Check out the Dioramas I've done in 2020 below.
While out on their Sunday drive/ride, Elijah Hamilton, his wife and their children attend church, along with some of their neighbors' kids. Sam Cobra has given up a life of crime and became a priest. His brother, Sean, also has become a servant of the Lord and takes care of the church property and tends to the livestock and graveyard.
Seth Gibson (Jed's father) delivers the new cow to the Circle X Ranch. Johnny West's father, Clarence West, takes delivery and seems to really like her
Bass Reeves had a small homestead in his early years where he worked the farm in between his law enforcement days. Here he is with his wife, Jennie, and two of their small children.
They went on a buffalo hunt fully intending to bring one home. They snuck up on the herd...and then they saw The Albino! They gave chase only to have The Albino turn on them in defiance. After much thought, not wanting to disrupt this legend's herd, they decided to let them be and will try another day with a different herd.
Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch make their way to the town of Appaloosa.
The ghosts of Fort Apache still roam.
I got this fort many months ago (my first one ever) and just put it together. I did not realize it was SO huge! The figures have the dump heads I got from a friend, Terry Ryder. Dump heads are head that were dug up at the site of the old Marx factory where they dumped the rejects. The "Powder House" was built by my friend, Mykol Blackwell. There's even a ghost horse still hanging around
Just a few shots of custom Native American children. The gorgeous drums were made by my friend, Lori Bradley.
Here are a few pictures from around the farm. Jed Gibson takes his kids on a pony ride with the new Shetlands, and John Murphy rides out on his horse, Frank. Jay West feeds the goats, and Johnny West tends to his pigs who just had their piglets.
