  1. Operation Veritable was succinctly summarised as being of 'Mud and Mines' and so I wanted to do diorama which summed this up. Took around 3 months of fairly continuous work, my first 1/35 models ever (seems like 'first' is all I ever say but I had started modelling back in March this year, in 1/72 scale.) Its brush painted and mostly scratch built. I built the base, signage, ground works, vegetation, the booby trapped mine and mines, fence, tree stump, scarecrow, some of the carriers stowage (the sandbags, areal with flag, the satchels with the maps, the bag in the back and the roll sacks). Some of inspiration and ref pics below: Ok so obviously not a UC but gave me the initial idea: This is the 9th Camaronians in the Reichswald. Note the general detritus at the road side, including a ripped out door frame. http://ww2talk.com/index.php?attachments/br-offensive-n-holland-27-jpg.186292/ This is taken from Holland but helped with the water effects: Also from the Reichswald (not sure of the unit): The 2nd Argyll's in Normandy (where gecko got their idea for the figures from). Now onto the dio itself: My initial sketch: Barely make out the dropped rifle under the murky water (top right). The bag pipes came with a decal which I would never have been able to fit so I ended up painting the tartan on. Its a difficult balance to strike with regards to the mines as I had to try make them be seen, as they were the whole point and title but also not very obvious to spot which would have been realistic to the soldiers in the piece. Hopefully your might be just able to make them out in the above and below pic (Their was four in total but really only three ended up visible. Played with a cold filter for the pic below: Note the booby trapped mine under sarge sten gun's boot. The link wire cutting across the front of the resin water, in front of the ducks Thanks for viewing. Paul.
