Very nice balanced scene. I have not seen this kit made up before.

These old Tamiya figures do scrub up well.

A brilliant little dio, Ben! :notworthy:  

I've heard a lot of criticism about the Tamiya figures and vehicles, but, not being a rivet counter myself - I have always been very impressed with them - and I love the range of figures and vehicles they do!

They're really not bad, though obviously these days you can get better. I'm trying to refine my figure painting skills on something that won't break the bank. I do wish I'd taken the time to add helmet straps and the like; next time maybe, which should be quite soon...

Thanks, Alan, I'm assuming you meant Carl when you typed Ben!  :wink:  :geek:

I have quite a number of these 1/35 kits, as I'm not a rivet counter either, and Tamiya provide something that is recognisable as what it says on the box and at a good price. I like them a lot.

Very nice Carl and good realistic poses in a well planned setting.

Nice looking diorama Carl. That particular figure set is a little gem and you've done it justice. :nod:

Heres another one. The good thing about a lot of 1/35 figures these days is they automaticaly form dioramas.

Here is my take on the kit, thought I would fit them into a factory scene, doors and windows scratch built, walls Tamiya plus loads from spares box
