Gorgeous! I could spend a day just taking in all of the details. The diorama lends dimension to what I have only scene in photos.

I thank you all for your nice comments,much appreciated!Tony,I have pics of the speyer truck,but it's an earlier type than that in LeBourget. I estimated all the dimensions according to different fotos I found on the web and those I took in LeBourget.hence the scale might differ between about 1:70 and 1:80.

No I know why I joined these forums!

Everything about this is incredible and looks like a museum piece - you really have captured a story here and the depth to the diorama just sucks you in deeper every time you look at it.
