Hi

This is my work during hollydays.
Thanks to Ilian Filipov and Philippe Edern for help.

Writing more on the story when the diorma will start.

Chevrolet LRDG Dragon with tires and photoetched parts from Hauler.
Black Dog set for equipements.
Scratch for the engine.

Now, working on the Breda Gun

Small advance of the weekend, assembly of the Vikers and setting in position of one of the figures.
The wire is used to tighten it so that it fits perfectly on the camouflage net.

I still have work on the engraving of the arms and I would like this figurine to be in a sweater, it will also have to shape it.

Full of details as always. I like the open (still white) boxes on the vehicle.
Superb.

Nice good figures from Cäsar and D-Day figures capture the vehicle at the special dessert "bus stop".
:-D

The stone fit size wise very well. And is a needed wight during the transport to the hobby shows.

Very nice indeed with a slightly different subject matter.

I am looking forward to see the finished, no doubt superb, finale.

Best wishes,

Chris

i Love this topic! There`s plenty of creativity and flare coupled with first class photographs too.
i actually knew two of the old boys who served in that unit. One was my Brother in Law, and the other my oldest Brother. Both long gone now but kindly remembered. BB

Thank you, it touches me a lot.
By our models, it's also a way to keep memories of so many extraordinary men

The seat are drilled, the gun is drilled, the several materials in bows and turns, the white plastic sheets in angels, the etched hand wheels, this that and there, etc ...
All for such a small thing.

Agreed. Looks so good at this stage. That figure with the warm clothes is wonderful. I don't see that often.
