  1. A true masterpiece Jonas, RESPECT!

  2. Jonas, this is VERY well done ... a great representation of similar sights I saw over there. I was in Desert Storm, not Enduring Freedom, but there were similar sights then, too. Your scratchbuilt tank interior is outstanding but your burned areas are the BEST. You nailed it, my friend! BEAUTIFULLY done and very imaginative! Even an IED in the car's trunk. Outstanding!


  3. Really nice work Jonas. This is just Outstanding!

  4. πŸ™‚ … Greetings … πŸ™‚ :
    Impressive diorama Jonas. It brings back memories ( NEVER FOGOTTEN ) of my various tours in that region. Your inclusion of an IED in the trunk of the Mercedes, is a good detail but is a somewhat chilling thing for me as a EOD tech and officer. Well done.

  5. An excellent job, Jonas!
    Details and weathering are just perfect. A pleasure to view!

  6. Great imagination and execution, Jonas.


  7. Not sure what I like better, the half burned T-55; the Mercedes bomb car or the destroyed environment that stages the whole diorama... fantastic is an understatement.
    Another thing that surprised me is the sense of size of the tank...I imagined it a lot bigger given the soldiers proportions.

  8. Incredible work. True craftsmanship

  9. fabulous, I really like the paint-job on the tank

  10. Another eye-catching diorama! Very nice.

  11. Hi,

    thanks for your kind comments. This one was a challenge based on the fact that I wanted to include a tank, a car and 3 figures on a reasonably small base. A bridge became the obvious answer. The insurgent and IED came as natural additions along the way to emphasize the story being told.
