OUTSKIRTS OF LENINGRAD
Scratch made diorama using 1:35 scale Tamiya figures. The building is made from scratch plus the I beams, drums, bench, wood floor, camo netting,rolled blankets and straps.
The tanker with both of his hands in his pockets left his Tiger I when it got hit with an anti tank round andhad no time to grab his winter coat. The rest of the crew didn'tsurvive the ordeal. He's using the heat from the fire to stay as warmas possible. All three German soldiers are stragglers from different units.
Horrors of War in the Cold
Life is a reality, specially in war. Very crule at best, war is something we should all be trying hard to eliminate. That being said, this is a very excellent depiction of the pain, anguish and suffering that happens during an average day on the battle field. In this scene I see some very frightened and thankful people. Afraid of what is ahead but thankful to still be alive. Good job and excellent topic.
Firer and Smoke
Contained within the scope of this particular Diorama, which brings to life the horrors and after effects from war. From the explosions that disintegrate what ever structure or person that lays within thy war path, is truly expressed within this diorama. This is represented by the scorched brickwork and smashed timber brick structure showing this destruction. While the splinters of history of someones pride and joy which also keeps the firer burning. Soldiers in the loll of battle slumber around on duty, while a lone soldier looks mystified into the makeshift fire pot in bewilderment. Thus giving the impression on just how cold and unforgiving war can be. I remember this particular diorama when it was posted in the Toy Collector blog arena. Very good skilled work indeed.
