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 ;-))
thanks carl,cant take all the credit though,the tank was down to me,and the figures were sent to a guy in malaysia who did the assembly and artwork on the figures,and some stowage,ray..
That is wonderful!! I don't have the patience for things this intricate. Great job!
