Thank you Tim. For the clothes I used tin foil; it is easier to give them the Fluttering look. I will think about the Keffiyeh.

Looking great Marcos – the clothes-line idea’s clever and necessary, I suggest that somehow it needs to be flying off the roof with towels & clothes in all directions - they could be made from tissue soaked in acrylic paint to give rigidity. It might look too “posed” but maybe you could re-work the medic’s keffiyeh to be fluttering horizontally also?

Thank you Steven,john, and Jimmy. Progress has been slow so far, but now it should start to pick up as rhe painting and weathering of the building start. I just had the idea to add a clothes line to generate the sensation of motion on such a static diorama. Lets see if it works out.

The cut façade to give the impression that you are only looking at the top of the building.



My rooftop is starting to take shape:

Playing architect. The stairs on the inside of the enclosure will be barely visible since I am planning on leaving the door open, so I partially made the stairs.




.
I know that the stairs are barely visible through the open enclosure door, but it is one of those little surprises for those who like to explore every little detail of the diorama.

I have been working on the base for a couple of days.



The roof stair enclosure will serve as the base for the helo. I did a small canal on one of the corners of the enclosure where I will embed the tube that will receive the support shaft of the helo.

Thank you Colin and Dave.
Yaroslav, I guess you meant stolen "FROM" you. I was not aware of that. The poses are different from what I see you offer, but I guess parts could have been used in modeling the figures and accessories. Since several "reputable" Hobby shops offer them on the web I never thought there was copyright infringement.

I saw this idea to represent a rooftop without having to do the hole building. I think I am going to go with something like it.



And I still have to work on darkening the blood. I didn't darken it enough.

All done with the soldiers.






And decided to add this casualty, modified to the correct ethnicity. It is a Paracel figure with a Hornet head:

Yeah, I guess I was just waiting for that. Nor are the webbing, fatigues, or the combat boots, because everybody assumes it goes back to Gothic Serpent. So I am not trying to date my dio, but the yufan figures looked so cool that I said what the hell.

Very cool subject, and nicely done. Small niggle - neither the diamond shaped NOD mount nor the Ops Core were in use back then.

Marcos,
This looks very nice. I especially like the subtle weathering on the bird. One note-I might darken the blood on the wounded troop. Im on blood thinners and spend a lot of time in the brush and bleed like a stuck pig. Other than where it is "flowing" it turns blackish almost immediately. Up to you though
Jeff
