on the international angle. Phobos-Grunt sample return mission is ESA/Russian collaboration and the ESA Mars science lab rover just picked up NASA's involvement for some hardware, a relay orbiter and maybe more.

    Current Race (back) to the moon is China (Chang-e), India (Chandrayaan), Europe (SMART), Japan (Kaguya-Selene), and the US (Lunar Recon Orbiter/LCROSS, Lunar Prospector, Clementine) and they've all been sharing mission data.

    Sure!

    What I wanted to mean, is that "my" 'Mars Landing Module' is a fiction, and of course I imagine an international cooperation, because of the cost, and to illustrate this hypothetic cooperation of many nations of the world, I didn't use any "brand" on the vessels (in place of "all" the space agencies) and decided to paint the flag of the astronaut with the UNO colours.

    Like that:
