Shelf diorama: German HQ

I'm not sure if I ever posted pictures of this shelf diorama, which I created about 3 years ago. As it was time to make room for another shelf diorama, I decided to log it for posterity (well, for as long as Photobucket will host it).
The diorama depicts a local German HQ, where a few famous german Generals have gathered to discuss tactics.
Enjoy the pictures!











This was my first scratch built diorama that I finished and since then I think I have learned a bit or two, especially after visiting forums like this one and others.
Please forgive the low quality pictures, I still need to find a better way to create even lighting so my camera will be better able to capture the fine details.

Re: Shelf diorama: German HQ

First I have seen this, I'm glad you posted it . I really like all the radio communications set up. Contained sets like this are perfect for a shelf diorama. An HQ office like this offers all kinds of potential scenes.

Cheers
Tim

Looks really sharp. Great job.

A map on the wall would be a nice touch.
