I enjoyed every minute of this build..... even the figures. They are far from perfect but I'm happy enough with them for my first serious attempt.

I dedicate this diorama to our Canadian brothers, 45,400 of whom were killed in action fighting the Nazis. We owe them a debt that can never be paid.

That really turned out great Al. The weathering really makes it pop, well done.

That looks absolutely brilliant Al, a complete triumph. 
The figures look great and give the diorama a real boost. They bring the whole model to life in my opinion.

Thanks guys.

Due to my wife's ill health, this will be the the last from me for some time I think.

Thanks Kats. Dios can be frustrating and rewarding at one and the same time. I really enjoyed this none.
