Stephen, Gregory and RAGIII thank you.
Now is time to decide how will be looking my diorama.
First setting is like on in these pictures.





















One of my friend offered me a different setting, in fact it looks better. Soon will try to take pictures.
Now before me it is the most difficult task I have to do the base with grass and sand. On some of the photos I've seen dioramas with floor boards on which stood a plane, but I've not seen the pictures from the period of WWI. Maybe some of you have seen such a picture.

This arrangement looks great. It will be interesting to see the other you spoke of to compare the two!

Juan and RAGIII, thank you, nice to read your opinions.
Lately, I have not had too much free time.
Every free hour I spend on work on my diorama.
I made new wooden crane.







Also I made new table.

I started doing the basis for the diorama.
The first time I plant grass.  ;)





To reveal the engine, I moved the ladder to the other side of the aircraft. Wooden crane also changed its position.

















At the time of Christmas and New year, works were stopped due to the arrival of my 2.5 year old grandson.
After this time I will be finished my diorama.

I like the new arrangement much better! Could you give a description of the materials you used for the grass and ground work and how you applied them?

My dear friends I'm sorry that I'm just now thank you for your feedback.
But the life of a pensioner is more time consuming than I thought.

RAG III grass is planted using an electrostatic method, by means of self-made equipment.

Only now I managed to order and install a frame for my diorama.





Now it will be painting this frame.
Then the final assembly will take place.

Thank you Ed.

Last night, cheered by my dog, I started the final assembly of my diorama.







This morning, all the elements of the diorama were in place.























Now I would like to show details.
I'm very proud of my engine.


























































All the wooden elements except the two ladders I made myself. Wherever possible, I screwed it with Taurus Models screws.  ;D
The first time I painted figurines.
For the first time I also planted grass using equipment to kill flies and mosquitoes and metal strainer.  8)
While doing dioramas I gained a lot of experience, I think it will not be the last diorama.
I have mastered many new modeling techniques.
Now I have the knowledge how to make figurines, make wooden items, and of course I know how to plant grass.  ;D
My diorama does not have a pattern, on a particular scene from a photo, this is my vision, but based on the different photos I saw on the internet, journals and books.

Taking part in this GB mobilized me to finish this diorama.
Thank you very much Des.

Adam.
