Gentlemen, thank you for your interest in my diorama and your appreciation! I liked the molding of these figures from the beginning. Tamiya had a good tradition of providing crews with their guns. This tradition was revived by Tamiya in a good way with the new M 40 kit which includes 8 service men.

Nice work on this antique kit. Makes me think of the days of verlinden or the pachi albums from Tamiya.

same here, jan peters!

Thank you Jan and Markus. Verlinden`s dioramas and items were trendsetting for me in the 80s. Looking back today his dios seem rather clean, tidy and sometimes a bit overstuffed. Nevertheless an important - and expensive - brand.

Laurent and Rui, thank you.

Amazing. What did you use for that base?
23 April 2020, 19:19
Thank you Steve. The base of the vignette is a cork plate ( which I stole in our kitchen) decorated with natural gravel and modelling grass.

And what did Frau Neulig have to say when she discovered that ?
24 April 2020, 14:38
I like the action pics 👍
24 April 2020, 14:39
Thanks Torsten! - Olivier, as we have quite a lot of cork plates of many different sizes and shapes in our kitchen, Frau Neuling at first did not notice the theft. Only when I continued stealing she some day got suspicious about the disappering cork and I - of course - confessed. Frau Neuling wasn`t really happy about it but refrained from ruining my dio. Moreover: she had good reason for shopping. - Meanwhile I use cork pinboards with wooden frames which come in many different sizes.

„Knockin' on sherman's door" says it all, my grandad alway used to say that they referred to the „dreisieben"
as the „Panzeranklopfgerät" ( knockin' on tanks device) due to its ineffectiveness against thicker armour during the later stages of the war.
Great looking figurepainting !

Even against some heavy French tanks in 1940.
25 April 2020, 19:02
Thanks Hanno! - Olivier and Hanno, I think the best features of this antitank gun were its high mobility and low profile.

Excellent diorama and subject matter. I really like your pictures, especially your blending of the background scenery. It's a great kit and I have two in my stash, which are on my workbench at the moment. The two will form part of a North African Campaign diorama.

...thats super cool to see someone who is able do sth nice with simply kit like this 🙂
28 April 2020, 23:31
Thanks Jakub! It´s true: this is a very old and simple kit. But the figures are very well sculpted. You can feel the action.
