You've done it again!

But, tell me, why no figures from Airfix, ESCI, Italeri, Matchbox, Pegasus, Strelets-R, Linear-B, First to Fight, and Lucky Toys? :D

I agree with that. :-D
I'm not sure what's most impressive: your composite humor, modeling techniques, or the knowledge of existing figures & materials. :notworthy: :notworthy:

Another masterpiece, like all yours, Wiking. :drool:

I don't have enough eyes to cover the great amount of details distributed here and there throughout the diorama. :love:

My very best congratulations. :yeah:

Is that an American gallon or an Imperial gallon?

I noticed that your liter is an American , not an English litre.

A Great diorama with lot’s of lovely details and Jokes! Only I do nut fully understand the story. It’s A p40 captured by the Japanse, and these Japs did not understand the content of the fuel tank was measured in gallons instead of liters? And that is why it made an emergency landing on a bridge in (South-East) Asia, that is coincidentally attacked by some Commonwealth infiltrants at the same time? (Coincidences always play an important role in your work!) :yeah: :-D

And how it is possible to send a duck from Italy occupied Albania to asia during wartime alive remains the biggest unsolved mysterie of this diorama.

Sorry, can`t find the b/w pic of this orange Japanese P40 again.

So you are right.

Correct.
A bit unlikely but possible example by using captured material starting by the different measurements.
Off topic: Several time a satellite crashed, miss landed (ESA) in the news you get told that there was a problem by miss calculation of the imperial to the metric system !

You hit the nail again,
in Burma today Myanmar that I learned by making this Dio.
A bit off topic for change the name: Sound that I am a bit uninformed. But in Europe it was Sankt Petersburg then Leningrad, when I was there it was called Sankt Pertersburg again ...

Yes !
That Commonwealth infiltrate in the swamp area is my tribute to my- small ally- plan this year.
He is a Nigerian Chindit.

All plans are so good till they hit the reality.

I feel like you that this would be impossible.

Look in 1/72 like the Albanian double eagle but it is a US red cross car board box.
Thrown away by the flying tigers ground crew, find there second live on a vehicle at a Burma road.

Let me see. All questions are answered correct. The last one was hard to see.

To stop the Allies from bombing the bridge i think the Nips pinched the other end sections of it.
Or AIRFIX forgot to put e`m in the box? :mad: drat and double drat!
The rowing boat is an ace cool object to include. However It appears that, that Nip along Yankee plane is rather a very hot one._________ Great jam packed fun! :thumbup: Well done. :coffee: BB
