My Newest Diorama: "Logistics", 4 X 8 feet in size, 50 vehicles & 340 figures.
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.

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!
