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.

My new 1/144 Artilleryfährprahm with 3 tone camouflage 13/52

While I painted my first Artilleriefährpram in dark gey, I wanted to get it done asap, so for the sales Version I had to add some improvements to my prototype.
Just an example, I added a wooden floor to several areas and added some more stuff like ladders and rescue boats.
So with all these changes I ordered a new version for myself. After some weeks in my shelf, I started this week with painting it. So the same question raised again, which colour do you want?
The answer I found here: http://www.modellversium.de/kit/artikel.php?id=838

There you can find guidance to several painting schemas. I decided to go with the version the Kriegsmarine used in Norway.

So far, so good, here you can see my results after nearly one evening painting. Still a lot to do but I come closer. In the next days I will continue painting and will add the first equipment. Maybe I will find this time a crew, taff enough to hire on my small Artilleriefährprahm.

To get an Imagination about a real one, here you can find an old Picture of an Artilleriefährprahm. I believe it is a type D, but 100% sure I am not.

Still the best source for a lot of Information and good Pictures is this German site: Forum Marinearchiv click on the Header Grafiken and you will find tons of Information and scetches.

Soon I will present my next prototype, the marinefährprahm type D but as a standard transport type and a surprise.
