Retreat diorama, 1943...

Posted by Rato Marczak on 09 Oct 2020, 13:02

This is something I finished a few years ago, thought I should share with you.

Lots of figures. Mostly Preiser, but also Orion and a few others.






Hope you like it.

Very nice indeed, with super photography to emphasise the work.

Great modelling , groundwork and composition.

I am not sure the poultry would be running around with hungry soldiers about though.

The building looks like it might have started off as an Airfix La Haie Sainte?

If so, a super conversion.


Best wishes,

I believe those gentlemen are not retreating. They are advancing to the rear.
