Hello, Friends.

I hope you like it.

Nice Gaz, i think you nailed it. The setting is nicely arranged and the burn traces on the T-34 do look very good. The figures are very nice and add a lot to the dio.
The only thing I'm not sure about, is the direction of the Marder. If he continues straight on, he hits the T-34. He can't turn in this position for using the t-34 as prootection either. But I guess you had completely different thoughts about the setup.

Cheers Rob

Thanks for you kind words and thoughts, Rob.  I appreciate it.

As for the arrangement...  I had to make compromises due to space.  I only have space for maybe eight 25cm X 25cm bases/dioramas.  Those dimensions don't include the frame that fits around the foam base. And none of these are protected from dust.  To put the Marder perpendicular to the T-34 would have required another 5 cm at least. 

So...   we will have to think of the T-34 as flank protection.

Is this from a movie?

 

Indeed a movie scene. "Skylark "

It’s June 1942. Anti-tank gun crews are being trained at a German military base using captured Soviet T-34 tanks manned by Soviet prisoners of war used as human targets. Not wanting to die in vain, one of the tank crews (and a French Resistance fighter who joins them) decides to try to break free in their T-34…Director Leonid Menaker said its plot was inspired by real events, which he had read about in a newspaper: “One of the crews managed to start their T-34. They escaped from a tornado of shelling, spent two hours circling on German territory until they reached a bridge, just as a group of schoolchildren was crossing it. In order to escape, the tank crew had to run the kids over. In the end, the tank did not move... German soldiers, who by then, had caught up with the tank riddled it with fire. The commander was captured and was hanged in the evening of the same day... This is where I got the idea for the movie.”

Stunning diorama! All the detail work you did to the diorama base fully paid off! Great result! I love it! 

Thank you, Kai!  I still have to rethink my method on the base...   it got a bit messy at the end.

Gaz, absolutely stunning diorama. The figures are brilliant and T-34 with the burnout wheels is very convincing, congrats on fantastic vignette……

Thank you, Phil!  I'd like to make the destroyed tanks a little more forlorn in the future.
