  1. I'm glad you like it Mark, but I think the one George Seletas did as a NASA vehicle at the 2015 national was much better. That is the one which got me to buy one of the kits. Dak
  2. For those interested, the vignette is done. Looks like a T-Rex dismembering a carcass. Dak
  3. Decals have been added. Both from the kit and other sources. Dak
  4. The 1/20th Hasegawa Maschinen Krieger Camel converted to a towing and salvage vehicle. The sphere is Alclad clear blue over gold and the body is clear green over stainless steel. The waldo is scratchbuilt. Way more work to do. Dak
  5. Here is the follow up. The figures in place and the water surface textured with acrylic gel. Dak
  6. Finishing up the WNW H-B W.12. Using resin for the water. The top layer will be artist gel to crate some wave action, Figures are from Wings Cockpits. As you can see in the photo, there is a crewman standing on the float pretty much how these will be posed. Dak
  7. Keep in mind, I have always said a landing craft on a tank transporter is a ship diorama. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Dak
  8. That is not what the rules say. Two or more vehicles is a large comp diorama. But there is nothing that says you canโ€™t have ten vehicles and one figure in figure diorama. The ten vehicles would just make it large comp. I.E. Tank Man and ten T-59s. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Dak
  9. I disagree, Ed. The whole scene was inspired by the captured half-tracks in the picture and the desire to show the Germans surrendering. Without the figures, some people would not get the significance of the stars on the vehicle. In my opinion, the 25 figures dominate the scene and tell the story. If the 251 was removed, it would not change the story. The halftrack is merely background, like the wall. And they won't be judging the plaque. Noting that it is captured is an effort to inform those that are confused by a Nazi vehicle with American markings. I didn't want someone thinking it is
  10. Rusty, that is my take, also, but I have others feel my opinion is grossly wrong. In 2011, I had one with a vehicle which I enter in figure diorama and it got moved removed from where it had a good chance at a win (IMO) to the vehicle category where it got lost in the crowd. The contest rules have vague points in them and people seem to have a fit when there is a challenge. I just don't want a big argument at the show because this surprises someone. Nothing actually states what is the clear defining line between diorama categories. Viva Las Vegas! Dak
  11. This diorama has a total of 25 figures and it is my intention to enter it as a figure dioramas, large composition. Does anyone see a problem with that? Dak
  12. Remember, the one who dies with the most toys wins. Dak๐Ÿ˜‰
