Welcome to my page!


here I present my work. I create dioramas in the time period of World War II and everything only in the scale 1/144.
My main focus are tanks but from time to time a take a look at submarines, interesting airplanes and small ships.

some progress with my German field fortification

Last week I found enough time to close the work on the landscape. So the Basics are done and now I will continue with the details and the stuff to be presented. To get a better image I put some potential guns on it. Of Course and that was the main idea from the beginning I added the 1/144 Heeresfeldbahn, that was a narrow gauge Train the Germans used on many theaters. In the next weeks I will publish more stuff for the German Heeresfeldbahn, like a complete Train, and some rail sets, everything in 1/144.

new 1/144 diorama, German open field fortification

I started this week again with a new Diorama. I will build something with an open field fortification. I have some ideas in my mind but yet not the final design. So I started with one of the old wooden Frames I took back from California. Basement is foarm which I cut an started forming some Details.

For the frame I use one of the old black boxes I bought some years ago, still have tons of them.
the foam can be formed with a screwdriver, some old blades and other sculpting tools

American and German landing crafts: Pionierlandungsboot versus LCM

Here some pictures from the American and the German version of a landing craft. While the German version is a bit older, the Americans started much later in the war with their design for landing crafts (what does not mean, that they started from scratch).

The Pionierlandungsboot 39 could be easily divided into two pieces and then transported by train, the Americans designed their LCM as a one hull solution.

Italien Field Fortification, Bunker in Calabria

While on Holidays the last two weeks, I found something very nice. A small Italian Bunker, not very strong, not very comfortable, but somehow interesting. We saw several of them parallel the coast line.
More 1/144 stuff will follow as soon as I have time to paint them.

German Einheitsdiesel as Radio truck with trailer

I combined my new radio truck with an old trailer which I had for several years. Now behind the radio truck it looks not that bad, therefore I decided to create a set.
