Great diorama! Great figures (man do they show off how big those B+V machines would have been!) I really like the paint job. Did you do it freehand?

Nice job all round! :thumbsup:

Camo scheme is great as well. Think it could also be pretty effective at high alitudes.
Cheers,

I admit I did reach for the knitting needles to pursue a less challenging hobby after seeing the first few pics, Matt.  But then I reconsidered and will take your superb craftsmanship as something to strive for.

But, seriously, Matt: WOW!   :bow: :bow:
