Thanks Stephen

You won't know unless you try. Start one and keep after it until you're happy with it. :o)b

Very cool Tony, great composition and the groundwork looks very realistic, DAK subjects make for great models, have a few Afrika Korps projects myself in the pipeline, love all the deatils like the markings for Tripoli and Tobruk, class :DX

For a first dio this is pretty amazing! I'd love a result like that too if I ever attempt a dio. I think this is fantastic with some outstanding finished models on very nice ground work. The figures look excellent too. I hope this isn't your last dio Tony!

Thanks for posting this up as I'm sure it'll inspire others when they can see what can be done first time on a diorama.

I doubt if i'll ever do another guys.
The main reason being I don't have room in my wifes allotted space for my toys. :lol:

The big rock came from her garden, the smaller rocks from the drive way and the sand from my sand blaster
and Hobby Lobby store.

Thanks folks, my head just grew two hats sizes.
