I registered just before christmas though I've not posted anything yet. Some of the knowledge and information here as been invaluable as I've built an Isandlwana diorama, thank you. Not much of a first post, can't even work out how to load a picture of my diorama but here's a link to the blog I've put all my pics on, hope it meets the high standard of some of the others I've seen here -http://isandlwanadiorama.blogspot.com/

Cheers

Thanks Cisco. Glad you like. Having difficulties uploading - will figure how to do this. I'll get many more pics on the blog at the weekend. I've just put my album online - hopefully you can see it

Steve O it more than meets the standard it stands on it's own. Your painting of the figures and the way you've posed and photograph them have brought them to life. Your depiction of the battle is outstanding with the placement of the wagons and tents along with the individual scenes of the battle are something to behold. Thank you good sir for creating the diorama and sharing it with us.

An amazing piece of work. A labour of love if ever there was one. Great effort Sir!

For some reason I never saw this on its original post.
Incredible is really the only description.

Well done

Bravo is very beautiful

I hope to also post in before the end of the century, but I want to finish everything before or almost, I'm not out of the woods ...

Finally I get there one day, by cons take pictures, it is a real chore for me...

Cheers

Roguefish and Springbok, thanks for the compliments.

Such has been my desire for realism and perfection that I took most of that diorama apart and rebuilt with more and better figures. Still haven't figured out how to post pictures on here but they're all on http://isandlwanadiorama.blogspot.co.uk/ - but note that it's up for auction. It didn't sell at the last auction but up again in March sometime. I need the space before I start building the next one.

Cheers

Steve
