Wow, Egbert, the more the diorama advances the more my admiration and expectation grow and grow. :notworthy:

If it's now a masterpiece, what will it be when you finish? I can't imagine it. :drool:

Great progress. :yeah:

Now it will take some time until the next report comes,
because the figures have to be built/rebuilt and painted.

I actually like the pictures with the black backround best. Your dio is simply incredible. I hope you have a plan to display this to the public in some way, because many people should be able to see it. Maybe a donation to the John Wayne museum?

Wonderfull work! It can be used for the next episode of this movie series (with Fort Apache (1948) and Rio Grande (1950), She wore a yellow ribbon was from 1949). Hopefully you make a whip of the figure conversions. Go on Egbert, can't wait to see the next episode.

PS: please don't let them speak German! When I served in Germany I hated to see all those good English movies with German voices. All was dubbed in German. And it didn't sound good. :(

When I see something like this I realize that life is very simple! Some people have it all! Great landscaper, great painter, great converter! The movie is great, but I think your dio will be better!

I completely agree with Susofrick. Simply you are a master, Egbert. I'm also sure that this great movie will be reinforced by the high quality of your diorama. ;-)

Congratulations and go on with it! :thumbup:

Excellent.
