Great work again Carlos!

Extremely good detail painting. Especially Cyborg. Mad Hatters coat is fascinating: a mixture between an illusionists suit and a desert camouflage pattern. Bunny Boy is most remarkable: a very strong caricature and his face looks much more human now it has been painted. Alice's facial lines are a little bit too pronounced to make her look real pretty but okay, she's only 23mm high. :-D

Why don't you crop (=cut away all excessive space around) the images before posting them? Then it would look like a full screen macro. Most pictures you took are sharp enough to achieve that.

Anyhow, well done Carlos.

The hands in my way of thinking give us the true sense,
and scale of these tiny figures which look Buzz-Saw Great!
And well fit for any Mad Hatters Tea Party.

Around that awesome table, are riddles to be solved.

"Another cup is to be poured, So all change seats now."
said the Hatter, with the Ten & Sixpence price tag stuck in his hat,as if it were a feather.
Alice, cared little for the Tea,or the seat swopping! BB

Many thanks for your comments fellows, Mr cryns, I made the "crop" in the phtobucket album, but more than these, images became blured, think I have to use a real cammera with the propper macro and not my celular phone cammera.
Sorry, for the next it will bve better...well, if my teen daughter lend me her cammera (think better she will rent it for me)

Beano, hope a 70's jaguar E-type cpuld e agood table for this little band "tea" party.
Im working in that now.

Well, the diorama base is a poblem, I never made a postapocalpityc diorama,
And this is complicated because it must also be part of the "Alice in wonderland" story, it must be obviusy british, think i will start with a car parking or something else.

Carlos, I have put together some links for you. Maybe you like one or the other idea.

Idea: An abandoned house. Windows and doors nailed with planks. A high wire fence separates the building from the sidewalk and the street. A rusted London phone box on the sidewalk as a sign of a past civilization. A dented and old-age (English) car stands in front of it.The victory celebration of Alice and her friends takes place on the street.

Ingredients:

With a little conversion you can make from it a beautiful red (rusty and dilapidated) London phone box... The things still stand in London today. Appropriate!

Wire mesh fence separating a dilapidated house from the street .....

To the fence one could hang modern warning signs.

Accessories, which can stand or lie on the street ....

And a bit of rubble ....

Now only the dilapidated house is missing. Build by yourself from foam cardboard? You only need a part of the front of the house and a small corner.

Problem, all 'ingredients' are in 1/72 and not in 1/76 . I'm not sure if that fits the size?? In 1/76 I can not find such accessories ...... :(
