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?

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 🙂
