|Trimotion and La Belle Alliance|
Over the weekend, we staged an exhibition of the model in our local village hall. The exhibition raised money for Waterloo Uncovered and was accompanied by a lecture. The event was staged over two nights and was sold out on each night. Here are some photos from the exhibition.

Simply amazing and awe inspiring work!ReplyDelete
I am so pleased that this was well supported Mark, as it should be. I'd have been there (on both nights) if it were possible!ReplyDelete
Thank you for posting these lovely photos so that we who are distant from the real thing can enjoy, goggle and have our breath taken away!
It is simply astounding how far you and your helpers have taken this. You must have to pinch yourself at times? Your vision, dedication and coordination have all been worth it. I cannot believe how it continues to grow and grow and to become so amazing that the adjectives have all been used up!
I hope that you are able to find a suitable, tennis court-sized venue to house the final stupendously amazing diorama.
Thank you James!ReplyDelete
