    It has been a long time since my last post .
    2 years in the making this diorama is finished .I know this is usually not the place to post projects more related to modeling , but there are 21 figures in this diorama .
    The jeep and the truck are from Tamiya .
    Most of the figures are from Alpine miniatures .
    The jeep crew is from Bronco models .
    Some additional figures are from miniart , MK35 and the camearaman is scratchbuild .
    There are a lot of accessoires from different manufacturers : Verlinden , Unicorn models , Miniart, etc MK 35, Plus models , ....
    All figures have been finished with oils .
    The snow is from Krycell .
    The next project(s) are strictly figure based . 2 years is a long time to keep focused .

    The story behind the diorama is one of R and R during the battle in the Ardennes in Belgium .
    Wounded soldiers can rest in a local farm but one is missing , Joe .
    Joe is visiting the smalest room the house were he is found by another slodier .

    Great diorama! So much detail and action. In fact, it is several mini-dioramas in one!

    Absolute amazing amount of detail in your diorama. Reminds me of the good old Verlinden and Bob Letterman Dioramas. Truly inspiring :) (y)
