More great looking work from Mr Perry.  He's really good at groundwork, and at replicating burnt-out vehicles.  Are the figures Rubicon protoypes, or someone else's?

Well done. Nice models in a great diorama. Are they Rubicon figures?

The setts are very good, how were they made?

I think about three people might ask questions about the tram tracks, their gauge and is that a conduit power supply?

[Edit] later photographs make everything clearer. Sorry.

Excellent, and that explains the track, two tracks not three rails (in the initial photographs you cannot see the outer rail).

thx, yeah I googlefu'd some old track gauges then tried to match them to the photos as best I could. there's a lot of angles with curving track and the position of the tank.

That's awesome . The sag of the track and the lower suspension really make it look like that Kitty burn hot , well done Steve

The more you look, the more you see. Just noticed the open bins on the back. Amazing.

I think the groundwork is the most impressive feature.  Those cobblestones look totally lifelike to me.

 Beautiful job, I particularly like how you did the tracks on the burned out Panther :)
