O My! That poor fellow being shoved down those stairs is certainly not a happy Bunny, i guess he groped the fruit on offer but had no means to pay.
:cowboy: Praps E, might be a Reb spy who hasn't been paid for a while?
The mean brute of a fat Troll,` Don`t come around here with i o u`scripts signed by Jefferson C Davis', he shouts out.
The two fancy but not free girls shout out,` You`re not laughing now are you?'

`Hold them horses 4 a while, while i talk with these two Mutts! '
More dogs please?

:mrgreen: i guess Clint Eastwood, would sure paint this little town red ?

The Officer is far to busy eyeing the ladies,that he has missed the chance to capture the Reb Spy.

The ladies ,they sure do look cute enough to dance right off the page.
Here they are being photographed, i wonder if someone could find that upside down inside out glass negative and print the Forum a picture ?

That little guy must be from Preiser ? Reminds me of Tin Tin, but where is Snowy?

And as the band played on.... Funky Butt or not.....
:cowboy: `I suppose one could easily grape ones way into having a forest in no time at all?'

:coffee: i Love it all Gunnar. :thumbup: Westwards Ho`oooo The Ruckus BB

Well, fortunately though your figures suffered the puppy's attack, your diorama is excellent . :-D

Reminds me of Josey Whales.

‘ You going pull them pistols or whistle Dixie’?

Imaginative stuff.

Best wishes,

Awesome work Gunnar! It seems like you're expert in something else besides eating and drinking in the forest :D :D :D

Great scene, a real slice of life and good fun. :-D

That figure makes an excellent Cat House bouncer and the Airfix WWI German makes a very good stable hand (the way he's dressed reminds me of David Caradine).I love the two working ladies, and the two who look like they've never had to lift a finger. :mrgreen:

The grapevine works well, nearly every western movie has a tree that looks just like that; I expect someone will be along in a minute to throw a noose over it.

I like the dogs.
And the one who step the stairway in the - silly walks - style down.

What a nice and lively scene, looks very entertaining. The figures are painted so well, I first couldn't make up my mind what I like best in this diorama. But then I settled for the tree - a little masterpiece, so life-like that it looks like real vegetation!

Nice one! The hobby needs more Western characters,
this one could perhaps work;

Thanks! Great figure! And the right scale. Would have looked on the street. Maybe in the future! And caged out of way for the puppy! :-D

Great mixture of figures from different manufacturers, Susofrick. :notworthy:

A funny and well balanced composition. Congratulations. :thumbup:
