I uploaded a few WIP pics of this little diorama a few months ago and after languishing on the shelf for a few months, I decided to finish the build. I don't normally build anything smaller than 1/72, but these two at 1/144 were the perfect size[...]
This diorama is Iwo jima landing operation.
Actually, the actual landing was carried out with LVT and Sherman Tank, but the LVT and sherman tank's details were very low. So I exclude them.
