Stunning bit of work. Manages to capture the emotion of the scene in a rare example of true modelling art. Sir, I dip my hat too you

The sad reality of war.

That being said, this is one of the best diorama that I have seen in a long time!

Exceptional painting and weathering and story telling, all in
a small space.

Cheers,
Joe

This is one of the best dioramas I have ever seen. I'm sure they'd want to display this in a place of honor at Fort Campbell.

Superb concept & realization!! One thing that struck me was the stoic looks of anger & confusion on the faces of the other troopers like you'd see in countless war movies."What for?",, "Why him?",, "Why not me?" Stunning scene!!

This is a work of art that should, at least, get 55.000+ views and 256+ positive comments.....

That is some truly amazing work. So often we see great works here that show amazing scenes and technical prowess. However, it is rare to see a diorama that genuinely invokes emotion the way this one does. It is easy to feel the gravity of the scene in this work. Excellent work. Truly amazing.

Excellent color modulation in the uniforms, and truly original poses.

Wonderfull work. One of the best dios I have seen recently. If I may give a word of advise thou I would not use green colour for US webbing, green webbing didnt occure untill after the war.
