Some very nice conversions and a good ' feel' of the action. The lady on the tank looks very composed and I love the cas vac idea.

Best wishes. Chris

A lot of action going on and in that sense a typical Wiking diorama! But I can not see a lady on a tank! Maybe inside the tank???

I absolutely love your presentation of these dioramas, how your photography reveals the unfolding action bit by bit to create a narrative. Always a real treat to see. Thanks!

Hello Mr G.

The lady sitting on the Sherman's mudguard. This presumably is a sniper with the rifle and the hair is certainly a little long for your average Russian crew cut.

Best wishes. Chris

There's a nasty hole in the front of that tank and I don't think it's for seeing out of :shock:

Thanks for the extra view. I was looking at the same figure but had a different interpretation.

The little boy in the stahlhelm standing on the chair with the MP40 hanging down from the strap surrendering is a heartbreaking image to me. I think a hobby diorama can become art when presented this way. What a brutal situation that war created, and came home to Berlin in 1945. Wiking you have done a beautiful job telling a story, even though it is a sad one. Thanks for sharing.

And again a masterpiece !!!! :yeah: Where to begin with the praise? Interesting vehicles, lots of fantastic figures in great poses, great building, and and and ..... incredible! :shock: What really fascinates me are the street lanterns with the signs of the street names! Beautifully painted and realistic aged. Great! An eye-catcher .... :-D

Epic diorama....depicting the fierce hand to hand combat that took place in the closing days of WW2 in Europe. Pure eye candy....so many captivating subplots. Old men and children facing enraged Red troops....humanity went insane! Paintwork and scene coposition are top notch. Bill
