Welcome to my page!

Hello,

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 for my african diorama

Here some more picutres. 
Meanwille I filled up the ground with plaster of Paris what I coloured it with used tea bags. 
They give a really good natural colour.



The last picture shows the diorama before I decided the paint all houses and the entrance in the same colour. The vehicels are all from PanzerDepot and yet I have not decided which one will be definitly be later on the diorama.

Welcome to Africa II

I made a little progress this weekend. I have built the door and I like it.
Some words about the design of the door. It's made out of three layers of the white foam.
The dorr itself will be built with these small pieces of wood you get at coffee shops.

Africa drawing for the door

As I have Google Sketch, I use this free 3D software to draw things before I build them in real.
So here the the drawings created to get an idea how the door should look like:




As material I use again this foam board. It's easy to handle and cheap so that in the worst case I can throw away any rubbish I produced.
Here a picture with the latest state of my african door

Welcome to Africa

I saw some days ago a nice movie from a French "Wochenschau". For all who are not familliar with the name "Wochenschau": in times as nealy nobody had a radio or a television, (yes there was a time without Internet and texting), people went to the theatres to watch news. In Germany these news updates were called "Wochenschau" and they were full with propaganda. In one of these I saw an airplane passing by an italian fort. So I want to have my own italian Fort.
Here is the plan: a big entrance nearly a ruin and two houses.
On the base plate it should look like this:




okay to build such a big complex I do not have the space and time so I will stay with the plan below:

new tanks arrived

This week I got a new shippment from my friend George from PanzerDepot.
So below you can see my latest tanks I got. I will use them within the next months for new ideas.

And here some more pictures together with dioramas from HongKong which I brought with me from Switzerland.




some new updates

As always I intend to start with new projects as soon as I got a good idea. Thanks to Trader Joe I was able to get some more of this small coffee cups. At Trader Joe they offer really good coffee - for free. That's why they use these small cups which I receiycle.
So for one of my dioramas I made even the basement and the walls of the ruin out of the white foam I bought for USD 1.
