Hi guys, I have added a couple of figures to the Stalingrad diorama...

The idea behind it is that the two Italians and the German sees the city of Stalingrad for the first time in the horizon... well something like that anyway. ;-)
... well and then the title for it, haven't really figured it out, but "A view of Stalins city" or something could be the name, maybe you guys have some suggestions ? :-)
Hope you like it,
all the best,
Kris

Fantastic work Kris.

Your dio really appeals to me, you've done great work.

Cheers, Willy.

Cool. Especially the figures. They look so relaxed and lifelike.
How about "The Calm before the Storm" "Stalingrad"

Guys, thanks a lot for the nice comments and title suggestions, they will be considered.

Roy about the figures, the German is from Royal Models Ferdinand crew and the Italians is from Model Victoria. These three is actually among the best sculpted and posed figures I've seen in this scale ever !

All the best,
Kris

Model Victoria eh. I have a set of their other Italian crewmembers. Amazingly you used the same shade of blue for the coveralls as I did. I have heard that the variation for these coveralls vary between very dark blue to the lighter shade such as yours and mine. I didn't know that MV had another set of Italian Tankers. Their other set that I have is also very well done so I am going to have to find these guys out there. Is the L6 also the Model Victoria kit. I want one really bad but am unwilling to pay that much for such a little tank. I am hoping it comes out in plastic. Again great job. I love seeing Italian armor in Italian markings.

Roy, the L6 is also fom MV, sure it's a lot of cash, but I think it is well worth the pricetag, because it is a very well designed kit and I really had a lot of fun building and painting it...

Very nice scene Kris. It looks very natural.
What was the brand of barbed wire or did you scratch it. It looks like the real thing!
