    Texas Ranger and the Alamo

    This diorama depicts US troops after convoy duty on Hwy 1, Vietnam 1968-69. The convoy duty has returned to base for refit, reload and some R&R. You may notice a few of the troops heckling the Sarge, not a good idea, he's not happy. Figures are various 1/35th, oils over acrylics with minor alterations. The trucks are AFV kits with some modifications, after market kits, and a lot of extras.

    My entry: "D-Day Dawn": after a long night, 4 paras of the 101st Airborne and their German POW glance up at a sudden announcement of the arrival of morning on June 6, 1944. The 1/35 flak gun is the venerable Tamiya one, the POW a coversion of from an equally old Tamiya set. The paras are from 2 different makers, MJK Minatures and Alpine, with swapped heads from my spares. The farmyard wall is a bit of an old Verlinden casting I had lying around.

    Hi everyone.
    My contribution was built over the months of the Battle of Britain to mark the 80th anniversary. The diorama all came from a single box; Airfix's "Ready for Battle" set, apart from the fuelling hoses that were bent from wire and the base that was cut from a sheet of MDF.


    Wording from the Airfix kit sets the scene nicely:
    "At the height of the summer of 1940, the fate of the free world rested upon the skill and courage of just a few young pilots as the RAF stood alone against the might of the as yet undefeated German Luftwaffe. In the air above southern England, Supermarine Spitfires and hawker Hurricanes fought vicious dogfights with the fighters and bombers of the enemy. As they wheeled and fought across the sky it was down to a larger group of men and women based on the ground to keep these vital aircraft serviceable and armed during these crucial summer months. Refuelling was the duty of the then common Albion AM463 refuelling truck, which with its three separate hoses was capable of refuelling three fighters simultaneously thus speeding up the vital turn around between fighter sorties. The aircraft were rearmed and maintained by armies of fitters and gun crews, feeding thousands of 303 rounds into the gun bays of the waiting fighters.
    Finally, trucks such as the Bedford MWD were used to transport men and equipment across airfields and around the country in this fraught and dangerous time. While the majority of the recognition goes to the fighter pilots of the RAF, who risked everything to defeat the Luftwaffe, the contribution made by the ground crews and other ground personnel must not be forgotten, many were killed and injured in Luftwaffe attacks on airfields and they worked tirelessly to ensure the RAF emerged victorious".
















    Many thanks for looking :)

    "Mongols", 54 mm

    The action of the diorama dates back to the early 14th century. The vanguard of the Mongol army came to the bank of a small fast river and at the ford on the other bank noticed the presence of an enemy patrol.
    Two figures (mounted Mongol and archer) from Altores Studio (sculptor Sergey Valger, resin, 54 mm.) and three figures (running Mongol, Mongol warrior with a spear and Mongol warrior with a horsetail) from Chronos Miniatures (sculptor Oleg Poghosyan, metal, 54 mm.) were used in this work.
    Painting - acrylic.

    'Rorke's Drift'

    The figures are by RDG Miniatures, sculpted by Maurice Corry in 1/32 scale. I modified some of the heads.

    I used a mix of Vallejo and Scale75 acrylics.

    The composition is based on the painting by Alphonse de Neuville.

    The figure at the back pointing is Lt Gonville Bromhead.

    Padre George Smith with the red beard is handing cartridges to a soldier of the 24th Foot.

    Surgeon James Reynolds is tending to a Natal Native Contingent soldier.

    Corporal William Allen is in the right foreground. 139731845_10157609045776666_8477330456473246210_o.jpg 139770689_10157609212526666_1064329851297579110_o.jpg
