German Mortar Team Diorama

This is another terrific military diorama made by Glen! You can see alll of his diorama projects right here: Military Dioramas made by Glen

Here is what he has to say about it:

I thought i would send you some pictures of a small diorama I made that fits onto an A5 size paper, using a picture frame as the base. It s of a Tamiya German mortar team, again I made the windows and doors, built the walls to create a factory type ruin.

I used various bits of spares left over from other kits to leave lying around in the factory wheels tracks etc. I even used a bucket painted in red for a fire bucket which had been knocked over spilling the sand.

 

 

Glen Tells us more about how he made this diorama:

I made the windows using timber I purchased from my local model shop, they have timber that ship/boat builders use to construct their models. The glass came from packaging that my computer inks came in, this is ideal for glass also why buy clear plastic when this will do. To get some idea for the scale of the doors and windows, I find it best to use one of the figures as a guide to get a proportionate height etc. to make the brick dust I used Mig weathering powders with a drop of turps added and brushed it on. If you look you can see that there is some rope hanging from a hook on the wall, again this is ship modelling rigging rope. I like to try if possible capture as much detail in my dioramas without overdoing it. a simple bucket painted red becomes a fire bucket. With most kits you always get something left over, this becomes ideal for dioramas, When I go to various model shows I am always on the lookout for 2nd hand kits, One of the things I have used is various helmets, leave them lying around within the rubble, you could also use items of equipment too.
