Meng MkV Male with interior. Then and Now

Meng MkV Male with full interior. Half as it might have been in 1918 and half as it might look in a modern day museum. Also with bonus 3d printed diorama or the diorama.

This is one of my favourite dioramas I’ve seen. As above, I love the diorama in the diorama.

Beautiful idea that is expertly modelled- I really enjoyed seeing this. The contrast in the two sides is very finely observed with the dirt, grime, rust, mud, dings and dents really bringing the WW1 side to life. The figures are nicely posed too and also give a great idea of the scale of the tank. Great color and variety in the groundwork on that side too.

The opposite museum display side is lovingly crafted with the cut-out panels showing the detailed interior and having the side gun set away from the tank allows that interior detail to shine in particular on that part. The placard explaining the display is a great touch and perhaps the neatest detail of all is the tiny 3d print showing the WW1 dio itself. Congrats on this incredibly fine work.

This is a unique and original idea, carefully crafted and expertly executed. It shines in so many ways. The grittiness of the battlefield side contrasted with the showroom quality of the museum side is brilliant. The details throughout are superb. The little diorama is an excellent focal point.

The interior is 50/50 too weathered differently was a bit of a task trying to remember what was what.

On the modern side you could have a grandfather pointing out something to the grandson.
