‘Lest We Forget’ Exhibit Papatoetoe

I previously posted about Nick Papadopoulos quest for 1/72 scale figures & human volunteers to help complete ANZAC Day 2015 exhibits he was working on – Nick managed to get the figures he needed and with some hard work complete his dioramas.

The resulting ‘Lest We Forget’ exhibition was displayed at the Youthline Building in Papatoetoe (Auckland, New Zealand) from ANZAC Day (25 April) until 9 May 2015. These are some photos taken during the set up of the exhibits but before all figures and such have been added. Well done Nick.
