I think you have made a beautiful little scene here Miguel which has been executed perfectly !
I have always said that so much can be made from just tthrowing some things together that are lying around the house or outside in the garden, and you have proven my point again.
Great article mate...love it !

Great article with fabulous finished result, I have used the Woodland scenics water eeffects and realistic water and know they can be difficult to use but you did a great job.

Very evocative diorama, plus I love the use of real rocks!
Nice article - I have not seen these water effects illustrated so clearly before, particularly the waterfall variety.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

I would like to thank Brian in particular who proofreaded the article cause me engrish not so gude! He also helped me tidying up the pictures... cheers for that! ;)

@Morgul_king: you can find the putty almost everywhere, from Stapples Office Center to Pingo Doce. Even some school material shops sell it... and its quite cheap, but very usefull. The Woodland Scenics stuff (and other brands) I bought in my usual hobby store, Mundo Fantasma, but you can find it in any rail modelling store... Try C.C. Brasilia, there's a couple of stores there. ;)

(nice to have a fast proofreader ... Hope mine reads this ;-)

It's a wonderful article with so many steps, nice description and good pics that one can easily follow the progress and hopefully one day soon puts the advices in real projects :-)

As such liquid bottle water is often sold out - despite the high price - I have not experimented with is a lot yet, but your waterfall shows what nice effects one can create!

from the DVD reference pic you've chosen you have done right to make the waterfall look that much white (at your gallery I had found it too bright compared to Gollum, but now it looks alright)

I really like this diorama! a small cosy oasis for poor smeagol(lum)...

Nice job, Mac, The water effect and lighting is brilliant. It seems you are really getting into this Diorama making.

Can't wait to see what you get up to next.

A wonderful article for a wonderful diorama, Mac. :)

You really are a sly old fox, aren't you? First showing us tiny models using that old camera of yours, all the while honing your skills. Then, a new camera, and all of a sudden, brilliance! Now we're getting all this great stuff, you just keep on producing. Well, thanks, Mac, it's great to see! :)

Thank you Farmer... been a while since I did this one (actually doesnt even exist anymore and it was sort of remade in a much smaller fashion) and I know that I could do a lot better now.

Anyway, the voting function has been disabled sometime ago. No need to keep looking for it. :lol:
