Absolutely incredible work, the detail is amazing even down to the dead rat, you have done a superb job with the figures and the gun is simply brilliant.

Borsos

I can offer you no higher personal compliment than to tell you that when viewing your scene I 'feel' the emotions of the horror of war and sadness that any humans had to go through what these soldiers had to....for any model to bring out such emotion is to me quite simply.....amazing.

I could not have a piece such as this in my room, it would make me feel too sad ... too often......please take that as a compliment.

I wholly agree with Dino - but I could also not have made this model because I do not have the incredible skill that you have demonstrated in building and constructing this. Very many congratulations on an excellent diorama.

Stephen.

Borsos, this is one of the most action packed and beautifully executed dioramas I've ever seen!  Everything from the gun to the base to the modified figures is truly superb!
Cheers,

I can't believe I haven't commented on this Spectacular Diorama! The Morser is Outstanding and the figures as always are superb! The ground work and arrangement of the pieces are first class!

This topic is quite old but I didn't saw it ended. Congratulation it's very relistic, and very well done.

about your observation concerning your motivations, reading the two remarque and Barbusse sentences, their are obvious (with your permision I do them mine, changing the languages, like the ying and the yang).
My grand father hated germans and yours surely had the same sentiments for the french. but we learned to know and apreciated each other: what we did is important.
dark times are coming, so keep those positive acts in our mind is important, I think.

Thank you very much for your kind comments!

Thank you in particular, Xan, I couldn't agree more with what you said. That you adopt the quotations of Remarque and Barbusse in changed languages, that is really really great.
Merci pour ça et un salut cordial
