Superb, much better than just a portaloo :D

Ha Ha! I had quite the time getting that little sub-scene together. The hardest part was finding a suitable figure. In the end I used the one below. The angles of the arms are not 100% correct for what he is supposed to be up to. But it is close enough, when seen from behind. 😉  Apart from that, I filed away at his parka to make it more like a shorter jacket and loosing the hood. The hard hat is from the original (sitting) driver that came included with the Hasegawa excavator kit. The reflective striping is plain household aluminum foil.

I don't know what it's like in Sweden but shouldn't you have half a dozen other blokes leaning on shovels or drinking tea :giggle:....

Yes, that would be more like it. Not tea though. Rather coffee in paper cups.  But in my scene they are all off on an early lunch, leaving the poor driver behind. 🙂

Excellent diorama. That digger operator was on the ball, he did a fine job not damaging those underground services! The comfort break he is having is oh so true as well.:lol:

For extra added realism, you should also add a half dozen Council workers leaning on their shovels staring aimlessly into the trench as well.:thumbsup:
