Bart built the 15cm s.I.G.33 Panzer I Ausf B from Dragon with Friulmodel tracks and ET Model photo etch. The figures are from a wide range of manufacturers including; ANT-Miniatures, Stalingrad, Bravo 6, Tahk, Takahashi, Royal Model, and Hornet. Some of the figures were altered or converted for meet the needs of the diorama. The house, well, fence, retaining wall and tree are all scratch built using a wide range of different materials including; plastic, wood, plaster, brass, and a few spare photo etch parts.

Comments

Hi all, Thanks for the comments. I'll have to disagree about the tree. I have a few wild apple trees growing on my property and along my road and I don't think I'm too far off...I could have made the trunk split a bit closer to the ground but other than that is pretty close to what I can see out my window...lol. Wild apple trees always look a lot different than the kind you will see at a tree farm. The bark is rough and the leaves are smaller and grow in clusters...again close to what I have...obviously not identical. I'm not a big fan of sea foam and sprinkling leaves on...that's fine for model railroad or war gaming but I prefer to see the leaves. As for the flowers and time of year...they are actually supposed to be lilies which grow wild all over world and normally bloom during the summer and continue in the fall. Biggles2 - I made the apples with milliput not pepper corn. Again...thanks for the comments. Bart

The teeth, the water on the hair, the fingernails, the missing paint on the building, etc. Amazing level of minute detail. Your pictures are a great reference for so many things.

Surprised we are discussing apple trees but that's ok...lol...could be worse! Anyway, Apple trees can look different depending on if they are pruned or not. The apple trees most people see are in tree farms and have the tops cut off so they stop growing tall and grow wide...making it easier to collect the apples for sale. Apple trees that are not pruned grow like most other trees. It is not uncommon see apple trees growing naturally in the country side. I have a few around my house. I've attached a couple examples...not saying I'm 100% accurate...it is a 1/35 scale model and my "shrinking machine" has been acting up lately...hahaha

I like the vehicle and figures displayed (was that a Dragon kit?) and don't give a "fig" over the tree. I would have considered slightly angling the building to give it more three dimensional depth, though. Nicely done!

Hi Frank Thanks for the comment. Yes it is the Dragon kit. Also the house is on a slight angle...about the same as the road. It's just looks flat because of the way I took some of the photos. If you look at the pic of the house on its own you can see the side of it. Bart

The man who is urinating near the water source would be shot on sight. Armies have strict rules about where one defecate, and right next to everyone isn't one of them. Incidentally, joining the military doesn't relieve one of the need for privacy, either. Only alcohol does that. The paintwork on the house looks fantastic.

Indeed, don't worry. It's a great diorama and we are nitpicking. I'm a passioned gardener and I do have many Bonsai trees. It's not the height of the tree, that's absolutely ok, we still do have some of these old, big apple trees here.
