Lovely playful scene with lots going on. :thumbup:

The Elephant wash day blues. Sounds like a song Gunnar?????

That could be Benno with that pull along toy!
:winky: " No touching the Ammo!"

As this adventure carries along I feel those captive ladies should be freed,
but by whom is the question?

That looks like Kekso needs help! Poor boxed in fellow.

All trying to get home before the holiday rush?

The elastic band reminds me of an aircraft I built in my youth, its still in flight somewhere.
;-) It was last seen flying over Muscat Oman in 1972!
:mrgreen: So it had been in flight over 10 years. :shock:

:coffee: Great Stuff. BB

As always, your imagination has no limits, Wiking. You show it in every new diorama, better than the previous one with almost no exception. :yeah:

I love the great variety of figures used, each of them perfectly coupled in the general composition.
:shock:

You need a hundred eyes to capture all the details included in the global scene (the snake entering the plane, the pickpocket in the passengers queue, the elephant used as a hose, the varied luggage on the runway, the "Atlantic scribe" repairing the damaged wing, the native sorcerer blessing the plane, and so on). :love:

In short: you are a master, Wiking, my idol of diorama makers. When I grow up I want to be like you. :notworthy:

My very best compliments. :-D

Santi.

Nice work again with so many details. Forgive my ignorance, but is there any story behind it?
And I wouldn't ride in that airplane :xd:

Hahaha! Fantastic! I was laughing aloud when I saw the rubber band propulsion. Great Irony! And many more nice jokes and amazing details.

One would almost forget it is nice modelling too! :yeah: :yeah:
