diorama any of you guy's have seen. Feel free to discuss any that do not appear on any internet sites or mag. articles or those that have been seen in these medias as well. Maybe some reasons why. I know I have a couple of favorites of my own.

The first would be the Black and White Sherman diorama (I think it is linked to on the Archer's Transfers site). The ability to make it look like a photo with different tones of grays, blacks and whites is impressive.
Second would be the viginate I believed called "Mired in Hell" of a WW 1 German with a skeleton sharing his trench or shellhole.
Third was a one done at the 98 IPMS convention based on the movie "Sahara" with the building, Lulu Bell cover with a parachute and the troops maning the wall.
Always wanted to try and do that scene myself.
Those are my picks off the top of my head.

this U-boat dio. I'd love to make something similar one day but I'll doubt if I have the patience to work one such a huge project.

Allthough I really liked the duel at sea dio from the previous post.

that's impressive. I have a dio on another site that I thought was BIG, my wife wanted to throw me out for that one but this one is really impressive. I have seen Phil S's work many times before, I think he's one of the best out there.

1) Road to Damascus
2) Valley of Tears

Both are IDF dioramas, I don't remember other detail.

Cheers,
