Im lovong your work.

What's the idea behind the diaroma.

Did it slide into the dirt bank or is it in a protected fighting position?

Do you want to share it?  Researchers including myself have studied these Tunisian Tigers in great detail. I may be able to tell you where the photo was taken, or tell you something about the tank, etc.

hello to all fans, we have come to the end of my umpteenth effort, the figure, a desert rat 8Th armed and 'complete and has been placed inside the diorama with the expression of the victorious and proudly looks at the abandoned Panzer III ... defeated ..... the model was brought to the International Model Show of Savona in Italy and to my surprise it was rewarded with an GOLD reward and a Best of the Africa campaign, which add more. ... I am very happy that I liked it and the prize believe me was really unexpected. a warm greeting to all and good modeling ciao il Pinna
