It's now just over a week until the exhibition at the National Army Museum opens. For anyone still hoping to attend one of the lectures and private exhibitions on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st October, these are now sold out, but we are negotiating extra spaces so any requests will be positively received.
My lack of post in recent days is explained by the sheer effort of getting the job done. 30,000 figures is no small undertaking!
I took advantage of a sunny day today to lay out all five dioramas: Papelotte, Plancenoit, La Belle Alliance, Hougoumont and La Haie Sainte.
Here are some photos from Plancenoit which I hope you enjoy. They were taken by a very talented photographer, called Rupert Barclay so I'd like to thank him for taking these pictures:
