This my latest project, after trying to copy G.R's wonderful grunts with two of my own , i thought why not build a little diarama to set them off . So started to search for some idea's on the net, i would love to say that this idea was my own but it's a chap from another 1/6 forum, i just elaborated on it, so here it is hope you all like it.

the panels in the front and back apex are made of card that i weaved , i wanted to use rush table mats but they are out of fashion apparently lol. The walls and floor are bamboo place mats.

Nicely done, Taffy!

This takes me back to Spring, 1966. At that point I was the proud owner of my first G.I. Joe Action Soldier. I had him, a bamboo stick placemat and the film Heaven Knows Mr Alison for inspiration.

Later on it was Lt Robin Crusoe, USN that was inspiration for me and my placemat.

All theses years later I have both movies on DVD but wonder whatever happened to that placemat.

Hey , hey.........Look at you Mr ! All done & looking so very impressive mate.
Taffy you have certainly pushed the boat out on this & excelled in it. I think this is truly stunning my friend. I hope you do this the FULL justice it deserves when it comes to the pictures. Make the background up to fit it in perfectly & show this for what it really is! A work of genius. Bally great work Taff !! Be so very proud mate , I would be.

Thanks everyone for the great comments, i did not get the ramshackle look i was looking for with the hooch, thinking of giving it to the grandson to play with for a while, that should sort it lmao. Just need to find the right location then i can take some pictures of it with my figures, cheers again everyone .

Brilliant stuff there well done,too late now but those rush mats they sell as beach mats could have been used in the absence of the dinner placemat.
