Dave........???

If you didnt like the way the finish turned out on one of your tugs, what would you do??

You'd fix it by redoing what you didnt like.........right?

Now a Diorama base isnt QUITE as critical since not near the time and effort is invested as is generally put into a scale model (unless of course the diorama base is Freaking HUGE ;)  )

Step By Step

1 - Take it outside and blow off the dust & Debris

2 - CLEAR your mind & Take another look at it from all 4 angles

3 - Decide what YOU want from this Diorama

4 - Begin Again as though its existing terrain that you must deal with just like real life!!

5 - Get out your Bulldozer (knife or razor saw) Front end loader (vacuum cleaner) and your surfacing machine (spatula)

Call up the local landscapers to plant your required shrubbery and the fencing company to keep all the little critters safe

While you are doing all that perhaps provide a little drainage for the surrounding area in the form of a culvert & dry creek bed or a wet one...(hmmm graffiti would be nice right here on them Wing walls)....And dont forget the Power Lines...even little people need power ;)

YOUR WORLD>>>YOUR VISION>>>YOUR RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
