This is another hobby of me, which i stopped doing, having no more space for it.
I doubted a long time to post it, since it is not entirely from wood, and if it would fit the other projects.
The characters are from hardend clay, car cement. The road is also cement. The lamps are working.
The base is from wood and the wall and door, and everything else that looks like wood :)
I used wire to create a base for the clay. For the car wood at the base with chickenwire around it,
then screwed it to the base of the set.
I stopped after this set, having no more space to put them.. i really want to make more of them because it gives me so much joy.
The idea came from a dream i had. Driving with my dad to get some food. He was drunk and hit a pole.
After that i walked away.. But in the set i made myself sitting on the barrier.

a nightshot..

some more..

What a great diorama! You sitting with your head in your hand iis priceless. This is very imaginative and a great way to materialize the dream. You don’t need space, these would be an easy sell. Great detail, even down to the manhole cover.

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

Thanks so much Spoon :) i forgot the word diorama. I tried once selling it, or getting it in a small gallery so i had reason to go on But never heard anything since. I found it hard to get rid of :)

Looks like fun to make . The way your wall continues into the city-scape (nicely painted ) gives some nice depth. Dreamy :)

This is great. It is easy to sympithize with your character, i feel as if im walking down the other side of the street whispering to a friend about what has happened. You have a talent!

Can we see more? Please!
I’m interested in doing something somewhat similar but with more wood involved.

Hi Tag84. Really enjoyed it. At one time when my daughter was still young, I made ​​her house out of wood. I also really like to do something like that.
You’ve got very beautiful.
