That's pretty cute! - Got most of it figured out but would like some clarification on how you did the roller surface - it works well.

Well done chap ... pip pip!

Ditto. Especially the 'flattened' rust is very well captured.

Both look VERY interesting!

I'm curious about the origin of that two-seater "rocket sled".

What materials make up the diorama? Do I assume you have primed everything at this point? Can I come over and ride on the rocket sled? -- Russ

Ah, grooved rail - this is going to be interesting  Grin!

I assume the disturbing rocket's origin in a former rather lefty orientated country. Chernobyl?

Hauk,

I was really trying to create a compressed scene on this side of the wall, to sort of hint at the concept of an encircled (claustrophobic?) city that is forced to develop within it's confines...the details are pretty much as such in areas along the wall, but by moving it all closer to the edge I feel I was able to increase the effect. The other side of the wall in contrast will be far more open....but far more barren,  and grey.

Thanks Ray. The rocket sled is a photo of a piece of playground equipment, from I believe one of the old East-Bloc countries. I ran across the image on FB somewhere.
For some reason I just couldn't pass up giving it a go before Gordon did it out from under me. Cheesy

Russ,

The wall pieces are resin castings by Alex Friedrich, (the image shows them in various stages of prep/surfacing with tinted Liquitex "Modeling Paste"). The cobble stones are heavily modified Verlinden resin cobbles (individual stones). The guardrail is fabricated using brass tubing; the tram rails, curb, and everything else is fabricated out of styrene.

If you can get Slim Pickins off it, you are welcome to.
