The Affair At Nery. Finally done and in its display. Waiting to be collected by the Army as its going in The Royal Artillery Museum in London. Thanks for all the interest in this, its taken twelve months!!. Mega thanks to Darren PM at Tommy's War whose support during the build has gone way beyond the call of duty.

Gary: How absolutely beautiful!! What an honor to have it displayed at the Royal Artillery Museum! A well deserved honor I might add. I've thought from the start that type of display was deserved. Again, congratulations.

You did a terrific job on this one Gary, it's looks absolutley brilliant.

Be sure to ask the RAM to send you some photos of it in place in the museum. Then post them here. Like Colin said.... you got the bragging rights my son.!!

I really enjoyed watching this one come together. The build was well written and a joy to follow. The finished diorama is something you just have to stare at for awhile to see all of it's wonder. Thank you for posting it here at Skid's Place.

Hi Gary,

I'm sorry, but I can't add anything to what has already been said about this absolutely S T U N N I N G bit of artwork Sir and I am without a doubt that each and every person that see's it in the museum will all think the same as we all do...

Hi Gary,

As Colin said Sir, this is truly a great honour, I think it will look fantastic on display as will everyone else who will see it and I am sure many will take photos of it home with them, so your work will be shown even further than just the museum...
