¡Hola Joaquin!

This is a wonderful model. To see the photos, one cannot tell that it is 1/48 scale. The weathering and dirt are just right. I like it very much. I just wonder where you're supposed to sit!

The Dio

Hi my Friends,
I like to show you my next dio, this history for me, start so many time ago, when I buy the book "Great Photographers Of World War II", Ed. Crescent, in the 101 page, there is a picture by Lee Miller "The Hofbrauhaus, Munich, 1945".


This is a build with a lot of history, it was builded in the s.XVI , you can find more in the Wikipedia, it was a very important role before the WWII,
I was really impressed with the picture, this is a vignette, is an inusual composition, too large and out of proportion, but this is its power, in this time the 1/35 scale was too large to do a scene, (for usual people with usual houses), now with the 1/48 scale, I can to do it.
I spoke with my friend Carles Elias, and he do the basic front:

Now I'm working on it a lot, and I start the first tests with the figures and vehicle.






In this case, I must forget all about proportions, compositions, blank spaces, etc. About the composition this is the "not-vignette", it cannot learn anything, only the inspiation from a picture.
Now I'm placing the figures to it's final place, and I must to do any transformation.
I hope you like it.
Best Regards All.

All rules were meant to be broken. And I agree 100% with the way you are going about this "anti-vignette". The picture is great and your replica will certainly do it justice. Perhaps somewhere on the base a smaller version of the original photo could be displayed?

I don't think you will have to worry about blank spaces to be honest. I suppose there might not be various objects and debris to fill what would be traditionally considered a blank space. But having seen how well you paint and weathered the Jeep, if you apply that detailed philosophy to the building and road they will look just as spectacular.
