Cool diorama.  Nice work.

Can I ask what the guy is doing?  I can't see if he is holding anything.  It looks kinda like he is cracking his knuckles.  

Just keep picking away at it...

 He was a mechanic that I use when I was mocking it up . I actually used an American dioramas man and dog that is holding a frisbee ... I have just been pulling photos off my computer and uploading them ...

Nice work, Dale. It makes me pine for camping weather.

Looks like he's on his cellphone! He went to camping out in the middle of nowhere,  so he could start texting messages. Hehe
