Stellar work! Very inspiring as it makes me want to build something heavy and paint a few figures right away... and I usually don't do either.

Your diorama is an absolute treat Gary, one of the best I think I've seen. Can't wait to see what's next.
Cheers,
Dave.

Lovely work all round - I love the subdued tones you achieve - your work has a very distinctive style. Can’t wait to see what’s next… the type B? Cheers Matt

That is not my subject, but I must admit you are a great modeler and artist Gary!
I like the lifelike painting of figures.

Cheers,

Thanks Fredrik, I always hope to inspire a bit of creativity and adventure in others, so it would be nice if you went out and did just that  ;)

I'm glad you find it pleasing Dave. I tried to lay it out so that the components added a bit of interest ...instead of having just a Tractor towing the gun & limber in a straight line. My next project will be the MiniArt Military Type B Omnibus (already in the works!).

It will be a pleasure to get together and show you this one, Lance. Marianne and I would look forward to that  :) It's nice to know that the time I spent trying to compose the scene is appreciated by modellers as discerning as yourself.
Cheers,
Gary

That's very kind of you to say, Matt. I sometimes try to break out of my "norms" to create something that looks different...but can't shake the overall appearance of each of my projects. Next time, I'm going for more extreme weathering  8)

Thanks Frank - I especially like painting figures! I believe they add so much to a model display, whether it's an aircraft or vehicle.
Cheers,
Gary
