As many enthusiasts, I got bit carried away and taken as my first project a large-scale diorama from the American Civil War with proportions of 6*4 feet (2-1.2 meters). The diorama is in 1/72 scale.
For the project I have used model soldiers from Imex, Revell and Italieri, which I have also customized to create casualties or more interesting poses. In total, I have used more than 300 soldiers, 20 cavalry and 12 guns with crew. This is only my first project, and I am continuing to learn more from your blogs and good work.
