The weekend saw the official opening of Clives new display area for the Figarti range and so many of his customers came to see what was on offer. I knew some faces but met many new people so it was loverly to spend time chatting about various aspects of the hobby.

I had another interest as a model maker. I have made a number of displays for Clive over the last few years and all of them were being fully utilised in the display area. It was quite a kick seeing all that hard work being used to its full potential.
Here are a few photos of Clives displays biased towards my own work! All of these dioramas have been scratch built by me for Clive over the last 3 or 4 years:
|Hartstein Hotel, Arnhem 1944. The model is 4feet wide and 2 feet high.|
|Hotel from another angle|
|German railway station- 6ft x 3ft. Trains etc by Figarti|
|the station from another view. Just look at the railway kit that Figarti have made!|
|V2 rocket site. The rocket and vehicles again by Figarti (the railtrack and tunnel is not my work)|
|The bocage is my work but otherwise all Figarti- impressive allied armoured column or what!|
|ruined factory -2ft x 2ft diorama. Too much light reflecting off the display cover.|
|a slightly better shot of the factory. We are looking to expand this dio to double its size.|
|nothing to do with me this time but just an impressive model- about 4feet long with enough room for 5 or 6 AFV's!|
The first few are showing the overall working environment that was created to try to achieve the effects:
Finally some longer shots trying to get the look of the column
Next post is back to normal.
