    They are really wel cast and painted. I even guess their waryness , it makes me want to read Sven Hassel again.

    Hi Ray, sorry I had not seen this before but, you did one hell of a fantastic job on your diorama. I was never in this kind of league. I wasn't bad but I wasn't great at them. The best I ever did was when I used to custom build for Museums and such-small 1/72nd scale dioramas-usually dealing with the Zulu Wars. The best one I did in that area was a simple one showing a total of 15 figures. Four were British Soldiers-one having been badly wounded, another using his bayonet to keep three attacking Zulus off him, the other two firing their rifles. There were a couple of dead Zulus, another in the act of dying, and the rest charging their position. Their position was located at the Corral at Roarkes Drift. I've always wanted to do an Islandulwana scene.

    All the detailed pieces I used in this diorama were hand made and painted from bits of cardboard and melted plastic from the spree of another kit i was working on.

    Anyway, a magnificant work of art on your part ;-))
