Hi,

I'd like to show a recent diorama of mine. I was able to acquire the special edition meng Abrams tank with the Trump model. I needed to have a think about what to do with the model, simply building the tank and painting Trump would be to easy. I'd like to integrate them.

The answer was also easy, think Trump think wall, so I made a small wall and stated adding things I associated with Trump.








I had fun making it and I'm rather pleased with the result, so I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Interesting diorama. A few jump out to me, the goggles on the crew have no straps and you have no drop cords for the vending machines. To me the area would be clean and secure, no water bottles, coolers and food containers near the tank. They would have police called the fence line but I could see some last minute trash blowing in. Lastly the weapons, secret service and others would not allow weapons near the President no which party you prefer. Heck Generals and other politicians wouldn’t like it. At most you could have the weapon but not no bolt but it’s easier with no weapons from there point of view.

Excellent work Joris!!! Now, having worked that southern fence/wall for many years, it use to be WWII landing matt, but the new wall is much like you have it here, close enough.

I like how you set the mood when the Pres is present, you nailed it, especially around the troops!!! Just call it artistic license, imagination is the key.

BTW, the south side of the fence is pretty trashy, literally.


Cheers, Ski.

Hi Joris,

Ths is a perfect piece of humour. Although the scene does look sterile, you grabbed the Trump-meaning:

Think Trump Think Wall - Think Tank

Congratulations, I love this dio very much!
