great one again, thanks for sharing Mark! I just really love the variety of settings / colours of the pictured models -when seeing those pics you just want to see more of the dioramas -like the one with the small landing with the Hurricane on the top.
Special mention on the sea of the "K18" which is one of the best i have ever seen on such reduced scales great Russian ship Koreetz-like too!

Thanks everyone, Jean-Bernard, the photos don't have captions of course but just to clear up some of the names, the ships are 'K18' HMS Campanula, the Russian ship is the minelayer Amur and the small diorama is an embarkation rather than a landing, Dunkirk. I will send some more of these in once I sort myself out.

Cheers
