At last! I was only wondering a few days ago why that amazing SOGA set hadn’t made an appearance here since it was announced in the Figures forum over a year ago maybe? You’ve sure done it justice, imaginative idea & great execution all round - interesting to see if portraying a technicolor yawn instead of the other likely bodily function is considered more PC. Great job

Ha ha! Not since your Pyro Junk, Tim! *Nudge Nudge Wink Wink*

The only thing missing is the old-timer who never seems to have any ill effects other than having to water the shrubs.

Awesome dio!

Thanks one and all, and appropriately enough my name is 'Ralph'

The Saga figures, both these and the US Airborne set are really well done!

I do like designing the occasional light-hearted dio. Years ago I did the 'Max Arnold's Drive Thru' diorama.

And, for the record, I screwed up - the additional figures are from MasterBox.

Carry on and stay healthy...

Absolutely amazing what you present here. Alcoholic combat exhaustion at its best! 😉😁

BRAVO !!
A great idea, a great build and a very different and refreshing way of showing life at war. Congratulations... and a modest comment : "Maison de la presse" means "news/books shop" in french ... but reading can be sometime exhilarating )

Great dio; I really like the figures sleeping (it off) in the Hanomag and the detail of the building, tree etc is first-rate. That being said I didn't care much for the kneeling guy (Ralph?) as he seems utterly bald which I just thought was odd. Just saying...

This is a fun diorama, thanks for sharing it with us. I imagine that one guy would stand next to the vomiter and say in German, "Say it, I will never do this again... say it!"

Merde! I swear I looked at period photos and found one that appeared to be a pic of a winery with that name.
In any case, thanks for the comment.

Thanks, and that poor slob is meant to be bald. That's an aftermarket head (Hornet, I think) added to a MasterBox figure. I thought it would help draw even more attention to him, and his sad state. That said, I do find it hard to pull off - painting a bald figure...

Excellent french Ralph ! And thank you for your fair reaction and positive answer. If you need some input in "français" next time, feel free to ask. I will be delighted to help... even for 0,0009% extra quality

All the best
