Great work Nick! I like the Ile Flottante idea because it's one of my favourite deserts.  http://winosandfoodies.typepad.com/my_weblog/2007/07/waiter-theres-a.html

What also struck me instantly was the similarity between your scene and some lesser known event involving an iceberg.

Vey nice Island Nick! I love the subject
Is there any progress on the whole diorama?

Some time ago there was an animation series called Skyland. Unfortunately they only made 1 season (as far as I know) but for inspiration still a lot can be found on the net
Parts of episodes can be found on youtube.
For example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nqtt-dGYkF4&list=FL9l9QXjpReIBAO1GIoI3FFg&index=22&feature=plpp_video

or pictures for example pictures through google.

My kids used to watch Skyland. I am pretty sure there was more than one series - otherwise that single series had a hell of a lot of episodes!!! Cool concepts - right up there with Cowboy Bebop and Dr Who.

This hanging island concept with floating skyboats has me thinking about a new layout which I must resist. I have run out of room and I haven't even finished layout two (out of four planned already).

There has been progress , but I haven't taken any photos recently . I shall leave it until I have made more progress .
 
   The diorama had its first public outing today and seemed to meet with  a favourable reaction . Mainly because they didn't know what they were looking at .

 The Skyland clip looks interesting and I'm sure there would be some useful ideas in the programmes . Though I'm not sure I'm going to sit through lots of episodes to find them !

I ‘m number fourteen!
Hey I got mine today! It’s a beautiful day here in Idaho, so I rode my beach cruiser (now a cow field cruiser) down to my small town post office, and I got my Deck hands! Woo Hoo
I am sure I am the first on my block to get theirs! And heck I’m pretty sure the first person above the 43 parallel?Huh?
They came nicely packaged in this cool box!
Now if I could just figure out where I left that darn Remora??? It was floating around here somewhere,...............

Awesome. These are from my additional casting company that I brought on to do the figure releases. These smaller releases were slowing up the larger ones so I had to hire more production... now I have 3 casters doing iMech releases... should be enough for a while. LOL! My original caster is still doing the first 2 Sashas, (1/32 and 1/35) but I might transfer them to the new guy as well so he can focus on the big stuff.
