Great work, like allways. Great diversity of figures and each one in a story.
The motorcyclist looks great, nice figure, never see that before.

I love most that tracked tower-carrier with the camoflage netting. What material did you use for that netting?

Spectacular result. Diorama with great atmosphere. Top notch vehicles, figures, and base work. Wounded guy in cart is my favorite.

I get it around 2004!
It is very nice.
But if you cover something, it is logically harder to see what is under these cammo net. So I took pic from the open back of the RSO (Raupen Schlepper Ost, tracked tractor east)
Finally to this case my use is rarely. The plane beside is my second use of it.

Thank`s for the nice comment.

I like the diorama very much. :yeah: So many details !!! And again funny ideas like for example the horse which pulls the VW. :shock: I really did not see anything like that in a diorama. :-D
But what I really like is the house !!!!! Falling plaster, graffiti at doors and walls, posters and and and ... Class !!!! :thumbup:

He is a light modification of an MIG dispatched rider set who all figure are simply stay.
It is easy to modified it. How I do it?
So we all now know Kostis wife get an hair dryer. I borrow it. :mrgreen:
Use maybe your own hair dyer for the left foot an bend it little bit upward.
The right leg downward a little bit back and the foot a bit more too.
Lean the motorbike in an small angle to the "hot" rider.
The rider itself is a little bit in an angle forward. Only the right foot touch the ground.
Add the 90° right arm to the figure and the handlebar.
Adjust the whole (bike and rider) with a straight left arm to the other side of the handlebar.
Reading is more complicate as if you try it.

That`s right.
It was not so easy but
Wiking get Leakes to inform you about M.T. .
She is like a bird.

The following information is only for you and not for the public.
TOP SECRET !!!
:sst:


Image
Born in Slovenia grown up as a western girl in North Africa. Left side to her headgear you see in Arabic numbers her trainer!

Image
Then catch as a communist resistance in Italy.
It was given her an offer that she could`t beat out.

To make Allied planes, partisans or Tito troops attacking on the German retreat street wrong or worthless.
And give fake photos to the Allied of extensive successes with her attacks. The :camera: is in her handbag if the Allied ask how she get the pictures. As she is doing so in the retreat Dio.

Image
But the Allied pay back. Bombed out somewhere in Germany.

Image
The last known picture of her, to meet D.T. .

She speak: Italian, German, Slovenian and Arabic fluent.
The last I have heard is that she is on the way without her handbag but
with a hair dryer to Greece.

Excellent diorama. I love the whole effect of the vehicles- really looks like an army in retreat!
