Okay i thought id better start a thread on this one. Im not entirely decided on how to do this, im actualy tempted to use a 1:48 as the main subject and 1:72 for the others. Im open to ideas here.

Ollie, it's good to see you back, but I think we already had this discussion earlier this year -- you might relook this thread viewtopic.php?f=196&t=2835. In short the comments were to use the CBK, especially PK-1, itself and fake the others via art/cut-outs/etc ....

I do remember that discussion and the plan is to build the 4 and see what works, my feeling is just the two closest to the camera as models might work.

You, sir, are a masochist. Stout effort though! Should look very impressive when done.

How are you getting on Ollie? We could do with having some idea of what your are producing so that we can plan the display. This is a SIG not a secret society! :mrgreen:

James,
Sorry im not very good at taking photos. The Furies are all together, i am waiting for the paint to dry on the background now before assembling the diorama. I will post a photo later, i a very pleased with this one. Do you need dimensions? This isnt a small one.
