General Road - 1/35

Greetings, modelers!

As I have little space to store diorama work, I thought about making one that could be used to rehearse various scenes or vehicle&figures positioning studies and also lighting&photos. As time went by, I gathered some studies that I would like to show you.

The original base with the first attempts. 6 Pounder AT Gun and destroyed german vehicles.

Abandoned T-34/85 and german soldiers.

I’m not sure about what variety of tree they are. They look some kind of pine trees - the only ones I can make by myself using Aspargus Fern. Thank you.

Using the same diorama base as in previous work to highlight figures of British troops.

Collecting figures of U.S. Soldiers from the ETO, and placing them on the same temporary base to take some pictures.

Thanks

Well, just to put an end on this. A collection of german destroyed equipment. I call it The End, but…not really :upside_down_face:

For those who may be interested, there are some more photos, as well as other works on this personal blog. https://gemerim.blogspot.com/

Thank you very much for all kind of comments, visits and reactions :+1:.

Another good thing about this Dio base plate … With a bit of tidying up around the battle damaged ground areas, this could easily represent any part of NW Europe , Germany, Poland, Latvia, France, Sweden etc … A perfect setting for … A Cr1 and warrior, Chieftain and 432, Leopard and Marders, T64 and BTR, M1 and Bradley’s…so many scenarios…:+1:

I believe this battleground will exchange hands for many years to come! Nice work(s)! :hammer_and_wrench: :art::paintbrush:

I like the animation of your figures, their poses tell a story.

Hello, Jhonny.
I had already tried to make an urban diorama with this same purpose. It didn’t work as well as this one because here you just need to move some trees and bushes around and you can give the scene a different look. In this line of thought you can also go back even further in time. For example the Napoleonic era. Thank you for the nice comment.

Mike,
this is the goal. As there is no more space for large dioramas, the solution involves an arrangement like this. Thank you for your comment.
