Great! :yeah: As always .... again a fantastic diorama of you. And there is much to see again.
A great tank, a beautifully painted aircraft and disturbed love scene. What more do we need? :-D
I love the colorful butterflies and the fancy bird of paradise. Congratulations !!!!!

Australian gardening, this is how you trim the palm fronds and aerate the soil.

Has the woman been disturbed or rescued?

Great dynamic scene with nice details. The palm tree, bird of paradise, butterflies and flowers are all excellent. And I like the effect of the moving propeller.

Excellent work and very nice unusual subject! :thumbup:
I didn't expected (or perhaps I did a bit :winky: ) that some of my little "naked paradise birds" would withdraw the combat spirit and some soldiers off from their warlike duties! :mrgreen:

A great scene once again, wiking! For the older Dutch generation, it is not hard to guess of where this scene takes place. New Guinea, which was part Dutch and Australian. One minor thing. The bird would be long gone when the plane is so close. For the rest, it is a superb scene. :yeah:

@Mr. Cryns
Well described. Thanks.

@Ben90
Oh! Thank you.

@Phersu
Thanks for your comment and modeling a whole "paradise clothing" set like this.

@mickey mouse
You are right.
I was running out of bird with wingspan. Stenfalk where are you?
And on top these paradise bird is far to big compared to the original. :oops:
Normally it is hard to dedicate a place by nature in the Pacific theater. Sand and palms.
Thank you for your comment.

Oh goodie, for once I get to criticise a Wiking diorama :-D
With 2 x 20mm Hispano-Suiza cannon and 4 x 0.303 Brownings on the Boomerang you're a bit short of impact effects :P





I'll not mention the slang word for cat. ;-)

True!
Critic accepted.
The other 20mm Hispano-Suiza cannon of his wing mate are outside the base.
Ok, let me ... ah! He was right now low on 0.303 Brownings ammo. See the double black smoke at the wing.
I think one Hispano-Suiza indicate what happen.
By the way your pic :yeah: are from a you tube film that I check for reference too.
That`s why I choose the yellow nose. Red was too dark for the green brown paint I decided.
I like the sound of the looping downward. And it is described why in the film.
The lettering (including the national symbol) I think that up myself.
