Well, here she is at last! Considering this was started as a short term D-Day competition build it's taken a little longer than planned but in the end that was all to the good as I've included far more than I ever intended from the initial concept!Blink
With all the little rubber moulds I've built up for resin casts on this one, I may well try some other builds in this scale in the future, and with the PE railings and figures I can see some of my decades old collection of Matchbox and Tamiya ship models finally getting out of the old garage workroom and seeing the light of day!BigGrin
Many thanks indeed to all those who have visited the build over the months and for their greatly encouraging comments throughout. I hope you will enjoy the pics below as much as the process of 'putting them together'!
Best wishes and stay safe to you all!

Robin.

Its been a treat to watch this one coming together and seeing the thought processes that have gone into getting some awkward build stages come to a great conclusion.

A truly amazing diorama Robin, fantastically detailed in such a small scale and wherever you look there is something happening.This is just begging to be put in a D-Day museum somewhere eventually. I think it deserves a 'double thumbsup'!

Very well done indeed sir!! Drool ThumpUp ThumpUp

It's a really fantastic build. I am really impressed. I would have gone blind trying to work on such tiny parts. The detail you were able to achieve at such a small scale is impressive.
Best Regards,
Ron

Totally agree Phil, I think the Imperial War Museum would be interested in this. You might get asked to do a commission piece Robin. Superb work. Cool

Many grateful thanks to all for the above congratulations! I don't know what to say - I really thought the one I voted for would have got it instead but thank you all for the vote of confidence!Blushing Blushing Blushing
(I would have posted this in the winners thread but for some reason I'm not getting a 'reply' box coming up to click on!)
The prize will be a big (pun intended) challenge for me, in all my modelling years I've only built about half a dozen cars, mostly the old Airfix vintage car series and that was about 50 years ago? The last one I ever did (40 years?) was I think a Monogram 1/35 scale something or other which I painted up with the Yellow, Red and Blue scheme of a Main Force Patrol police car from the first Mad Max movie (with a sawn off shotgun in the rear window!) This will be er, different!
Many thanks again, and I'd better get on and PM 'the boss'!BigGrin

Keep safe All.

Hi Robin,

All created out!

Shoot me a PM. It didn’t come through.

Best,

Mark



The world turns softly
Not to spill its lakes and rivers.

The water is held in its arms
And the sky is held in the water.

What is water, That pours silver,
And can hold the sky?
