First of all, congrats Maurice with a fine victory. :thumbup:

When we started up this duel, and Maurice showed what he was planning to paint, I knew I should come with something special to beat him. I tried but couldn't succeed. He did a hell of a job on them. They are so goooood painted, and the little scene he made is just perfect. :thumbup:

Now about mine. Figures and house are Italeri. The ammo boxes are made of resin, wich I bought at the meeting at Mol. And I still have to do a lot of work on this dio, because it's ugly. :(

Thanks for the votes :thumbup:

Appearance may be deceitful :) They are not that well painted. Especially the spring type oakleaf pattern gave me head ages, first to find the right color, then to get it right on the color. They also lack shading, as these were painted with Humbrol enamels (for the very last time, for nostalgia :-D ) but some of the paint dried up somewhat glossy which shows on the pictures.

I liked your work Peter, nice to see those Italeri walls in action for once. They look nice, but do try to fix that gap between the wall and the sandbags. Thanks for doing this duel with me :)
