Meet me at the station

Hi all,
some pics of a recently finished project. This little diorama shows a "statio", one of the Roman guard posts that were located in cities and along roads. They fulfilled police, border patrol and customs duties. All figures are by Hecker & Goros, the beautiful fountain is from Fredericus Rex.

And you did a wonderful job!!! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
