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.

Jungle fighting in 1/144


Today I want show you some pictures I made while I tried to put my US Marines and a Sherman into the right surroundings.

The basement is a food package which I filled with gypsum and then later I took to work out the diorama. For the flowers and the grass I used whatever I found during a walk to the woods. So see what the result is.

Winter fighting or a Hetzer on his way to Bastogne


As there are so many dioramas with summer topics, I wanted to try it with a winter theme.
I used the following vehicles:
  • German Hetzer from Dragon
  • GMC truck from 21 th Century
  • US Sherman M4 from Dragon
  • Soldiers from Pegasus
For the basement I used an old piece of wood which I brought into a rectangular size. Then I used a router to shape a 5 mm deep form into the wood. In this deeper form I pressed a kind of soft clay to create something like a way with an intersection.



After drying I made the first test in which way the vehicles would fit best.



Then I added some trees and of course the snow.
I hope you enjoy my small diorama even the snow maybe is not fine enough.








here I put for some time a Puma on the diorama

1/144 french tank somewhere in France


Here I present a small diorama I built some time ago.
The basement is a gypsum form and some trees - that's it. 
The tank is from the Panzer Depot and not modified at all.
The trees are all hand made.

Winter wonderland in 1/144


Here a model which I build many years ago, just when I started collecting tanks in the scale 1/144.
From a modeling magazine I got a good idea about a bleaching material what I could use for snow.



As a basis I took a 12 mm cork coaster which you find in each Swedish furniture store. On the top I modeled the landscape in a combination of gypsum and paper. Later I painted everything in dark brown and scattered it with this bleacher powder.
The only thing I forgot where the tank tracks in the snow. Therefore I tried a modification which I later removed.
