....body count unknown?

Disaster struck this weekend when one of Sam's award winning 1/9 Breyer model horse? (called Flame aparently) fell off the shelf and came crashing down on my Desert Storm diorama I made many years back .

I had been thinking of breaking the dio down and putting it into storage (due to the dust trap that it is, as seen in the photo) until we could get our own place. but this disaster left me with no option really. there has been minimal damage to the vehicles (surprisingly) but the figures are worse for wear, Most of them are accounted for but I'm still missing a hand, a foot, an arm and a few aerials. Flame suffered a minor (5mm) paint transfer to the neck.

Here's some old pics of what the dio looked like before the giant horse fell from the sky

I had a similar occurance many years ago when a motorcycle helmet fell onto a Falshirmjager in France dio. NOTHING survived unscathed.
