Battle of Tarawa - Diorama of the Day

by Paul Keefe

This is a 1/32nd scale figure diorama entitled 'Battle of Tarawa'. It depicts a group of U.S. Marines 'taking out' a Japanese pillbox on that island, during WW II. The figures were modified from the old (and still in my opinion excellent) Airfix sets. The 'wood pecker' type 92 heavy machine gun is from RPM (it's 1/35th, I could not find one in 1/32nd). The pill box is a plaster casting of one that I made for Farina Enterprises. The log wall and the palm tree were made completely from scratch.
