Amazing work. If I had to pick a favorite.....I couldn't.
Don's snow treatment on the Hetzer is masterful. His story telling in the Poker Party is amazing. I found something outstanding in every diorama. Waterboy must have a shelf full of trophies, and if he doesn't , he should!
Great feature.

Very beautiful dios. Each one is simple but actually tells a story. The details are all good and the composition is excellent.

In what museum can I view the real thing, sir? Will there be a fee to enter your museum?
