    Dont know enough about this situation to get involved with the facts, but I do like the scene very much. Firstly the composition overall is magnificent, and down to the poses and painting of the individual figures. Very nice work david.

    Well I don't either Frank, truth be told! Ultimately my only modelling criteria ( rightly or wrongly) is 'does it look nice?'

    Its just a model- but I hope it at least captures something of the horror of war, that inspired it. Thanks for looking in friend!!!

    Thank you sir- catching your eye out of the general photos is compliment enough given what was on display this year. To my eye, there were many brilliant models that got nothing at all. Record entries this year apparently.
