After my holidays, here are my first attempts to set up the diorama.
I did not really have an idea until I put away a little clutter, I came across an old diorama made originally to accommodate a SdKfz 232.
The idea germinated and I thought that my little Bentley would find there its place.

The figurines selected for the cast are finally a Milicast, a DDay Miniatures. The last, or rather the last ones, are from Dan Taylor Modelworks. Dan was kind enough to create especially for me a model : a small dog, a Jack Russel, faithful companion of Paddy Mayne that one sees in several of his photos.

Everything is not finished of course but it is the arrangement chosen after many tests.

Very nice done so far.
A secret refueling point in the godforsaken dessert.
"Which way is to chose to reach the meeting point with the Senussi"?

Only the light of the pic is like done just at the sun sinking in the dessert. :-D
That the unfinished driver get a cloth at his neck against the heat is a fine nice detail.
Also that the commander get goggles.

:yeah:

The car is now 100% painted. The final diorama is not finished but to present it during a model show competition, I decided to put it on a single basis. It is simply a stone found in a mountain stream this summer, so not really a diorama.
Now I have to finish all accessories and figures as well for the real diorama. It's long, long, long, ... !

Finally done !

Following the advice and opinions of friends at the Lorient model show, I left my natural stone as support. It highlights the small totomobile.
The sitting SAS figure is a Milicast. The standing one is a Dan Taylor Modelworks which I replaced the head with a Preiser, more expressive.
The dog (A Jack Russel, often in the pictures of Paddy Mayne) is a gift and a personal and unique creation of Dan Taylor, whom I thank warmly here.

David Stirling`s Blitz Buggy in 1942,just before a raid on Beghazi. It is a stolen Ford V 8 Utility Car converted to pass as a German staff car. Although it had the winged sword and who dares wins painted on the doors. To pass as German the twin and single Vickers K Machine Guns were hidden under the seats, I have written of this staff car before based upon diary`s but it is far to large a read to place here on Benno`s.

A modern day replica of the Blitz Buggy!
