Default Dioramas in the Garden

I make dioramas that can be easily and quickly placed in the garden layout to add interest to the line. Heres three of them;

The Marketplace;


The Lavoir (public washing place)


The Gypsy camp

Wouldn't want them in my back yard though.

Seriously, all the scenes are good but the Gypsy camp does look the best.

Thanks for your comments guys. I too like the gypsy camp best. I tend to put a bit more detail into things that will be in the forefront. Rightly or wrongly i dont see the point in putting in too much for something in the background (as in real life I guess)

Heres a close-up of the market diorama. The dancing bear and gypsy lady were made for me by Clive Tucker of Portsmouth;

Nice detailing. It seems the Gypsy lady is blind.

That's one nasty looking guide dog.

I think its a bear. Never heard of a guide bear before, but i suppose it could double up as a gaurd dog (Bear).
