Hello to all of you!
I'm a new member and this is my first article for you, hope you enjoy it! 🙂

This is my latest diorama - I've finnished it a few weeks ago. It shows the famous "Kohlenklau" (coal thief) of Unteroffizier Helmut Kohlke on the Eastern Front in spring 1943.
The Marder 2 is the Kit (#6423), the figures are from Dragon and Miniart.
I made the base out of foam board and plaster with gravel/little stones and the grass is seal hemp.
Painted is the whole thing with Vallejo Air and Revell acrylic colors.
