My newest diorama, "Logistics" will be 4 feet X 8 feet in size, 1/35th scale.
It will have 50 vehicles and 340 figures.
Most of the buildings are well underway.
I have the figures built and posed.
All but 8 of the vehicles built and base coated and about half completely finished.

Here are some of the vehicle builds; Kits, Conversions & Scratch-Builds.

Thanks for moving it Alex.

I'll post more of the diorama as it moves along.

You are welcome.

This is pretty much an "one man outfit" and can be tedious at times.

Much patience must be used here on planetarmor to keep the wheels rolling.

Love the 'line-up' of awesome looking vehicles for your "Logistics" super diorama.

Looking forward to updates on your "EPIC" project.

Take care my brother.

Hey Tony,

Seems like most of the gang are here too!

Oh, I forgot a few. There will be 3 German vehicles destroyed and left behind in this dio. A Mercedes truck towing a searchlight, a 2cm flak and a Panzer IV H that I am currently working on. Here is the Mercedes truck.

And here is the 2 cm flak.

When affixed to the diorama, I will add rubble underneath and around it, plus ashes from the burned road wheels, blown off parts and so on.

I believe these destroyed vehicles in an urban area that has just been occupied, will create some added drama. I used the entire Griffon set for this vehicle. Very glad I did, that super detail set makes the wreckage more realistic!

More later.
