*Finished* Loading Scene with S.M. 82 Crete 1942
This project should show a typical Loading scene of a SM.82 Canguro, the Transportversion of the Marsupiale Bomber, which was widely used by the Luftwaffe in the Mediteranean and North African Theatre.
It is situated around May 1942 at Heraklion (Crete)
The kit is the Italeri one, which is not a simple Build (fit and some material issues). The figures are a mix up from Zvezda, Preiser and Revell.
The Opel Blitz is from Roden.
Nice job Daniel
Well done Daniel
Thank you guys.. I hope to get the completed Dio to Wilnsdorf Marcel.
You can show it still. It would be a pleasure to see it in Wilnsdorf Daniel.
That's an awesome dio. Where didnyou find the bus?
Great looking little dio, Daniel! The cockpit of the SM.82 looks great, and so does the Blitz!
very nice job.
Wow... Great result. Congratulations!
Thank you Guys for your kid words. I hope to finish the projekt within the next 4 weeks.
Ther are only a few things left to do but these little things left to do- often costs most of the total time 🙂
@Greg Baker.. The Bus is this kit: scalemates.com/kits/121150-roden-720-opel-3-6-47-omnibus
Very nice dio and subject Daniel. I love the history of the Crete operation.
Hey Alec, thank you and yes fascinating operation and history with all the logistical challenges etc.
This will be finished after the shidenkai. The 4 weeks from March this year were too optimistic 🙂
Looking forward to it 👍
me too 🙂
A very nice looking diorama! Charming!
Thank you all very much Gentlemen... Much appreciated... still some way to go but it will be finished with a new Base and some additions soon...
Added some Pics of the progress.. My Gosh 2 Years nearly ...Time is a bitch
The fourth photo looks stunning imo. There is all this detail in the canopy glass, and then the depth, and then the different scales to things with the large airplane and the smaller things around it. 🙂 And the dark shadow under the plane and the bus is a very nice touch.
great to have the extra pics
Woah, Thanks mates, much appreciated.. The new base is in progress👍
Wow, a really fine Dio.
Awesome, pic 5 looks like a real photo (the only hint is the colour 🙂 )
Very nice work 👍
Why the new base Daniel? It already looks fantastic.
Thank you for your motivating and kind words chaps 👍
@Greg new is the wrong word . It gets an nearly complete refurbishment becaus ut is 2 years old by now and i used it for transportation. To fix the plane and things on it i used toothpicks. Too many holes showed off 🙂 And it will become a wooden Frame and a bit more vegetation and some colour treatment.
@Lukasz black and white gives it a special touch thank you mate.
But the exhausts are missing 🙂
Nice work Daniel! I like it!
Then the pic is so good that beholders don't spot it😉
Wow! What wonderful wonderful work! How you present your work! GREAT imagination and skill. Thanks
Ah! Amazing work. I like it.
Thank you Henry very nice and motivating words 👍
@Timothy Thank you very much @Roberto really glas you like my italian Bird 👍
The Black Boys in summer outfit! The figures of Zvezda are not that bad.
But one of them took a shower in old oil as it looks. Macro is incorruptible 🙁
It looks simply fantastic
Thank you Spanjaard, much appreciated 👍
Nice Details in the Pit 👍
Top notch ! Love the scene ! What do you think about the Roden Blitz? Although I've seen a lot of positive reviews , some people who have actually built it are not so pleased. Thanks! Frohe Weihnachten!
Thank you mates! Much appreciated
@Alex Many thanks for your kind words. The Roden Blitz is very good in Detail and overall fit.
But especially the Bus versions goot some really evident fit issues between Cabin and Roof.
With mine there were also big differents in Materialthickness in this area.
You have to do a lot of dryfit and sanding there, which i did not enough.
So i decided to cover the worst part with the tarpaulin from the Black Box set.
It is a fine kit after all. I have 2 additional of them in my stash and next time i know the issues😉
Great work, bravo.
Thank you Roberto 👍
Wow, very nice Daniel! How could i missed this? The paratroopers look nice, are they from Preiser?
Very nice and detailed dio Daniel - a real eyecatcher 👍
Great job Daniel. Impressive
Keep this up and I'm going to have to start calling you Mr. Klink...
Hi folks, thank you for your very nice comments.. there are only a few things left to fix with this scene.
Just waiting for the material.
@Holger glas you finally found it and thanks mate👍 Yes these are the Preiser figures, they are still in progress by now.
@Stephan Thank you the kit of the SM 82 was not real fun but i am glad with the result.
@Erik Glad you like it 👍
@Greg you can also call me "Tiescher"😉 Thank you SIr👍
Looking great Daniel!
Thank you very much Mike👍
Wow! Simply wonderful!
Thank you Andy, much appreciated 👍

Thanks Neuling...really honoured you like it! 👍
That came out wonderfully. I never realized that plane was so big 🙂
Very nice job. I like it a lot.
Thank you very much Clifford and Nathan👍
Yes it is really a big plane. And easy prey for the experienced MTO squadrons once detected.🙂
Congrats Daniel I like it very much... also in "wrong colors" (I'm italian ahahah)
Thank you Dave and Christian...
This thing looks impressive in any color btw. 🙂
Great dio Daniel 🙂
Impressive work Daniel
I agree, really great work alround but I really like the SM.82 Canguro weathering 👍 Also the B.W. photos😉
Thank youGuy, Erik and Rui for your kind words feels good 👍
Just added a pic that i found ..
@Rui yes, i also llike the outcome. Those Aircraft were exposed most of the tim to heat, Dust and sunshine.. Glad you like the effect 👍
Awesome build Daniel.
Fantastic Job, Daniel, the Plane, the Dio, the Weathering and the Photos 👍 👍 👍
Thank you Clifford and Dietmar, very much appreciated👍
Nice work but it's cheating to build an Italian bird in Luftwaffe colours😉
Thank you Urban, the Bomber Version will be italian😉
The colors are italian btw🙂
Looking forward to that one mate!
Guess i will start it next year🙂
Klasse Arbeit! 👍
Danke schön Zsolt!!
Compared to your small masterpiecs these words are very appreciated 👍
