That's really nice, the light looks great in a darkened room.

Blinding work Keef, the Verlinden figs. look a treat altogether like that. I like the paint-work on the tank probably because Iīm not a great fan of overdoing the weathering either. I think I may just have to try taking some photos outside too because thatīs a nice result there Keef.

Outstanding and very clever with the light. Terrific painting and weathering and the street looks great also. One of the best I have seen in a long time.

Excellent work. Great painting and layout of the diorama.

The only small issue is that I assume all street lights would have been turned of or blackended out in France in 1944. But great job none the less.

Thanks for sharing

Nice one Keith. Everything looks great. Its a pity that the full effect wonīt be seen unless its dark. Would have been a perfect shadowbox subject!

Yeah, my mistake. I guess it is Belgium since the road sign says 40 km to Bastogne
