North American desert (bml87)
« on: September 05, 2018, 19:47:57 »
The next couple of weeks you’ll find me in the desert! I will post more pictures in this topic during the creation of my new diorama.

I bought 25kg of river sand to create a desert atmosphere. I used about 7kg for this diorama. Note that you have to bake river sand in the oven for about one hour at 150° Celsius to make it clean and dry.

As you can see, one klicky is already in serious trouble... (Click to enlarge).


The left part of the diorama is reserved for the native Americans and the right part will be the territory of the Yankees... To be continued

*basically a scene from our local botanical gardens*

It's a shame I didn't get a picture of the train. I was just there this weekend.  :lol:

The first ideas have became reality...

Searching for gold...


Maybe in Mc Laren’s Goldmine...


Let’s look if we’re lucky today...


Come and celebrate my brothers and sisters!


Hold on! Intruders!


Kill them!


I’ll try to hit them with an arrow!

Meanwhile around the fire...


Women collecting food and children challenging each other.


- You don’t dare to jump!
* Wanna bet?


His soul is saved!


Your grandmother serves the best food! And you know it!


I will show you how to do it, watch and learn!


She’s thinking: Is he trying to impress me? (check her eyes)


Hungry beasts...


Natives! How wonderful!


A young puma is looking for a female...


Some of the pack seem to have found something to eat...


Herding buffaloes!
