SMy Daughter's Airfix D-Day Diorama - with Additions

We haven't had the weather yet for an outdoor photoshoot. The way the UK weather is going now, Summer may well be over! I'd still like to try and get out for a real backdrop, but for now, here's a multitude of pictures from an indoor shoot, taken at both eye level and from above. Some I've turned black and white, while some others have just been desaturated a bit and red increased to try and replicate wartime Kodachrome film.

Shame the posts have been approved in the wrong order as the first set of final pictures and text should come after the post above. I expected them to appear in the thread in the order in which they were posted. Oh well, tis done now! Not sure what our next project will be.

Thank you for sharing your daughter's build with us.

I am in awe of your daughter's dedication that is a great build , patience is a lost cause with most young ones nowadays.

Fyi For barbed wire I use the wire that comes in picture hanging kits.

Give a man a fish he will eat for one day teach him how to Google and he will leave you in peace forever.

Ah, picture hanging wire. I wouldn't care, I have some in the workshop, just forgotten all about it!!

Possibly a Tamiya 1/35 Willys MB Jeep, modelled on one of my own 1/1 scale Jeeps.
