Nice work. I really like the water and how it was used to show motion in the scene. How did you make the background, did you scale down a picture or use a photo that was already available?

I created the background using a photo that I resized, retouched and printed to set the work. In practice I approached the diorama to the printed sheet on photographic paper and then I made several shots.

Great job Giuseppe. Great seeing one of these venerable small scale kits made so well. Nice scratch built detail on the interior. Figures are painted nicely. Wonderful thing about these old ESCI kits is they gave you extrad....figures and stowage. Top marks. Bill

Well done. Nice balance of vehicle, water and land. Got to really appreciate the nice camo scheme on a smaller scale vehicle. Thanks for posting.

Giuseppe, your little scene has a great sense of movement, and the water effects nicely camouflage those less-than-perfect ESCI tracks too! Well done.
