Wow. This is one of the best dioramas I have seen so far, but it had to cost a fortune.

Great job, if I can ask, what brand are the ducks? I know elastoline makes some but I love the flying ones. Thanks for the whole layout photos, you did a fantastic job on each part of the diorama.

Erik, it's absolutely fantastic! It's so incredible, I love the birds lifting off from the water, really realistic!!

thanks for posting...what detail and realism in this project. MMM, makes me wonder about the challenge of my African diorama. I love your water...so realistic looking. What product did you use for the water? I have SceneArama water.

thank you so much ,guys!

sorry, for my double posting-that wasn't on purpose(maybe Helen, you can fix it and make it one-thank you )

my animal figurines are all custom made in 1/72 ,by using scaled down (shrunken) parts from all kind (mostly vintage brands) and self sculpted parts
- sounds a little weird , I know.......
for my water I use resin from the company "smooth-on" and in particular its called "crystal clear"
I mix a little bit of color in and create the impression of steep water by painting the base from dark to light

It's an absolutely beautiful diorama....and the effect you were able to create with the water truly impressive. I'll be storing the "smooth-on" information for the day I finally do a diorama myself ;3

There is another product that I also use, it is called Magic Water, I like it best of all of the brands I have tried because you can make it more then 1/2 inch deep per pour, most are 1/8 inch to 1/4 at the most per pour so it can take two or three times as long to finish a water feature. Just remember like Kungi mentioned, don't pour the resin clear, it doesn't look natural unless you are doing a clear stream or artificial pond type display, most water is muddy or has algae growing in it so the water is murky.

Kungi, that is a fantastic diorama, you did a spectacular job on it, you should try some larger scales, with your attention to detail you could do some incredible work
