    Final version for your consideration - what do you think?
    As always value your feedback to help me improve on next projects.

    Groundwork sand, small rocks etc. are actual soil from Chunuk Bair,
    collected when I attended Centennial Commeration in April 2015.

    Note: Still need to complete display base & will share overall presentation when this is competed towards end of this month. A US modelling friend has offered to help with a special design feature

    Further Step by Step images from over the year I worked on this project available here:

    Excellent.
    However, I have one criticism, where are the flies?;)
    That is one of the most emotive piece I've seen Mike.

    Thank you Paul, took a while but finally got there mate :)

    Carl they were frightened by camera & so too busy buzzing around for me to capture in photo
    I did add these on back of earlier NZMR figure though
    Thanks for comment, Steve Warrilow has honoured our forefathers with his artistic interpretation here.

    What can I say Mike but excellent, superb, words are not enough to describe what you've done.
    I have nothing but admiration for this little diorama. This is now a must have for me. Thank you for sharing this one Mike. (y)(y):happy:

    I can't really add much to what others have already said. This is just a superb diorama; the modelling, painting, composition, just excellent stuff. You've really captured this moment in time (y)
