Absolutely beautiful work and photography. I really love the work you do with the tires of each build.
16. September, 15:40
Thank you mates for your kind comments and feedback! - Christian, your proposal is well justified. Normally I try to avoid buying expensive aftermarket products when the oob wheels are fairly good, which mostly is the case. So what would you suggest to" flatten" the tires? Maybe sanding or cutting off the wheel underside? - Slavo, you got it with pinpoint accuracy: Die Aufbereitung des Metalltores hat mich beim Basteln dieses Dioramas am meisten "gepackt"!
17. September, 16:29
I think some people (a long time ago before we had resin kits for almost evrything) were heating very gently the plastic to try to get that effect (pushing them a bit against a hard surface once warm)
but maybe it was for smaller wheels like 1/72 airplanes or something like that
Of course, try with some old piece of kit that is worth nothing before doing it with the wheels of a good kit ;)
i have NOT tried myself.
17. September, 20:51
Another masterpiece Neuling. You have the ability and skill to put life in your dioramas. And the pics are pro as usual!

@Neuling ... Man, ich kann ja deutsch schreiben. Fällt mir schwer in Englisch. Sorry for the others, really!
Ich habe das bei meiner CH auf der Herdplatte gemacht. Alufolie auf die heiße Platte und die Reifen drauf gedrückt. Das müsste gut funktionieren. Sie werden wahrscheinlich nicht so bauchig wie in Realität, aber zumindest wird die Auflagefläche größer. Dann scheint nicht so fiel Licht durch. Bei der CH in 1/48 war ich zufrieden. Die sind auch recht klein. Ob es bei größeren Reifen auch so gut geht und akzeptabel ausschaut, weiß ich nicht. Bin Militärbaufasziniert aber sonst nicht so mein Gebiet.
Teure Zurüstteille würde ich auch nicht kaufen.
18. September, 18:06
Spanjaard, Micky and Christian: thank you! - I`m going to experiment with heat on some old wheels out of the scrapbox. Your proposals are good. Vielen Dank!
18. September, 20:17
@Christian W, Könntest Du CH übersetzen ?
18. September, 20:57

Ich meine damit speziell den Transporthubschrauber CH-53. Ich baute den in 1/48.

Thanks Neuling... are they generic model railroad tree foliage or do they do specific foliage for 1/35 scale as well. Would you have a link?
9. August, 18:24
Thank you Richmond and Chris! - James, at you can see the products of Heki. They only sell accessories for model railroads in scale 1/87, but some of them can be used in dioramas scale 1/35.

Neuling, what did you use to tint the windows? I'm using Alclad II Transparent Green Armored Glass. 2 of the 3 windows worked well, the third is not. The Alclad II keeps pooling and not adhering. I pre treat all 3 with Future. I am on my 5th attempt to get the last window tinted, but the window is no longer pristine and will show some wear when finished annoying. Tempted to replace the window altogether.
8. June, 11:58
Brian I used transparent self adhesive green foil on the window panes of the husky. It can be ordered at
9. June, 11:36
Brian Eberle
Great tip, thanks. I just stripped clean the windows again after the 7th failure. This time I got the ALCLAD to sit on the windows, and it looked OK. After 15 hours to cure, I applied a dullcoat to seal it in place - disaster once again. The ALCLAD ran like water colors destroying what I finally achieved. I just bought Vallejo Emerald Green and Transparent Green as a substitute. I am done with ALCLAD. I'll give the green sheets a try next time.

Neuling that's what I like to do, nothing more annoying than taking just one or two photos and when you look back at them they're out of focus, there's stray shadows you don't want, the picture is cropped badly or the composition sucks etc. etc. So much better to take too many photos and weed out all the bad ones until you are left with ten or twenty good ones !! :D :D :D

. . . . and nothing beats natural daylight for adding realism to a build either !! :)

More Vietnam from Neuling´s garden-jungle!

I most enthusiastically agree that the topic of sleeping/waking-up/morning hygiene is massively underrepresented in AFV scale modeling and hail the champion who emerges to correct this injustice, which truly has no place in the 2020´s! ;) ;)

Are those coke-cans in the crate next to the tracks? I really like the way you blend military equipment & set-ups with flashes of "everyday normal life" in your dios!

Great job on the actual vehicle too, must have been some fun to have so much exposed interior to play with...
11. March, 14:09
Thank you Scott, Matthew, John and Slavo! - Slavo, I guess soldiers badly need objects of normal civil life to cope with stress and weariness of battle and danger. So I gave them a crate of Coke ("Pepsi will do"). As my wife was so far able to fend off the Bux-Zünsler, my garden can still be used as a mock theater of war.
12. March, 15:10
Helmut Fraundorfer
Very nice diorama there Neuling. I especially like the subtle variations in the metal finish. Meaning that the barrels have a rather greasy look, when the tank itself appears in a matte overall finish. I love details like that, it adds so much realism to any secene. The cluttered gear looks nice too and let's agree the cans in the crate are Budweiser cans! ;) Great Job!
12. March, 15:24
Beer ? No, US soldiers would not dream of drinking while on the job. Moreover in the days of Nam...

OK but 'la relève' (as on the poster behind the tank) was a programme to encourage French men to go to work in Germany. For each one going a French POW would return home. It was not very successful. So then they invented STO (Service du Travail Obligatoire) which was compulsory. But quite a few of the younger ones escaped and joined the ranks of resistance.
8. December 2019, 23:24
Thanks mates! - Alex and Playtime 222, you got the sad little story behind the girl in my diorama. The baby carried in the bundle by the poor lady is the child of a German soldier whom she had "fraternized" with during occupation. After the Germans have retreated she stands alone now gratefully receiving food from an American soldier. - Olivier, thank you for the interesting information on the "relève programme". Bitter irony and double meaning: "Relève" also is relief and change from hostile German occupation to friendly American presence.

Friendly but in the long run they too had to go.

Slavo Hazucha
Diorama greatness once again! Top execution all around and Neuling I really think your shots & perspectives are getting better & better still - some of these pics definitely have a war-reporter photo feeling to them in perspective and dynamics... Of course one has to build the ingredients for that in the model, but the pics add yet another level

I also was not aware that the Wehrmacht was using artillery periscopes (?) for short-range AA? Was this common practice (when time/profile of approach of the aircraft allowed?)? Or are they providing fire support against ground targets & measure the distance? :)
30. September 2019, 08:56
Slavo, if you mean the guy standing on the tank, he is not using a periscope but a range finder.

@Olivier Thanks for the explanation I asked myself the same thing.
@Slavo Still the best comment reviews here on scalemates!

Thank you mates for thinking about and watching my stuff. Der Geschützführer/Panzerkommandant ermittelte mit dem Raumbildentfernungsmesser die Entfernung zu einem potentiellen Zielobjekt und gab dem Richtschützen bei passender Kampfentfernung den Feuerbefehl. Bei frontal anfliegendem Tieffflieger hieß es für den Richtschützen auch ohne Befehl "Feuer frei!" und für den Kommandanten "volle Deckung!".

In summary then...:

Geschützführer drauf = enjoy the summer day...
Geschützführer weg = Schei**e!!!

The beauty of scalemates - having fun & learning new stuff... ;)

I don't know how I missed this one earlier. Nice work all-around Neuling. From the finish on the vehicle, to the great figures and on top of that great pictures as well. Couldn't ask for more.

Thanks Nathan! Slavo, you are the best qualified author to rewrite the "Schießvorschrift der Artillerie" (HDv 266/1) for the Bundeswehr. The booklet will shrink from 192 pages to 20 and be understandable to every soldier.
