    Very nice dio!

    At this scale, this is a lot of work! How long did it take for you to finish the whole thing?

    Cheers!

    Thanks Hans and Dolf...

    From start (on the kubel) to finish (complete), around 3.5 months......

    My best guess in hours would be around 140 - 160.

    Thanks! (y)

    Given the number of pieces, the amount of detail, the groundwork... and the time for researching (if that's included), you did a great work at a relatively fast pace! :eek:


    Cheers!

    Thanks again everyone. These figures were wonderful to create. Jeff shiu's really did a great job with them and they elevated the diorama to a whole other level for me.
