Working on the (vegetation)

Palm trunks and a big tree that pushed out the corner of the building(more limbs and roots will be added)

Haven't done much trees i so it's a trial and error .

What are you using for the leaves? The making of the vegetation is one thing, but what I really like is your placement of everything. Totally convincing mate. Oh YES!!

Just looks like your standard Marine Chopper to me. They always complained that their gear was falling to bits compared to the Army gear. I love the idea of the Japanese tank rusting away in the middle of it. Gives the idea that these poor people had had so many wars waged against them. The splintering on those rotors is excellent

Definately liking what I'm seeing here.
Very impressed with your vegetation building techniques and all building methods for that matter.
Will be checking in a bit more regularly to follow this project.

Added more ground and rubble , Palm Trees that were decapitated by the rotors of the Helicopter
And another small part of the temple complex.

The palms will change their position...... this is not the final setting. :huh:


























Dreading the day when i start panting this ,not sure how to tackle it
Only thing i do know it will be primed first in grey

The great fun of the placement of things. Looking amazing Maarten. You get an idea of how big the statures are with the chopper laying there. Has the chopper blown up like in the movies or just spilt it's fuel?
