Superb. Really brings it alive

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Impressive is an understatement for that.

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

Fantastic looking diorama, very realistic! I noticed it looked too good to be 1/43, but still amazingly detailed.

As an old railway modeler once told me "less track more scenery". He was so right.

I like the wet look to the road and the figures appear to be well painted too. An extremely rewarding piece of work. So much to learn looking at these types of dioramas.

At least the cars have a driver figure.

How many dioramas never include the driver??

Nice observation with the headlight pointing the wrong way
