Not really a diorama but as it was its purpose, I'll post it here.

As far as I know, there are 4 different types :
- "Beachhead display base" (visible in Alan Hall Volume 1 p24),
- "Jungle display base" (A.H. Vol 1 p39),
- "Lunar display base" (A.H. Vol 1 p 67) et
- "Foxhole display base" (A.H. Vol 1 p91).

This is the Foxhole display base I bought in North Weald this sunday :

Foxhole display base P1070310

Foxhole display base P1070311

Foxhole display base P1070312

Foxhole display base P1070313

Foxhole display base P1070314

Foxhole display base P1070315

With Sgt Rock inside to give an idea of its size :

Foxhole display base P1070316

Foxhole display base P1070317

Foxhole display base P1070318

Foxhole display base P1070319

That's a great piece Didier an a cracking price, though cracking may not be a great choice of words with these. :-)

From memory, I think these were the first pieces Bob Brechin designed when he came to Pallitoy????
