Endgame – Berlin 1945
November 16, 2013 in Armor
While I’ve been absent-mindedly progessing (well, we’ll call it that) with my Royal Caroline wooden ship, and from time to time checking out the lovely builds on iM (and, just to keep in the loop, posting a few builds I’ve completed in the past few months), it ocurred to me that I haven’t seen so many dioramas here, apart from a few striking aircraft vignettes.
I notice too that there isn’t a category for dios per se, so I’ve put “Endgame” into the Armor section.
The buildings are from Miniart, and not for the faint-hearted. I sliced away the cobbled street area form the kerbstone, to give the impression of a wider street area, the empty ‘V’ of space then infilled with the Dragon T-34, debris, and other rubble.
The tank riders are from VLS Warriors, and the German tank killers are from a Tamiya set. I used a Plus Models set of a tailor’s shop for other items to the rear elevation, and the whole scene is set on a timber disc. Other stuff I just made up.
At exhibitions, I set it on a battery-powered turntable, and it goes round at a slow pace for viewing.
Back to capstans and gunwales.
