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.

New on my work bench

This week I received a new delivery from Shapeways. So I give you a short overview about my next projects on which I will work the next days.

Schwimmpanzer II ready for Operation Sealion

So far I am done with the tank. The pontons are ready and what you see is the second print. Further I added a piece to close the motor cooling plates like it was on the Original. In the next days I will start drawing the Schwimmpanzer versions of the Panzer 38 and a second version of the Schwimmpanzer II.

Some new stuff for an industrial diorama

For this diorama I`m planning now for months. From the first idea I have reduced everything to a much smaller version. The topic is still a secret but of course it has to do with tanks. On the first planning I thought about a really big diorama, at the moment I will go with a small one, which will fit into a shoe box.

German Radio trailer 3 axis 

This trailer is print no. 3, I believe. The first version was too small, version two was a bad print and now I have a version with movable wheels and I am still unhappy. With this German Radio truck in the scale 1/160 it looks not that bad. But for everything else I still do not like this version. Maybe I will paint them, but I will not print again a new version.

Sherman mine roller 

The Sherman is done, I just realized, that at the rear end, they had a steel plate to get pushed if necessary. As it was not that easy to glue something together, I printed it and will add it now.

Coles RAF crane

After the French theater the Germans caught a lot of British equipment. Among them was the Coles crane. I remember a picture, where the Luftwaffe used one. The Wehrmacht used them as well for maintenance work on Panzers.
The upper part of the crane is movable and in the next step I will design the arm movable as well. This time I forgot to add the fixing points to the design.

Bergepanzer V Panther

I have some Bergepanzers, and one on basis of the Panther. But so far I had one with a spade. So I designed the spade and I will make it movable so that I could lift it. Let`s see in the next weeks if I will get it done.

Luftwaffe bomb transport set

Are you able to see something? I have to say, this design was a total disaster. All parts are too weak and everything is too small. So nothing to save, next stop will be the trash can and I have to draw everything again. the idea was to design some small trailers to transport bombs on an airfield.

Schienenwolf and Panzer train trailer

At the end of the war in Russia the Germans run back in direction Germany. To stop the advance of the Russian army or to slow it down, they destroyed as much as possible. So they invented a very simple but effective design the break the wooden construction of the Russian railways. Besides this small wagon I designed a wooden cabin for a German train wagon with a small Flak. The Germans used them to give trains a bit of defense power against Allied Fighters.
