  6. Yep...I like it, too. Good nailed the environment.

  7. Just fabulous fantastic dio and models. WOW!

  8. Very nice, Derek, and good attention to the scale of the sand/stones.

  9. Cheers George!

  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...

  17. Great desert diorama!

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

  19. Impressive. Lot of skills used. How much modding on the figures was necessary, are they market sold? I love that guy shoveling.
