Not only is it something I've never seen before, but it's well done. This would be one I'd love to see in person! Imagination meets ability!

Great concept, and well done! The shredded front tire is a great touch! Maybe it blew out and caused the wreck!

Thanks guys. Sam, you are right. That was the reason for the accident. ;) But the driver made it out 'ok'.

Thanks to you both. Dave, the truck chassi was originally used as an experimental military truck with armors. I removed the cab and built a new one. I jusr re-weathered the chassi and added a few other details.

The diorama is really impressive and the subtle (not to heavy) weathering puts it over the top. Beautiful work!

Outstanding weathering, and very nice subject matter too. And I can't believe you used styrofoam for the base and made it look so good. Excellent all around. Thanks for sharing, Charles.

Thanks Virgil. I will eventually use wooden frames around the base to hide the not-so-pretty surface. Maybe a pic frame all around would look nice.

A lot of military modelers do that to their dioramas . . . use a picture frame.
