Francesco modeled a wonderful hospital for our Danube diorama, for the DIORAMICA. He is also painting these figures himself, otherwise it would be too short.

Fantastic special figures from Francesco Messori for the Danube-Diorama.


Almost all the pieces are painted first ones:voltigeurs catching the weapons after the swim in the Danube

Stunning stuff as always.

The surgeon group is very animated and the Priest is lovely.

Looking forward to seeing it all come together.

Best wishes,

Hi Wolfgang.

Beautiful and the ambulance scene is excellent.

A small point but may I suggest your dead are too dark?

The deoxygenated blood following death will result in cyanosis causing the bodies to turn a blue gray/ white colour . These dead look too healthy!

Best wishes,

Chris

We had another member produce nude figures...….
:coffee: I think perhaps he often looks in.

The figures should sell perhaps an end of year sale might
induce more people to splash out cash on these wonderful poses.
I wish you have great success with them. BB

Really impressive projet with the wonderful new figures of Franznap....
What will the austrians do in the foreground of your last picture? Have they lost their orientation? Or they are spies or assasins?
