Small update on this one but an update nonetheless, resin figure assembled and his location amongst the ruins more or less decided upon. The crate that came with the other figure was used on top of the panther shell crate.


His pose is more or less what im after and when he is painted up and his uniform suitably dusted should be spot on for the depiction of a dejected German soldier in the ruins of Berlin.

Also more work on the internal destruction of the ruined house in the form of more balsa wood as rafters floorboards etc and also the damaged paintwork on the walls

When i get the Miniart furniture set this weekend , some parts from that set will also be added for extra detailing to the ruins of the building.

Thanks lads, some more progress on this one as well over the last while, added in some furniture from the Miniart furniture set, a damaged chest of drawers and a couple of chairs just to add some extra interest and some more detail on the internal side of the diorama

Empty shell casings have now also been added, 22 in all from Tamiya and RB Models,all popped out of a pack and all scattered and fixed in place at random, im thinking there is enough, but i will possibly add in a few more before im finished

I also added in a Tamiya few jerry cans, an abandoned bucket and also fixed a damaged lampost from Miniart in place at the corner of the street

Cheers George, thats where the majority (all) of the balsa wood now that i got from ya in the shop has ended up :D , will def be adding some fire/smoke damage to the wood before this is all complete,ive a few more ideas for this one before it will be finished in terms of torn and damaged posters on the wall, white surrender flag hanging from the window of the house and possibly some graffitti on the walls :idea: , more weathering and pigment work now is what i have planed next for a more overall dusty appearance of the street scene to make it as realistic and convincing as possible which is my main aim......more, soon.......

Outstanding Brian! You're surpassing yourself on this one :DX And I love how you've included a bucket too... no war diorama is complete without one! :D

Fantastic to watch this masterpiece come together.
