Fantastic work there Rob.
Seeing it all together is wonderful.
The inter action between pieces tells many stories.
Well done mate.

Thanks, Simon, and thanks for looking in on the WIP thread in dios last month.

Absolutely marvelous Rob!!! This is the part of modeling that requires that special skill to narate a story without using words. You clearly mastered that art perfectly!!!
Ralph Clements said on December 28, 2014
Wow! Things folks post here never cease to amaze me…….this is incredible! How large is it overall? Where will this end up, a museum somewhere? I am curious because I can’t imagine someone would build something like this without a plan for it after it is built
I am VERY impressed!
Hi Ralph. It’s about 70cm x 60cm (about 24 x 28 inches). No plans really, just had the idea and wanted to execute it.

Congratulations to this piece of art, Rob ! You can “surf” again and again through the pictures and find everytime a new and nice detail.
The tractor for example, is highly detailed and perfect weathered, love the metallic effect of the tracks.
The battle damage of the 109 looks realistic and well done.
Thanks, Bernd. The 109 is an Eduard E1 ‘deconstructed’ for the scene.
Yes i followed your building ( did i miss something ? )
Love your “deconstructive” creativity 😉

Awesome Rob! It tells a story without words!
Thanks for looking in.

Rob you were right, it all became one on the final stage. Enjoyed watching this WIP. Something like this would probably take me the rest of my modeling life & you did it in what 6 weeks?
Incredible. Now comes the hardest part, keeping the dust off it.
Yes, will probably just tape together a carboard box to fit over the frame rebate (I’m fairly low-tech).

A lot of thought and effort really shines through, Rob….nice work.

Hi Matija. Just noticed I’d missed saying ‘cheers’ for looking in. Thanks.
By the way, I have two other earlier dios posted here – “Endgame” and “Big Fish” in a similar ‘style’ if of interest.
“Big Fish” Revisited
Endgame – Berlin 1945

Cheers, Chuck. Thanks.

Rob, that’s the most moving story in model form I think I’ve ever seen. You’ve portrayed it all in exquisite detail: not only the hardware but the people too. Just superb!
Rob Pollock said on December 29, 2014
Thanks, Tony. I appreciate your comments.

Very Very nice Rob. A big well done. The multiple story lines really add to the attraction of your diorama. Way cool.
Paul Mahoney said on December 29, 2014
Really nice Rob. Just went through the pics for a 3rd time. I am particularly drawn to the figure sitting down next to the dozer. Great detail on all of it, but for some reason that one really stood out. Beautiful work – as others have said, it really tells a story without words! thanks for posting it!
Thanks, Paul. The figure is from Stalingrad Miniatures (if they can’t do nice Russian figures, who can?!) I wanted a more relaxed figure here, having rigged up the chains to pull the aircraft down from the tree, he’s having a coffee first, but with the added measure of disdain for the enemy that his seat is the main 109 canopy.

Wow, top work Rob!
George Williams said on December 30, 2014
There is so much to look at and think about with this, Rob, really great, imaginative work, and beautifully executed, you must be very pleased with the outcome
Rob Pollock said on December 31, 2014
Thanks, George. Yes, an interesting project, if difficult to photograph.
