Bill Cross shares a number of images of his diorama - "Who''s on top now?" the Tommies cheekily called out, along with "Behold the bloody master race."

Very atmospheric shots as well.

Outstanding diorama. I could study the pics for hours. Superb painting, weathering, background buildings, awesome vehicles. One of the very best dioramas I have seen.

I gather from the opening image that it must be tea time. Bloody brilliant work chap! ☕️

It's stuff like this that keeps me logging-in!

Bill
Once again an excellent diorama. Normally dioramas' in this size are hard to get "right", but you really nailed it. Everything looks great and the amount of details are staggering. Very well done sir.

Thank you ALL (blushing).

There's nothing, I mean NOTHING (short of things we can't discuss here in a family environment) that beats praise from one's brother and sister modelers.

I HAVE been on a bit of a tear recently, but the purchase of a light box and some photo lamps with cool bulbs allowed me to get the photos right.

Did you get an optivisor yet or are you still too young for that?

No optivisor yet, but 3.0 and 4.0 reading glasses.

Excellent build and lots of details to pore over! From the desolate and almost lonely abandoned Tiger scene, to this one with lots of activity, really shows a fine level of skill. Thanks for sharing your fine work, Bill.

Thank you so much, it was fun building it (except for the Firefly tracks).
