The Project - Modelling an LRDG scene

Project Main / Available Model Kits / The Landscape / Vehicles and Figures / List of models used / General considerations / Other Models

I am currently working on a 1/76 scale diorama depicting an LRDG base camp in late 1942 (although I took the liberty to include a WB Chevrolet and a Ford F30, both of which were no longer in service at that time). Although the whole thing is far from being completed, you will already find a number of images of my work in progress, as well as general information about LRDG model kits.
