Exceptional Jean-Louis! Detail, detail and yet more detail & I love the concept too, it looks like it’ll be very atmospheric. Given your advanced skills straps shouldn’t a stretch – and you are Master of Snow, your observation and execution of the way it does – and doesn’t – accumulate is fantastic...I guess you’ve had plenty of material readily to hand recently




Thank you Tim.

I was born in the Alps, and now living in Montreal so yes, I have had plenty of time to study everything about snow !!!

Really enjoying this. The only thing missing is straps on the weapons. I hope you forgive me for pointing that out. You have a nice touch on all of the details.



That's OK; if I put this online, I am ready to read other modelers comments and accept them. That is what I like about posting my work : learn from my mistakes and improve.

You are right, straps are missing. I didn't feel confident enough... I will add one on the last figure's weapon. I am not sure I will succeed but at least, I will try !

Really nice work.

The crow is an exquisite touch.



The crow is here to give more strength to the scene below him with the dead german soldier under the rubble, the casket and the soldier holding the Adolf Hitler portrait.

fantastic work. I love the painting and weathering on the vehicle. The figures are top notch. I am looking forward to the finished diorama. I too have decided to build more this year. I am getting older and the stash isn't going to finish it's self.



Thank you Jeff.

Loads to look at here. I've got a stalled M20 duo that's been on the bench for ages. This might just be the inspiration I need to get it finished.



Hi Paul,
I decided to finish all my started models and dioramas. It was too frustrating to see all those kits.

I had a lot of fun doing this one, which is not completely finished. One figure is missins, as well as a dog and wine and milk crates.
