Well done 👍 Nice Dio.
This looks very good.
I agree with everyone above. Another surprise from you! Nice idea, very well implemented! Colors and weathering are top.
Great diorama. It almost looks like they are going to get a telling off for driving on the general's lawn.
Great diorama 👍

I'm enjoying every part of this scene. May I ask where the cobbled base came from? Home made? (I recognised the shed and wall, but not the base).
Fantastic looking diorama. Awesome details, and I love that half-track! 👍👍👍
I fully agree with James. A very creative and lifelike composition showing attractive vehicles and figures. The kits seem to be superior to the Tamyia kits, are they?
Excellent idea and built !
Thanks mates! Hapy you like it!
@Bruce: the cobbled base is home made using a rolling pin from greenstuffworld
@Neuling: the jeep is a pleasure to build and the motor is much more detailed than the Tamiya one, but otherwise I think the Tamiya still stands its rank; on the contrary, the old Tamiya half-track is no match any more against the new AFV Club which is better detailed in every aspect (motor, turret and running gear...) butalso much harder to build too (which of course wouldn't be a problem for you!) I would recommend both without hesitation.
Many thanks, Jean-Michel. It's a busy scene with lots of detail and interest wherever I look 🙂

Great work! So much more here than meets the eye.
Great piece, it's inspired an idea of my own. How was the crane to build? I'm trying to decide between this one and the Takom.
I don't know about the Takom one, but I found the quality of this one really worth the price. No building issues actually, I can recommend it.
Outstandig work! 👍

Very interesting Sherman variants in this dynamic diorama. I like the careful and moderate weathering on the tanks and the painting and arrangement of the figures. 👍
Thanks Neuling. As you are are a reference for me (and a lot of mates too), I greatly appreciate your compliments! Keep on modellin'!
Another great work and dio. Very Well done, alround 👍
Thanks Rui! Much appreciated!

M3 Light Tank in Tunisia 1943, with improvised mud camo...
Beautiful litle tank. Great weathering 👍
I agree with Rui. And I also like the paint work on the tanker.
Thanks mates! A recent model from Tamiya, so a real pleasure to build!

Surprise, surprise! A Russian tank without rust and dust and mud and damage and scratching and and and ......... Well done! Mint fresh model of beautiful vehicle. Thomas Kirschbaum will like it ......
Well, it's an older build of mine, 3 years ago. I must confess I would probably be less kind with it today... But yes, even Russian tanks have their clean days I guess. Thanks!
Nice looking T-55👍
Very nice total my taste 😉

Another beauty. Well done 👍
Hopefully the British don´t drink too much cidre .... the farmer might be a German agent trying to slow down the Alied advance with biological warfare .... Anyway: very nice scene, top paint work on tank and figures. Question: what are the markings on the turret for?
Beautiful work! 👍
They were used by the Royal Marines Armored Support Group on D-Day.
The numbers on the turret were to provide a bearing for infantry outside the tank to be able to direct its main gun fire, as there is a telephone at the back for communication with the crew inside.
James put it perfectly. And you really have a lot of imagination, Neuling. Would you ever accept a drink from a stranger?
Thanks James, very interesting information! - Jean-Michel: it depends ........

Absolute gorgeous! Chapeaux!

Great work! 👍
two of my favorite tanks in my favorite season - made my day!
Thanks for the tip! I've ordered a backup set from Bronco just in case I mess up to many links 😄
Good move from MENG to add the axles instead of the wire.
Awesome vignette Jean-Michel. Very inspiring as always

Très chouette !
Very dynamic and realistic scene! The soldiers really bring it to life. Top paint work, especially on the figures!
Figure painting like this is an art form all its own...
Extremely well done, the whole scene is a delight to gaze at, the figures are beautiful, I wish my figures were half as good as yours.👍👍👍
Thanks all maters for the kind words and like!
Beautifuly done alround . Very good 👍

I was considering buying this same kit.
But I cannot compete with yours so I shall pass.
Great scene you give us here !
The kit is very good indeed. And don't forget: this is not a competition, just a hobby. The only thing that counts is have fun and learn by doing. So let you get inspired by what others do, not discouraged. I often see master pieces which I would not think possible. Then I think: Maybe one day... Thanks for your comment anyway 😉
Nice dio with this diferent model 👍 the camouflage net always difficult the vision to the details under😎
Very good work! Rui is right: the camouflage net conceals the interesting interior details. Can you sneak in with your camera, Jean-Michel?
I added some more pics (from pic 16) for the more curious ones 😉 Thanks for the interest!
As expected😉 beautiful hidden work 👍
Amazing job Jean-Michel! Hört did you paint the leather of the gunners? Great Color!
@Rui: true beauty is often hidden 😉
@Acki: For figure painting, I mostly use acrylics from the Vallejo Model Color series. In this case, I based the leather color on their 70.982 Cavalry Brown.
