    A new work in the progress...
    The diorama, in 1/72, represents a glimpse of Berlin, now fallen, with in the middle of the road a Soviet tank T-34/85
    Some information on figures and materials that I'll use:
    -Tank T-34/85 in plastic from russian company Zvezda;
    -Miniatures from SCALE75 in scale 1/72 in plastic;
    -section of the house from Italeri;
    -Accessories (lamppost, poles, manhole covers, etc.) of Italeri's "URBAN accessories" set;
    -Base recreated with a sheet, 0.5 cm., of Polifoam (polystyrene) that I will go to work with a cutter to recreate the road surface.

    Those figure look very nice considering they are 1/72 scale. Looking forward to seeing more of this build.

    After some research, I managed to find these sets of the company Preiser, in scale 1/72, which will allow me to fill more the dio with the addition of civilians and other Russian soldiers..

    Continues the WIP... Terminated the T-34/85 and its crew member. Now I'm waiting for the missing pieces...

    Nice little doo shaping up Andrea. That T-34 and the crewman look sweet, especially in 1/72.
    I would add more rubble around the destroyed building (the Italeri "destroyed church", That brings back some memories...). It would also hide what looks like a seem between the building and the base.
    I love the finish you achieved on the street and pavement. The range of colour and shades on those cobbles and the pavement is beautiful.

    Looking forward to see the civilian refugees added. They'll really fill that diorama in and greatly add to the story.

    Thank you Henk! In fact the ruined house has yet to be finished and I have to add a lot of rubble. Thank you very much for the suggestions!

    Best regards!
