At 15 days from Saumur model show Contest (France !), a decision had to be taken.
Finally, I would not put my Reachstaker RT240 on the diorama, I would not have time to finish it and the job on it does not deserve a sloppy finish by a tight timing. The model even deserves a single vehicle presentation. To drown him in a big decoration would not pay homage to him.

I think however keep the container on the diorama.

So I used my B plan with a new 4x4 (Matchbox !!!!) added and a little more "survivors" in order to give a little tidy battle.

The following:

The dumpsters are finished :

And survivors taken from AlexMiniatures figures references. Some are modified, one is not paint for the moment.

Waiting for more figures, hope they come asap !!

Such a nice figures you are using.
With your paint and especially your use of hard shadows, the proportions and the foldings in the clothing of these people look brilliant.

And great dumpsters you made.

When I saw the photos of the container handle I thought the same as you do now, "too good to be just scenery in a big diorama", think you've done well not to include it, it deserves a display for himself, although to be honest, almost too what you are doing for that diorama deserves a display of its own.
The f150 raptor from matchbox was a great idea, maisto have a good one too, but have not interior and even when is in the propper width is a little short in length. may be a little of dust with the airbrush In the lower parts could improve it a little more.
Check n the cargo box, the green box and the jerry cans could be Ok in one of my dioramas, but for the quality of yours may deserve some touch-ups.
The dumpster are really impressive!!
The figures are getting perfect.
Think it is really a contest work,
You still have time, take it easy, I'm sure it will make waves in Saumur or any contest,
Is the kind of work to publish in a magazine specialized in modeling as well.

Thanks Carlos.

The pick up is not made by Matchbox but by Majorette and done for 1/72 scale.

The interior is not so badly detailed as that and anyway, it is almost invisible. With a little dust on the windows, it will be perfectly illusion. The only rough details are the rims and the hitch.
The cargo box has been slightly modified since the last pictures. (Last pictures where the painting was not finished).
