WWI Austro-Hungarian hangar and airfield (Pergine, Italy, 1916) 1:72 scratchbuilt
October 8, 2015 in Uncategorized
Finally finished this quite huge project. This will be part of the collection of the new aircraft museum in Szolnok which will open (hopefully) this year. The diorama will be the part of the WWI exhibition with 10 Albatros fighters (they made by another modelers since I had no time to make them). If You interested in the project and process You can see the whole thread in the group section (dioramas). The only thing that was scary that the base was much wider than the doors of our flat 😀 so we needed some ingenuity to bring it out. 😀 This was my biggest diorama ever built and I think I can hardly beat this for a while in this manner 🙂 As I’m not a wwI guy I havn’t got any ww1 plane in 1:72 at home so I used a Siskin for the pics just for size comparison – a strange visitor on a KuK airfiled :). The trees are from Noch (the only i could buy locally), not too lifelike but fills the bill as they weren’t too expensive. If I had more time (and money) for the project I would try replicate them with something better. Thank You for looking!
