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.

Panther mit Raeumschaufel, Panther with Dozer

By end of the war, Hitler allowed to modify some tanks for a special job. They had to clean the streets. Okay, maybe cleaning is not the right word :-) they had to remove obstacles and tons of the ruins on the streets. I read that old unused Panzer III and Panzer IV should have been used, but in fact, I found pictures of a Panther.
So I designed the Dozer and added it to a F-Toys / Dragon Panther. As I could not find the original turret, I added the one from my latest F-Toys Panther.

Once I find the original turret again, I will change the opening for the gun.

Nebelwerfer in 1/144

After some trials, I have now my first group of Nebelwerfers ready to see action. I tried to do the ammunition 3D as well, but there the dimensions are so small, that it makes not that much sense.

In the next step I will change some details, maybe the wheels, as this is an ongoing problem for me, to draw really good wheels. In this process I will change the axis as well, at the moment it is to big.
So here are the first pictures of my Nebelwerfer group.
If somebody is interested, so please send me a mail or leave a comment.

Culemeyer a very spezial tank Transporter in 1/144

As the war went on, the German tanks gained more and more weight. One big problem besides this fact was that the Germans know only one direction: back home. As they lost more and more battles, they needed vehicles for the tank recovery. At the beginning they could do it with a Famo, but as the Tiger saw action, you already needed 3 Famo for one Tiger. Not very efficiency! Under bad circumstances you needed two Panthers, oh sorry two Bergepanthers, it was not allowed to use fighting tanks for recovery. With the Jagdtiger and the Kingtiger it got much worst. And yes these tanks needed a much more help, as they were not as reliable as the later Panther.
For the transport of the Moeser Karl the German Army used a special trailer, from a company called Culemeyer. First designed to bring trains to locations without rails, with an additional plate you could use them for tanks as well.
So here is my model of such a Culemeyer trailer. I designed the version with the 6 axis. 

Here you can find some more information about this trailer:

As I designed everything with 3D, I can offer you to order online at Shapeways your own model.

Neger German one man Submarine in 1-144 small diorama

Today I present a small diorama with my two German submarines. These type of submarine was called Neger, they were one of the German "Secret Weapons" with which the war should have won.
For technical clearance, the Neger was not really a submarine, as they could not dive. They simply swam close on the water surface. Besides this technical fact, they were very dangerous for the soldiers, a lot of them never returned.
One of the first mission happened at the Anzio beaches in Italy where they should destroy the American / British landing fleet.

The submarines are 3D printed and painted in black. Most pictures show this color for them.
The rest of the Diorama is really handmade.

T-34 with Mine cleaner

Today I introduce my latest version of the Russian T 34.
The Russian produced some T-34 with mine cleaners. There they had two different versions.
As I do not found a sketch I had to take the dimensions from the some pictures I found on the web.
So here is my T 34 with mine cleaner.
The mine cleaner is a 3D product.

tank trailer for German airfield

I finished today the work on my new tank trailer. I'm not 110 % satisfied as there are some details I will change for the next time. And yes my wheels should get better, I know, but ! I work on this to improve my drawing skills with my 3D program.
The trailer has no existing Original, but as the Germans used what ever they found, so it is fine for me.

the tank truck is from Panzer Depot

Here you see the structure from the printing.
