Panzer Aufsitzen

Panzer Aufsitzen!

Following the Photobucket saga, I have been uploading my images to Postimage which is a lot more efficient and has the added advantage that your efforts are not frustrated with advertisements ambushing you.

The model is set in Normandy 1944 and is a generic unit rather than a specific one in order to not cause offence. The base was an oven cooking tray, filled with sand, sculpted, dressed etc with a skyline made from wallpaper. My wonderful wife, Der Feldmarschall wanted the tray back so the photo record is all that is left.

I wanted to try and capture the ' moment' when the order was given to move off and action was imminent.







Happy modelling.

Wow, this is a very lively and realistic scene: hectic preparation for battle. Very nice, Chris. I also like that it is the whole scene that does it and not the individual models and figures. Great work!

Excellent rally point scene. Figures, tanks, and impromptu base are wonderfully created. Lots of subplots to catch the eye. Well done. Bill

Amazing! Your diorama absolutely mirrors the period photograph you included at top! ;-)

I love the fact that your dioramas are just temporary constructs and prone to the whims of your partner's baking schedule...
