Neuling Very realistic scenery with top painted vehicles and figures! Here you can feel the cold.

Jean-Michel Tilquin Thanks Neuling. My first attempt with snow, I'm quite happy with the result I must say. I think other Ardennes projects will follow soon!

Treehugger I like how the diorama is mostly the figures and the vehicles, raging tall so to speak.
Btw, we can now apparently flip though the albums with the arrow keys. Though, using the arrows keys to correct typed text is an issue there though, because it apparently activates the album photo flip feature as well, but I suspect this will be improved over time.
Derek Huggett Really good Jean-Michel, particularly the figures - some of the best IMHO. Model photos would look unbelievably real if you could use direct natural light and a faux background (that is NOT meant as a criticism, just an observation of no real importance!)

Mathieu Derek, it's just to remind us it is a model not a real picture. Confusion might be pretty with such masterfull demonstration. Well done

Jim J Great recreation of a very interesting scene! Love the detail and add-ons on the vehicles.

Jean-Michel Tilquin Thanks mates! I appreciate the compliments, especially about the figures because it's the area I'm most trying to improve at the moment! @Derek: yes, I think I'll use the background idea for a next project... always room for improvement and new ideas!

Stuart Martin Love the MT jackets on the recovery crew, are those figures a kit or scratch built? As a ex Recovery Mechanic I really appreciate the story being told.

Jean-Michel Tilquin Hi Stuart, the figures are from the 25pdr crew set from Bronco (CB35108). Tip: if you click on a project, you can see all kits linked to it. Thanks for your interest anyway!
Neuling Top build with excellent weathering. Seems to be a good kit?

Jean-Michel Tilquin Thanks Rui and Neuling. Yes, a good kit, but suffering (imho) of the Miniart philosophy: if you can break down a piece, break it down, resulting in lots of tiny pieces with little added value. But the result is good, good fit and a special plus for the tracks.
Logan Eden Good Afternoon, Jean-Michel Love everything about the work, but the one that is the greatest is the MiniArt Dozer. The engine green is spot on and sets off the engine from the rest of the Dozers olive drab. Even the leak on the filter housings, the "CATERPILLAR" in black on the side of the block and all the rest has captured it. Phenomenal execution of weathering. Catch Ya, Logan

Jean-Michel Tilquin Thanks all mates. @Logan: thanks for the detailed analysis, I'm pleased you saw it all!
