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.

Cromwell ARV tank in 1-144

I just finished my work on the British recovery tank. As you can see on the pictures, the rebuild is not that challenging, all you have to do is

- remove the turret
- close the hole with a plate and two small openings 
- add the crane on the side
- add some boxes and additional stuff for the crew
- add the wire for the towing job

I hope soon I present you the tank together with some other stuff on a small diorama.

on my bench at the moment

As I do not have that much time at the moment I can show you only some stuff what is waiting for me.

- I started a diorama with a bunker with an Panzer II turret on it

- a diorama with some British tanks in recovery

- a Famo with an Bilstein crane on his back

- a mini diorama with a narrow gauge train

Bunkers in San Francisco part II

Besides nice sunburn and some tired feet I'm back from a 7 hour walking / driving tour. As several times before the weather was very foggy and changed very fast. So from sunshine to total fog, everything was on my list.
Here the first impression:

Tommorrow I will be the complete day on the road and will visit some other Bunker locations close to the Bay Area (means San Francisco and the area arround).

Back from vacation


So the summer time is over for me - as far as vacation is meant. The vacation with the kids from Switzerland was amazing. But not only that I had a nice time with them, they brought me some foam plates and other stuff which is hard to get here.
Anyway, I promised to publish some better pictures from my last photo shooting. You remember this grey unclear picture I posted. 
So what was it? Yes it is an American Bunker from World War II.
The Bunker is located close to San Francisco and was if I’m right a kind of command post for the big guns at the entrance of the San Francisco port.
So here are some more pictures. I know the quality is not that good, but that day it was fucky and raining. I hope you like them anyway.

Here is the link to the folder with all pictures:
