Work at the moment dominants’ most of my concentration and efforts; however, in a moment of lapsed concentration I gave some thought to our hobby and while browsing through some of Peter Guilders images...it occurred to me that his was some of the best Sudan Diorama's of his time...and so by way of a small celebration of his work...although it is 25mm...I thought I would post a few more of his images and some extra nice stuff which was surely influenced by him.
Let the pictures do the talking...
