    Excellent idea and very interesting - shows off the figures from Tommy's War in such a new fashion and very educational - every school should have some of these showing WW1 trenches especially when the history lessons are about that time.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence. One day I might believe in myself as much as others do? I'm pleasantly surprised to see how much interest this is producing.

    Terrific interpretation of the field engineering manuals.

    I have often thought of doing something similar and abandoned the idea. This presentation is architect quality.

    Superb

    I am now negotiating with an exhibition in South Croydon, London to exhibit these models and my 1.285 scale trench models. The exhibition is better, in my opinion, to IWM. www.remembering1916.co.uk

    I can only echo all the above praise. You successfully tackled a daunting concept concerning WW I trenches.

    The 9 sections together look superb. Are you able to post close up photos of the 6 other sections as Id love to see them in more detail? Glad you think you have found a good home for them too.
    Cheers

    Here are some more close ups. I've been blogging on the Military Modelling Forum in the Dioramas section for about 3 years. Go there for many more photos. I also have many miniature models on there in 1.285 scale or smaller. My albums on there are here http://www.militarymodelling.com/albums/member_albums.asp?c=41238
