    Hi all, I always wanted to make my version of this diorama of the famous picture.
    I started my work making conversions of the soldiers from 2 old boxes of 1.32 Airfix multiposes: American and german, looking for body legs and harms that my fit soldiers positions of the picture.
    After all kinds of cuts and surgery I was finding the place of each one:
    all very tide in a small space and all theirs hands had to reach the pole (except for one hand of Mike and the Indian Ira). The two soldiers of the other side were created looking of what I can see it the picture, and the free space left in the group. All marines uniforms details were sculpt, to mach the photo, as the 10 hands, created directly on the pole.
    All painted in Acrylics. The 48 stars flag was painted over paper and molded wet, on position

    I’ll appreciate and welcome all yours comments.

    Excellent reconstruction of this famous event, you have captured every man and his pose, position and movement just like the actual image, hard to tell the difference between the two images as you have captured it so well. The flag is also made very realistic, nice proportions for the thickness of the cloth and realistic movement.

    excellent result
