As the theme last year at Scottish Nationals was "Battle of Britain" I had this idea as to what I'd like to do.
Most people will be thinking about aircraft so I thought I'd do something different so here are some pictures of my rendition of "Danger UXB"

Found very few pictures on the web so worked with 3 or 4 pictures I could find.
Base was a corner block of polystyrene out of a packing box.
The bomb was off one of the guys from my model club.
The figures were made up of different kits and A frame just 3 plastic rods.
If you look closely I even managed to put the fuse wires on the detonator.
I built it over 3 nights and am happy with how it has come out.
Hope you guys like it,
Steve C Jnr

SAS007,

Thank you for the photos of your "Danger UXB" vignette.
A great tribute (in miniature) to the UXB workers that faced hazardous duty on the job.

That is a great way to show the 'dug-out' profile.

I remember a television series Called "Danger UXB" a few years ago. I did not get a chance to see it, but heard it was very popular during viewing times. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danger_UXB

Thank you and looking forward to more of your dioramas and builds here on planetarmor.
