The Red Ball Express Diorama

Here is another great military diorama made by Glen.

It is a 1/72 Scale Airfix/Heller model in a diorama called The Red Ball Express.

Lots more of Glen's Military diormas and tips right here


Glen Tellls us about this diorama:

The base is Oak. and the rest is  polystyrene  and wall filler plus scatter, the same a I made The Crashed Spitfire diorama . Researched information from the web for signs. The model is an Airfix 1/72 kit A01323  , the fencing is Italeri 6141, the barrels are white metal.

The soldier on the gun is from airfix us marine A 1716 cut about ( arms etc to  reposition  holding this gun) only the driver comes with the kit.
