This being the 11th day of the 11th month, a time when in many parts of the world we turn our thoughts to remembering the sacrifices made by too many young men and women so that we may remain free of the horrors of war, it is entirely appropriate to post this little Great War vignette.

Hi Larry

That's amazing! I'm with Edoardo in finding the stripdown kits ultra-daunting. Your work on the whole scene is inspirational.

All the best

Excellent model and diorama. Unique and intriguing. So many elements to this diorama that, even without the DH2, make it "pop".

Thanks! Eduard kits are really good, but they aren't for the weak of heart...
