I finished the Normandy-diorama yesterday.
The ruin and debris were painted with an airbrush. I used some MIG and Vallejo Pigments to give the debris a realistic look.
The furniture is from Verlinden, other details, like rain pipes and shutters are from MiniArt.

Airfix 1/600 HMS Warspite

by Kasper Fischer

I have never tried to build a ship but I have, over the last couple of years been gathering momentum to try one out. I really want to try the new 1/200 USS Arizona for the 50 year anniversary of Pearl Harbour and I really need to try out some other ships as well. The next ship I'll build is the 1/350 HMS King George V from Tamiya.

Dioramas in progress in 1/35 scale

by Michael Rieß

I want to show you my current diorama projects. The first one will show a combat scene in a ruin in Normandy 1944, including a Panzer IV H from Dragon and several figures from Dragon and Zvezda.
The ruin itself is from Royal Model and consits only of the big walls. I made the details of the interior and the debris by my own.
Destroyed furniture and other belongings to the house will be added on a later stage.

The second one shows a very peaceful scene. A little girl is sitting on a fountain, observed by a small cat.
The fountain is from MK35, the girl figure from Masterbox, the cat from Academy and the fence and the street lamp are from MiniArt. I want to add more details and figures.

Dragon 1/35 Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H

by Kasper Fischer

Another episode of the Japanese TV show, Plamo Tsukurou Custom. This time it's the Panzer IV and a bunch of scratch-build, hand-sculpted German figures. The last couple of shows have been quite weak but this time they really returns to centre.

Enjoy fellas...
