This diorama is the second part of the story , started with "DROPSHORTS",
the previous dio with the same background. I built both of
them concurrently so as they would get the same colours, rubble
etc., I really wanted them to appear to be in the same place, at
the same time.
The tank is the old Tamiya Mk.IV H reworked with scratch-built
details to depict a "mid production J. I also added a damaged
interior as well as real wire mesh screens.
The building is a TOWN HALL from the Trophy series and has been
modified considerably, with a scribed interior, scratch-built floors,
stairs, roof, windows and door. I cut off half of one side and used
it for rubble, while the wall that was left I cracked and deformed
so as to give the impression that it is about to fall.
The wagon and horse are from Italeri while the figures are all
Verlinden with various modifications. This diorama is still a favourite
of mine even though it is now eight years old.
