I like a lot of things about this, Remy. The way you thinned the fuselage looks very realistic. I do like the stoniness of the ground. A couple of very small points - the gun is a 20mm Flak 38, not a 38mm or even a 37mm. :) The other point is that I don't think that a Desert Air Force Spitfire would have an aerial wire running to the rudder post. Happy to stand corrected, but it's something that I've been guilty of doing in the past, and I have never found a photo to substantiate it!

Really very good, overall.

Great dio, and I really like the 'dusty' feel, if you know what I mean.

Magnificent diorama.....I'd be inclined to call it "Trophy Hunters"! 8-)

How was the ACE Flak 38 to build? :think:
