Thank you! I hope that the new photos will last longer, and you will see, there are two more planters this time :P

Beautiful Jean. All you need to complete the scene is a 1/43 picnic basket.....and of course a 1/43 bottle of Pouilly-Fumé.

Jean, it's a lot of pleasure for me to see these photos. The two merks are stunning and the whole four cars blend in wonderfully with that Diorama. I can't remember if the planters were painted last time, but they look excellent finished :)

Thanks for your kind comments! The two Mercedes will be - presumably - the most complicated and baroque models in my collection. At least I do not see any other models with so many details and challenges... :)

I think I've already told that this is the "home" of Tintin & Milou (and Captain Haddock and Prof. Bienlein...), my favourite comic series. I still need some folks gathering around, hope that I'll make this, soon...

Thank you! Yes, the planters already were painted. Step by step I'm making eight units, below you can see the new ones with white roses.

Although today we've had a very VERY dark winter day, I couldn't resist to take the new Packards "out" for a show ride, here are the results:

Thank you! I have to admit, quite impressive, those Americans...

I think most of you have followed my making the two Voisins, and naturally French cars must be shown in front of a French castle :D ! And I have added some "goodies", the remaining two rose planters are finished:

...and as the scenery always looked a little lifeless...

The diorama gets better all the time, a perfect backdrop for your exquisite creations! The Voisins turned out wonderfully, two more you can be really proud of.

Love it Jean, brings a smile to my face, what a life to live in those days.
