Currently doing a 'What If' diorama for operation Sea Lion, here's what I have so far. Now I'm trying to determine the best way to place everything.

These are the two best ways to display the tank that's been knocked out. Now it's just I'm trying to figure out what the most realistic way to display the gun crew. Thanks in advance

I'd use a "garden" style design, so biggest items in the back, and lowest in the front. I'd also make a bigger base, so everything is inside the frame.

Maybey with a wall, separating land from road, as seen here:

That wouldnít be a bad idea to add the wall. I think the way Iím going to display this itíll come out looking like a garden technique

Enjoy,

I'd make the wall chest high.
Google fe "sussex stone wall countryside".

You could also add a cow to fill in space.

Most important rule is to not have anything parallel/ perpendicular to the frame.
