    P7350 Fly's Again – my rebuilt and revitalised Spitfire is my second entry for the B of B GB. Having finished the model some time ago, I decided to try my hand at my first diorama. Having done it, I'm not sure which was more fiddly, the Spit cockpit or the little people. Below is the outcome.

    Very cool Vic. Great work on the model and figures. They look like the ICM ones but without the dog.

    Love it! I particularly like the pose of the pilot, looks like he really has just jumped off the wing. And I guess the Corporal on the wing is saying "Undercarriage lever a bit sticky was it, Sir?" (Followed by what, after the pilot's reply? 50 pints to the winner - Jan's paying !!)

    Wonderful job Vic. Very nice little diorama. Proves you don't need a lot of space to do a superb job.
