    I think you passed "reasonable" quite some time ago. ;)

    The realism that you have put into all of these models is ABSOLUTELY MIND BLOWING! Your dioramas look like they could have been actual scenes from actual incidences. For instance: the overturned semi-truck. If you had shot that to where you could not see the base, one would think that that was a real truck that was overturned.

    Insane realism:) Hard to achieve, you have to have feel for it. Because when you want to make realistic scale model, sometimes you have to do some parts not too realistic to feel realistic.

    WOW! these are all great dioramas and builds! I admit I prefer papermodels because of the design and building and seeing it come about, working on my skills constantly making them, but these are hot!! some of those figures look just like what I need for a Land of the Giants phone diorama! great job dudes!!

    Fantastic. Weathering and aging is so real. On photos without figures I can not tell the diference from reality.

    I am simply blown away with the realism and detail that you have put into each and everyone of these models.
    I would love to see a build thread.

    Thanks for looking gents. Much appreciated. I do have a big build log of one of the dioramas I can post that if you like. If you like to see it, I have to post it with pics from where I post the pics because there many pics to post.

    Just pick one model and post the build thread of it. Please post the photos directly to the forum from your computer (that way the photos will not vanish if the website goes offline). You can post 10 (large) photos per post.

    These are some of the best works I have ever seen. If you combined these with Xavier's work, you'd just need a writer, for the story, some cameras, actors, and actresses, and you could begin shooting a movie!!
