coporado Thanks for your kind words Rui! Browsing through some pics of old factories I discovered carts used for carrying small stuff and loudspeakers installed. Found these would be nice detail for my dio. Some residues, plastic sheet and sheet metal helped to scratch built both.
coporado Thank you so much mates! next time lets have a chat, I always like to get in contact with you guys and talk about projects, life and whatever comes around. Cheers and hope to talk to you next time

Scott Dutton Such a novel idea, and brilliantly executed, most interesting diorama I've seen in a while
Arne Greve Nice work, coporado. Whats the story behind this scene?

coporado Thanks Arne! The 109 crashed close to my parents home and close to the nearby airfield at my hometown in 1942. This was the main inspiration for the dio. Second was to take the challenge of recreating that damages on the aircraft.
coporado Unfortunately there are no confirmed information concerning the pilot. But looking at the scene he presumably survived the crash (opened canopy and ambulance car nearby). Taking all those trees into account he was a lucky one to hit the gap between the bigger trees.

coporado That might have been the dot in the story behind the dio, Arne. Unfortunately not, pic comes from a huge collection of pictures and researched military history of Magdeburg (my hometown). Some very nice and engaged guys are always busy on that in this community --> f15919.nexusboard.de/forum.php
There are also general pictures and information available (mostly researched on historical pictures or papers) such as vehicle and aircraft markings or uniform references for example.
If you might be interested, registration is required to see pictures.
