They look fine to me
I like the German tank one best as I can relate to it sneeking up a gully to position itself over the brow of a hill to ambush/snipe.
I like the plaster over brickwork in the town scene's and the collapsed roof - very realistic IMHO

Thank you for your kind words
I shall post some more pics
The trees on the Panther dio were made with a woodland scenics product, can't remember the name though sorry.
It was like a sponge which pulled apart then I painted with air bush and Tamiya Acrylics and highlighted. Simple but effective.

The positioning of the wheels really sells that Panther. What the others have said, good stuff.

Really cool dioramas Tiger!! Love the work you've put in on the walls/plaster/wood in several of your pieces. Any chance of some close ups omf the various figures and vehicles as well?

Cheers
Gary

I love the Mobelwagen B)

I'm surprised Trumpeter or DML haven't released a new mold Mobelwagen with either the 20mm Flakvierling or the 3.7cm Flak 43

Nice work on the Dios Tiger :cheer:

Thank you guys for the comments. I will post some close ups pics soon. 90% of the models I have and will post are at least 5-10 years old and not at the level of standard I would like now but I think they are still cool. Since joining KM I have learnt a lot, not only techniques but the history of things as well. Very cool site. Figures are the hardest but getting there. Cheers

My only question is whether that soldier would have had that panzerfaust in 41-42 in the Pz II diorama, otherwise I really like them all. I especially like the BergePanther diorama. You have a knack with layout.

Thanks for the close ups bud! :) There's alot going on in that multi vehicle dio - really like the stocked up K'wagen and the ground work you've done as well. How was the (I'm guessing based on the wheels) Italieri Bergpanther - easy build mate?

I have more if you are interested in looking ?. You are correct, it is an Italieri Kit and it sucked to make ( OOTB mind ). Lots of flash, lots of seam lines etc. If I were to make this kit again I would get all the add on bits possible especially the winch gear and motor. But hay I build stuff OOTB so shouldn,t complain really. Cheers

This has got me wondering if the one I built was a remould as I didn't find it that bad apart from the tracks

Hi Bud. Quite possible as I was given that as a prezzy about 10 years ago and never came out of the box for at least 8. Yeah the tracks sucked as well. But it still turned out ok. Cheers
