    I'm holding the whole thing upside-down, so I can figure out the lenght of the wires, man they are realy realy thin..

    It's realy funny, how it hoovers over the diorama, and every little gust of wind makes it move very slowly..

    When I asked for a jeep (to go into this diorama) within an hour Rob Carleen sent me this betaversion , thanks again Rob
    It came in two versions, the army and the one I 'm going tobuild, the firetruck on the photo of the background is one parked, so it fits in very good..
    The kit is not very difficult, but has realy nice detail, specialy the tires look interesting..
