Greg Kerry has created quite the diorama for you all to enjoy.  This is Greg's 1/72 Mars Merkava & Orion Israeli Infantry diorama and despite the fact the kit did not fit very well, Greg did get it finished to a very high standard and the inclusion of the figures does a wonderful job bringing the whole scene to life.

Angelo M Picardo is here with his BIG 1/16th Tiger 1.   This particular Tiger 1 started life as an RC toy and was redone and super detailed by Angelo using all scratchbuilt pieces to represent a Tiger 1 as it may have appeared during the battle of Kursk.  Angelo added battle damage to the armour and gave his Tiger 1 a full weathering job.  The RC parts still function much to his cats dismay and the gun even fires BB's........gotta' love that.   Thanks for sharing Angelo.....your Tiger 1  started my day with a big grin.

Greg Kerry has done an exceptionally fine job on his 1/35 Trumpeter LAV 25.  Greg built it out of the box and then completed the scene with figures and a diorama base.  He explains the whole process in his article and when you check out his photos you will see that Greg really knows his stuff and has some very effective techniques.  Beautifully done Greg.
