Oops, I hit enter by accident. Thomas very nicely done, it's good to see some real drama here and I really like some of your camera angles too - particularly the final image. I know from experience how difficult grass is to represent, I would suggest maybe replacing the tufts with just churned-up earth and shattered bits of tree to echo the action. Great stuff, show us more.

Very nice, Thomas. Terrific detail, painting and the figures are very well done. The medic pulling the tanker from the turret is outstanding - great touch.

Very nice overall! I really like that you've formed the tracks over uneven terrain ... nice touch!

Very nice! The hand of the dead guy in the front looks a little unnatural as the hand naturally curves when relaxed but the rest of the scene is outstanding. I like the downhill terrain and forming the suspension and tracks to fit.

Great work!

Very nicely done, great touch w/ the trooper on top of the turret. Looks like he's really straining to pull up the tanker.

Excellent work, you captured everything that a diorama should have in it. This diorama crosses over into the work of art category. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Thank you all very much for the positive comments and constructive critics. It gives me fresh Impetus for doing more.

@ Patrick: As I look to the drivers Hand I concur with you now. It was the best looking one which I had at home when I did finished him. I will buy a more appropriate one and fix it.

@ David: As Dave guessed right: It was my idea and is indeed an allusion to the film "saving privat Ryan" the russian way.

Cheers

Thomas
