Hello All
Finally got there. Finished the diorama . Still might add a few more items of rubbish & wood etc under the ramp.
I shall be taking it to a show next weekend ( Milton keynes) my 1st show of this year. So apart from the guy's on here no one else has seen the finished diorama.
After taking the picture's & sorting out which 1's to put on here for you guy's I have to admit I feel very Pleased with the result.
It's taken a lot of research & then hard work converting & scratchbuilding to see the end result.
I have a list which I can post if anyone's interested of what work was done in the back dating .
I have to say a Very Big Thankyou to Every One that Helped me in what ever way. Without you guy's I'd still be trying to work out what to do. Hope I've done this link right.

Ok, so when can you ship it to me for my Exhibit? What a super job you have done in recreating this boat. I love the detail and the men you used are awesome. Where did you get the men for this boat? They look so real. You should be very proud of your efforts here. Your hard work and attention to detail has really paid off in a first rate Diorama. Ok, like Ed said I want one, only with a different boat. Good luck at the show, you should do very well.........

Hi
Yeh I'm very proud of it it's better than I was expecting in some ways.
Frank the crew come from a mixture of manufactures. Dragon Afrika corps, US Marines. Velinden Afrika corps, ADV US marines & Tamiya British 8th Army. mainly so that I could get the shorts. most had replacement heads from the Hornet range.
Cant wait to see the response from the people at the show this weekend, should be very interesting .
