This diorama has gone through many changes. I have now scaled it down to a small diorama which I think will be the final look, I have been working on, changing and adding figures as well as re-working, and detailing them.

The diorama is based during the Libyan conflict. The opposition is holding ground in a nearby compound where they are at a stand-off with government troops, loyal to Khadaffi. I hope you all like this build as well as my figure painting. I think I have improved since my last figure painting job.

Nice! This diorama shows what a well-balanced threat team this is: PKM machine gun, AKS carbine, RPG rocket launcher with reload, SVD sniper rifle, and guy with a radio. Just four men can carry a lot of firepower and you showed this extremely well.

I like it.

Only criticism is that you have the ammo box for the PKM mounted imcorrectly. It should be under the gun, not on the side. Should be able to fix that easily enough.

hi Robert. Thank you for that. I did not know. I just did what the instructions told me to do.
