Hello Jean Bernard,

I thought you would not go to expos ?

So tell us please if you got any price for it. (not that it is important)

Cheers
Claude

Hi Claude -well this expo was at half an hour *walking* from my home so..
I arrived at the opening at 9am on saturday, left 10 mn later and took the dio back 10 mn before the closing on Sunday so you see, I am not very good at public relations
It was a fig show called Lugdunum, and no i didn't win anything -not that it was important indeed
plenty of pics of the show
thanks for asking anyway
here

Simply superb, and forget taking your work to model shows, JBA, you need a studio of your own!

Thanks Peter, but honestly i 've always been knowing my own diorama promised land was certainly not paved with gold medals from shows
But i would still go for the friends. maybe see you at Telford in one year or 10!

Jean-Bernard,

Your work as always is just spectacular. I hope to someday do a diorama so fully realized. I do follow my interests now and let them inspire me. I am growing very tired of the same old types of subjects. I am starting a figure company with my best friend and our subject matter is inspired by history, but civilian history rather then military history. Every one who has seen our first three figures has really liked them. I only hope that our figures add to the hobby the way your work does.

Best
Jeff

I just saw this, and JBA, my friend, all I can say is, you are a genius. While most dioramists try to faithfully replicate reality, you go much further, and try to replicate a moment of your self. Fantastic work.

JBA I really admire your creative skills,such as using cigarette paper for clothes and such. Taking the time to explain your techniques and the reasons behind them is truly a learning experience for me. It would be a joy to see your projects in person. Keep it up! rR

HI JBA
For some reason I never replied/posted first time around ... so I´ll do so this time. Have always loved your models, and its always great to see them brought back again. Even the still water looks great!!

Thanks Michael for unearthing such an old thing, it still looks okay after 3 years..

Than you Franck, the "reverse water" method is completely crazy to be honest and I wouldn't do this again. but i still like the way i treated the green colours.
Someday i might change the guy which is the weak point of the scene
