Cool. You have them assembled and blocked. They will add a lot to the “storyline “

I applied the wash on the two soldiers. I think I will add some highlights with drybrushing. But for this scale I am quite happy. Thought a closeup on a photo doesn't look to good, when looking at it 'normally' they just look fine. Or its my eyesight [frown]
Also started creating the base. First step was getting an Ikea pictureframe and glued the backside in the frame. Then used that green stuff for creating the first step for the base. Will add some DAS clay to smooth the whole look and hopefully it will start looking like a beach.
But I have to get me some wooden side panels first. So not much progress in the next few days I think!

Nice work. Soldiers looking great. The wash brings them to life and so much more dimensional. Good start on the base. Frames make a nice finished look to the base and you don’t have cut any mitre joints.
HAPPY EASTER to you and your family also!

Funny how that works. The camera macro or zoom “sees”
Much more than the eye. Since everyone viewing your model including you does not have zoom vision, your model work is safe.

OK, this is going to be the most challenging part of the dio. applying the sand to the base and then actually place the plane in the sand. Hope its going to stick properly so I can apply the water. 
I use AK diorama series 'Beach sand' and using AK's Youtube series as a reference. Hope its going to work out just fine.

Put the plane in the sand and now hope for the best!

That looks really nice, fantastic work.  It also looks like a tub of ice-cream on the side!

So, another update.

I wasn't really happy how the beach looked after it completely dried. Some cracks and inconsistency on the sandy surface. So after applying the balsa wood border I applied another topcoat of the AK Beach Sand. And when that was fully cured I applied some different sand colors to create some depth. I hope it will turn out OK when I will apply the water.

I am in doubt if I will add some seaweed on the beach and in the water. Maybe it will give some extra details but on the other hand I don't wanna ruin the overal look. Maybe it wil get a little messy and somehow I like the clean beach look.  What are your thoughts on that, guys?

Here are the pics. Paint is still drying so its a little glossy/wet look.

I agree with not adding seaweed in the water or the beach. You want to keep the focus on the plane and let the whole diorama just be the “frame” of the presentation. My art teacher always told me never let the “frame” overpower the subject of the art piece.
