I almost forgot that I wanted to show you some pictures of my diorama for this year's ISSC competition.
Once again, I used some figures from Alex' dystopian future set. You can find them and more of his work here.
I called the diorama 'A long way home'. It's a family on it's way back home through a post-apocalyptic environment.
Once there was a big old house standing here. It must have been hit by something really big - all that's left now, are piles of debris.
...and you will laugh when I tell you how I created that huge amount of bricks and debris: I simply took three or four evenings of time and shreddered all plastic sprues that I had available. Recycled plastic parts, inked in bright grey and then heavily washed with two strong tones of dye. Simple, but with a good effect.
The whole diorama has been build during a period of about four or five months and finally won a bronze medal. :-)
