Below please find photos of my first work that I felt comfortable sharing here. It depicts a image of a meeting of the minds on a field in Poland in 1939. It consists of DML PzKpfw I, ausf a. and Italeri R75 with sidecar. Figures are from kits and DML. Painting is a mix of historical reference and artistic license.

Would love to hear any suggestions or comments.

I like the stage that you’ve set here. Very nicely done! My only critique, is regarding the rather basic title compared to what could have been pulled directly from your body text: “A Meeting of the Minds”
IMHO

Cheers!🍺

Nice job Glenn - particularly the groundwork & weathering on both vehicles, just right. And great figure painting too, you’ve done the very best with not-the-best examples – I’d like to see you tackle some of the better ones on the market. Hard to fault anything – OK quibble the hatches maybe over-weathered. Show us more!

echo the comments above, really good diorama, vehicles are in the groundwork and not on it, good weathering.

my only comment would have been to offset the bike from the tank slightly rather than have them lined up, it would give the indication that it has met up with the tank and they are discussing what the bike crew has seen, rather than travelling with it
