Joaquin, your dio is getting soooo awsome. Not just the size but the execution and research made. It's gorgeous!!!

But I have bad news for you: you said in your last update that you're done with the add-ons. Sorry my friend. We're never done!! Hahahaha

Congrats for the amazing work.

OK Joaquim thank you.

You show a lot of vehicles kits; Will you use all of them for this diorama ?



Hello Alex. Yes those 6 vehicles are intended for this dio. However, I have not placed to upper shells to determine if all 6 will look too cluttered... I hope that's not the case but I'm a long ways away. First step will be to complete both sections. I'll look into placing those shells on there to get a gage on spacing. I'll post a pic once I get them on there.

Hey there Nacho, LOL bro I know I'm not done buying. Already got my eye on more stuff but I really got to build all the stuff in hand first - like Nick said, it's looking like a hobby shop in here! LOL

Happy weekend modelers!

Just wanted to stop by and share a few pictures of the final items received this week to complete this project.

But first, thanks for the continued interest, comments, and views.

Patrick,
Speaking of "size & scope"... I think it's a good time to recap my outstanding to do kits. The pictures on this update will feature The New & The pending kits to build.

Cheyenne,
Appreciate the kind words my friend and yes, it's getting bigger! LOL

I want to give a special thanks to one of our fellow members; John Wypyszinski (white4doc) for his generous donation of the beautiful MIG Burnt Out Car kit.

In total, I received 6 new kits this week, as follows:



Possible burnt car location - she fits like a glove.



(4x) New Plus Model kits;
,,,,


The pending:

(6x) US ARMY vehicles:


Figures (over 35):
,

Kits (Block 2):


Lots on the to do list! Good thing about building huge dioramas I learned quickly is that there's always a new task at hand... New kit, planning, detailing, weathering... Repeat! Love this hobby!!!

Paul, ebay is where I found the kits as Marcos indicated.

However, I purchased straight from verlinden the manufacture. I found "Dragon-Hobby" to be a bit more expensive. I received a discounted 20% rate for multi-items purchased. Ask before you buy and you might get lucky.

That was a stroke of luck now that Verlinden has shut down...
