Great dio of a great scene...really like all the detail and the "scree" was great (I used that word recently to describe a parking lot with loose gravel and no one knew what it was...).

Thanks for sharing with me!

Jerry- Thanks for being along for this one bud, I'm glad you like the final piece. I can say for sure that your figure work and the way you tell a story through your work has really inspired me and I kept thinking throughout this build about how best to set it up that it would make sense and tell a kind of story or at least make the viewer aware of the context.

Hyder- Thanks for stopping by- I'm so glad you enjoyed seeing the build coming together.

Alex- Thanks for taking the time to check out the thread. I remember early on in the build I wanted to take a look at the door handles because, as you pointed out, they are in different positions to that on the kit when they are open. It was the handle on the outer side of the door that was the reason I didn't try to modify it- its moulded solid and I didn't think I could accurately get it cut off and repositioned so I left it as is.

Marcos- Thank you for your kind words my friend.

Hans-Hermann- I'm glad you like the way it turned out!

Patrick- Thanks for checking out the build- I'm happy you like it.

Maybe a little late, but this 2012 Bundeswehr video shows Fennek and Aladin in action an Afghanistan.

Note the transport box for the Aladin.
