This diorama represent an hypothetic scene during the final weeks of the war on the Eastern Front now developing in the Battle for the Home Land..a command post of a Kampfgruppe, a hastily assembled piecemeal of almost disbanded units try to hold the advance of Red Army forces. Hetzer is the same kit of "Counterattack" diorama, developed from the one of ESCI/ITALERI, retrofitted to "Early" variant of Jagdpanzer 38(t).
This is a cross-kit between the old Hasegawa (hull) and the newest Dragon Panther (turret; tracks) Tank is in a full winter camouflage in the final months of war in Europe; I was suggested from various pictures in Concord volume on Panther.
This was my first diorama; it represents a counterattack of Jagdpanzer 38(t) belonging to 22th SS division "Florian Geyer" in a Romanian town supported by Panzer-grenadiers. Today it looks to me a little primitive and raw..but I love it
This is a diorama built for a friend some years ago. It's inspired to a famous picture taken during the decisive american breakthrough towards Rome in May-June 1944. The model of a late Panther D (or a first batch of production model A) it's the old but for some ways better ESCI/ITALERI kit with "zimmerit" made from electrically-warmed X-Acto blade. Jeep it's the superb Heller/Airfix kit and soldiers and animals are from Preiser and Calibre 72
These are pictures from my latest work. A diorama inspired to the tank battles near lake Balaton. The StuH 42 is an old ESCI upgraded with Photo etched parts and Dragon components (wheels, drive sprocket and idler wheel); the Stug is from Revell with Part photo etched components. Tatra staff car is from Attack and the Marder III M is scratch built from a Pz. 38(t) from ATTACK. The soldiers are from Preiser, Warrior and Dragon.
