Thanks to all, I´m very glad to see you like my diorama. The river is clear poliester resin (named "cronolita" in Spain, something similar to envirotex), layer after layer (no more than 3-5 mm each time), with some drops of brown paint (oils or better tamiya acrilics), less paint each time, and the last layer without paint; just before it cured, make the little waves with a stick or metalic rod (try apart from your dio for practising). The foam is just acrilic artist gel (heavy gloss) from a US Cía named Golden Artists Colours Inc., layer after layer, picking each time for the jumping drops..... I´ll try to make some kind of article about the "jungle"...ç Thanks¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

Oh well, I already posted about this twice, might as well do it a third :-) Masterpiece! Nuff said. Trungtin2010, go to the figure forum for the Seal painting technique. I happened to start a threat a few days ago about it myself.

Excellent diorama !! The water and foliage are probably among the best I have ever seen in a diorama. This was a true pleasure to look at ! Hope to see more things of equal quality over here....these sort of things always boost my inspiration and motivation !

Nothing short of absolutely amazing!! One of the most realistic Dio's I've ever seen. Any how-to's would be greatly appreciated.

This has got to be the coolest Vietnam War diorama I've seen quite a while. I posted on this before, but every time I see this diorama, I see something else even more intertesting. Well done, and FANTASTIC work !! Cheers !!! Alpen

Howdy csago, As has been said, all of the ingredients in you dio are splendid! Truly inspiring attention to detail. You obviously....'felt'...each and every one of it's measures. 'Impressed' is all I can say at the moment. But, in an attempt to not be the 'umpteenth' voice here....your talent really shines with your minipulation of the surrounding water. Obviously your 'internal' visual skills are highly attuned, as is your visual 'memory'. I have the feeling (because I don't want to speak for any one else), that most of us are seeing that your water just 'feels' right. Good on ya csago!...Bueno! Also, before I sign-off. What i think everyone is kindly requesting from you is a written 'tech' article regarding your application of your 'water' treatment. I don't think I'm going out on a very long limb here when I say, you would be making a very large crowd of fans happy by recreating a small example of your magnificent 'water' work by doing it again, and taking pictures as you go. Many of us would be elevated by your taking the time to do so...... Tread. Please excuse my 'forwardness', but my believe is, you do not know, unless you simply 'ask'........
