    Here are some pictures of the finished build.


    I hope you like the selection, and thanks for all your support and comments during the making of the diorama.


    These first shots were taken inside. I painted a white board with a bit of blue for the back ground.

    Then the sun came out and produced a superb sky and great shadows - not for long, but long enough.

    The Lebonese graffiti is supposed to read "Go Home" I apologize if it's wrong.

    They look real Ron and you can't get better than that, I can see another kit manufacturer pinching any one of those for their box lids mate.

    Just spent an excellent w/end+ parked up in the camper van in frozen field by a river. Son number two came with his family to visit us.....Said we were mad, and he was "Bl**dy freezing!".......The wus!


    Anyway, I've just got back home and read all your fantastic posts on my finished diorama. What great reading! Thank you all so much for taking the time to post such flattering comments. I appreciate every one of them.


    Thanks again,


    Ron

    Ron. This is one of the best dios I have seen this year. Some of these photos look like real life.. that in itself is the biggest compliment to your work mate. Masterpiece mate.
