I build my old kits to make room. Only the Sherman looked too boring to me.
That's why I built the British infantry on it.
All figures are from HÄT with the exception of the standing soldier - he is from Esci.
Greetings, Jens Hilgraf

Nice work! But my experience is that dioramas take more space than boxes. :-D

:-D :drool: :-D :shock: Yes - LOL - you are absolutely right. I get space in the basement where the unbuilt models are. But it is getting narrower on the first floor. I would have asked before. Regards, Jens :-D

I love this little dio. You usually create present-day works but it is good to see that your WWII projects are also performed to a high standard.

Lovely modelling and great painting .

To my mind it’s too clean but it’s still great .

You have really done a good job on the Hat chaps.

Very nicely made Dio. I particularly like the figures. At the Sherman's: it's too clean for me too, and I think you didn't paint the rubber pads on the castors. Otherwise everything is great.
Congratulations on the beautiful Dio.

Nice work on this Sherman and the HaT British infantry tank riders.

As others have said, more dust, dirt and grime on the tank would look good. But the standard of the dry-brushing here looks very good to me.

I am also a bit confused as to what campaign this is being modelled for. Tunisia? Sicily? The base colour on the tank looks like the 'light mud' colour that the British army used in Italy in 1943/44, although the HaT tank riders are not in the warm weather dress for that climate?

This is so wrong... Correct sentence would be:

"I build my old kits to make room for new kits".

But your work is very good so I forgive you this mistake :xd: :xd: :xd:

Another fantastic diorama, praga. The tank and the figures are great, but the terrain is also excellent. :thumbup:
