A higher form of diorama with literally layers of meaning - the hard edge of the debris immediately reminded me of the eye-witness accounts of bulldozers being sent into the square & they weren’t just piling up rubble. Superb & hope you continue to develop this kind of concept, bravo Hans



Thanks Tim, as long as the ideas keep popping up I will continue to make "different" diorama's.

...where did you find the figurine?...



I believe this is the figure he used. Royal Model Tiananman Tank Man (#823).




Thanks Cheyenne and yep, that's the guy.

I really like the concept and it looks great overall. One small issue though, the barrel is upside down. The bore evacuator should be offset to the top, not the bottom.




you are so right! Hope I can fix it. Barrel is metal and glued with....superglue

Thanks Jerry, but what about the way I handled the concept, so "the build" itself



Of course the build was very well done. Is that what you meant?
