An Old Theme Revisited

Here is my interpretation of a meeting between the SAS and the LRDG! It uses the Tamiya 1/35 scale kits and was really a vehicle for me to try my hand at modeling desert terrain. Comments welcome as always!

4 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  10. ‘Try your hand?’ – looks like you’ve been perfecting that desert landscape for years. Hugely impressive, Derek.

  11. That’s an impressive diorama! It looks like it could come to life at any moment.

  12. Like the real thing. Very nice.

  13. Very impressive!

  14. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I seem to recall that the LRDG *became* the SAS.

    Really nice diorama – all elements of equal quality and a good story is evident. One can almost write the dialogue (not that it could be said here! 🙂 )

  15. According to Wiki the LRDG remained independent from the SAS until it was disbanded in ’45.

  16. Beautiful work – I think you’ve got “desert” down pat! Everything else looks awesome also…

  18. Love the colors and how well everything coalesced into a very cohesive vignette.
