See if this works for you Anthony.
I used the D handshape from ASL which is an open fist rather than a closed one.
I showed the movement down+out as your verbal description shows that.  You showed just out.
  Movement goes out, but not down.
Is there a change of facial expression (like an open mouth or raised eyebrows?)

HI Val and others,

i have put a new sign in, please have a look. I want to make sure it is
clear for everybody.

I touch my nose with my finger and then the D-hand goes diagonaly forward
down about 1 foot (30cm).

It means the concept of "amazing, unbelievable, huh, wow", and is used in a
variety of different settings.

1 little girl said to mum: I went for the first time on a carneval ride
today? mum signs this sign

2 a bird attacks a cat from behind, and the cat flips a 180 degrees not
over his body, but under his legs and attacks the bird. a Deaf person sees
this happening and signs this sign.

You may get the gist of this sign.

Thanks for your feedback
