Transporting the big cat (1:72 scale)

It took me almost six months to finish this project. It was finished in January 2013. It is 1:72 scale diorama showing US sodiers taking captive German Jagedtiger no. 331. The vehicle was captured near "Neustadt an der Weinstraße"  in spring of 1945, it was a real challange to reconstruct the event :)
Dragon wagon and Willis models are produced by Academy and Jagedtiger is produced by Trumpeter all in 72 scale. House is my scratch build, trying to make it look as on the picture. I also added some resin figures to make it a bit more alive. Look at my gallery...


 
 



 

 





Here is the original picture taken in 1945 so you can check how it really looked. On this picture Jagedtiger looks as in one colour and that is not true. On the second picture you can check the painting scheme.


After capturing and transporting by truck, vehicle was loaded to the train. Her is painting scheme clearly visible. It was classic late ambush scheme.

 
Today this vehicle is preserved in museum of Aberdeen USA. 

L.O.T.R. Battle troll veteran

This one is a bit special as it takes a lot of spare plates to make such unique armour. I resculpted his head and mouth. Also I used some chains to connect armour plates to make it look better. It should show some kind of veteran battle troll. His armour is made of armour plates of his fellows who died in battle. This is about it.. few photos.
