I always saw diorama building as one of the most challenging parts of plastic modeling.  The capacity of taking a mental image and turning it into a 3-d scenario was a long way ahead of my skills.
A few years ago a learned about this Miniart kits for diorama building. At first, the idea of working with vacuum formed parts was something that kept me away from this kit as i think that this type of model forms lack detail and are too difficult to work with. Just recently a model company started to import a few of these kits to Brazil. As the price became more attractive, i decided to give a chance to these kits. I was not disappointed!
I build it at first as an out-of-the-box project, just to see what i could get. It was a nice project, but of course not very realistic. Then recently i decide to add some ruble around the ruined house and improve the grass and other minor details of the kit. Here you can see how the two projects ended.
