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.

Verlinden Bunker in 1/144 - or - Somewhere in Italy

No Verlinden is doing any bunkers in the scale 1/144. But somehow I liked this bunker even I do not think that the Germans anywhere had a similar bunker. 
In Italy they do not enough time and material to build up their defenses with the REGELBAUTEN (that's the name for all bunker types the Germans developed and used during the war), and they used a lot of the bunkers and defense types the Italians had. So let's say, there might something like the Verlinden type have been possible.
The foundation is a piece of MDF on which I clued the poster board I used for the rest. The bunker is designed from some pictures I had from other dioramas where people built this bunker. Some minor details I changed. First of all, my bunker has on the front side no door to a lower level, but I added a much more important detail. All German AA-positions had on the side openings where they had the ammunition. So I added them by sticking some brown painted pieces of paper which I tried to engrave a bit. Just writing this I saw that I forgot the second steps to the top level, so my soldiers have to make a bigger step. Things like this happen.
The AA-gun is from SouthWest and the Mercedes truck is from PanzerDepot.
All German soldiers are from Dragon and I had to paint them.
So here some pictures:
