Since some months I reworked and enlarged my central Diorama I showed on this site some time ago. It depicts the German Trenchlines on the Westernfront in late 1918, when US and some French Forces try to break through the German lines, but are repelled by the massive counterattack wich beside the A7V and Beute-Mark includes the K-Wagen and LkII (both scratchbuilt). The diorama is made of wood, card and lots of plaster, painted with Acrylics. The Germans are from Hät, Emhar, Revell, Airfix, Myself, while the US are Hät and the French from Airfix. The Ft17 are RPM and Hät, the Mark tanks are Airfix and the A7V is Emhar. The Artillery is Hät and Emhar.
I hope you like it and look forward to your comments.
It looks very impressive and I've only one pedantic little suggstion to make (and thats with the description and not the model) -
If you described it as being set in an alternative Spring 1919 and showing a German response to the Allied Plan 1919 offensive then the K wagen and the LK would both make more sense
Thanks. Regarding your suggestion. Yes I thought that also. But instead of a fictive 1919 scenario I chose an alternative 1918 scenario in wich both the K-Wagen and the LkII were used, since both were near finished in late 1918. But I agree with you that 1919 would fit better.
BTW: Does anyone know how to remove those Attachments below? I tried to delete them, since I used directly shown images, but they seem to appear again, each time I delete them.
it looks amazing and takes me back to a trench system I built when I was 13,I am 48, I still have the model in the attic .What were the materials you used , barbed wire, dugouts, etc, it has been a very long time since I did any modelling . where did you get the figures?.
this is a great and very detailed scene, i bet you had fun doing it. the only problem i have with it is.. you have spent so much time and effort on the overall detail , then the figures still show their stand plates , probaly would have looked better without them. Otherwise a great model well done
