Darren, is there a better/ closer shot of that diorama with the soldiers crossing a bridge surrounded by trees? Would love to see that.

Looks like there was a pretty good mix of displays at the show.

I assume you mean this one? Here are a couple that Camogirl took at the show.






Unfortunately the camera flash doesn't help with the mood of the diorama

That's an awesome diorama. I had just seen the documentary series 'Apocalypse WWI and this captures the feel of that series perfectly.

Thanks Allen.

A couple hours after my post I actually found some photos of it on Facebook.
