Ukraine 2023

Posted by praga on 29 May 2023, 17:50

So - the second diorama is finished. Here is also the back of the Hotel Oriental from the Dio "Greetings from Libreville". :-D :xd:
The T80 is from Revell. The smashed C-class is from Hongwell. I machined them in the vise and remade the windshield, hood and some small parts. The BMW is only slightly aged by Schuco and provided with decals. The figures are from different manufacturers, e.g. Alex Miniatures, Under Fire, FCModel Trend and from a 3D print manufacturer who sells on ebay.

Greetings, Jens Hilgraf

What can I say..... it's simply another masterpiece !
The idea is extremely original, the details are superb as the interaction between the figures.
I like also the civil ambient of the diorama, not showing the "usual" fighting conditions.
Best compliments Praga, you are a real master :yeah:

It's difficult to say more with less words, as Enrico has done. I was speechless too when I saw this fantastic diorama, praga. Everything is impressive in it: the great amount of details, the fantastic painting, the very realistic scenery,... :drool: :drool: :drool:

Superb work...once more, praga. :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

Brilliant diorama. The smashed/squashed car has been done so well.

The squashed car makes an interesting and effective metaphor for the entire situation. Brilliantly done!

This Dio fit more to the
STAR wars thread, I think.

The Empire strikes back.
