two unpainted PREISER figurine beside a miniatur parcelApart from Alexander we wanted to place two more miniature people on our diorama: Dieter the postman and Curt, one of the happy customers. The PREISER figures were unpainted; the postman was actually a dancer and the customer a traveller carrying two bags (we cut them off carefully...). You can find out  here how we made the parcel.

miniature postman delivering a parcelIt didn't take more than a little bit of paint and creativity to transform the bopping PREISER figure into 'Dances with Parcels'.

PREISER figure with a yellow carrier bagOnce the traveller had been separated from his two suitcases (we did that with a sharp Stanley knife) he got a yellow carrier bag instead which we had made from polypropylene foil (real carrier bag).

election poster 'Diethmar Frueh, DCU' which is fixed to a lamp postWe created the fictional election poster ourselves (computer and colour printer). Its legs are made from very thin pine profiles. Where suitable, we 'planted some fast-growing weeds' (green foam flocks from the BUSCH flower and planter kit) in order to make the diorama even more realistic.
