"The first part of 240x120 cm is finished..." Are you are building this thing in an aircraft hangar or something :lol:

It looks good already, I'm sure it will be an impressive sight once it is all finished.

I like this project of yours Martin but let me ask is that grass/crops looks a bit on the white color is it that way or how the pics turned out?

@Chris + Maurice: the dio is divided in pieces of 60x60cm and will be stored in boxes.
@Musketier: The "White"parts suppose to be a wheatfield. It is not finished yet.
The browner parts are the areas where the infantry crossed to make their vast attack on the allied lines.
