Very nicely done. I, too, would like to see more photos of the structures. Also a full overhead shot would be great. Where did you source your foliage and trees from?

Fantastic camo work! Can you please share the colors/paints you used? I've been trying to nail down that style for some time, and yours is the best I've seen.

Nice work! ... Iím guessing that the guy leaning on the 251 is scraping poop off of his boot sole, only to be served-up another round by the American ambush!

Cheers!🍺

That's a great diorama, everything very well painted and configured, and with lots going on. My only gripe is that some of the vegetation is a tad too brightly coloured for my taste, I find my eyes drawn to the orange and yellow first. I'd have toned that down a bit so that they don't dominate as much, but that's just my personal preference.

Thank you all for the compliments, I do have some other pictures posted in an album on here..not sure how to send or set up the link?? The paints used were the AK interactive AK 3050 paint set for the camo. The building is completely scratch built utilizing 1/2 inch drywall, real stones from gravel roads, coffee stirrers and a series of washes and acrylic paints to get the old weathered lock. I searched the Internet and used multiple pictures for the basis of the camouflage paining on the uniforms. Camouflage painting on uniforms at 1/35 th scale certainly tests ones patience 👍 The foliage and ground material is a combination of Woodland scenics products and Joe fix studio products.

WOW, this is fine work! That barn is real looking and the quality and quantity of the foliage as well air the complexity is superb! The slant of the ground is most interesting and you have proved that the quality of the old Tamiya stuff is still excellent in your hands!
