So tonight I managed to get the trees reflocked, blasted with hairspray and then given a couple of coats of Matt varnish to try and seal the whole lot down.

Not exactly the world’s best photo, but I think you can see what I was aiming for.

I also made a start on the animals, I couldn’t be bothered to try to get them undercoated white, so instead I just brushed on some Foundry ‘Canvas A’ paint. In doing so I sadly snapped off one of the feet off a wolf.

He is the wolf nearest to the rhino, his foot is the grey lump sitting next to the right hand wold. Luckily I didn’t drop it so a bit of superglue fixed the problem after the photo was taken (I finished undercoating everything too).

I am starting to get a little worried as to how this whole thing is going to look when finished. Not sure why, probably just cold feet as it has taken me so long…

And finally, shock horror, my blog has now had, at last check, 6012 visitors with 19200 views. That is pretty amazing if I say so myself. I never ever, ever though I would get 1000 visitors. So a big thank you to everyone who has popped by and to everyone who keeps coming back. I really do appreciate it. ❣️

  1. Cold feet when you can see the ned of a diorama, never heard tell … lol. I think it happens to everyone; partly you don’t want the fun to stop and at the same time you’re getting a burned out on the typic at hand, throw in a heavy dash of “ooooh, I could add this and that and this and that …”, and there you have it – cold feet.
    Never fear, my friend, it will look great, and the bits that don’t meet you self imposed higher standards, no-one other than yourself will ever know they are there!
