after doing most late war diorama's the last past years I decided to do an early one for a change!

I have build an 38t during "Barbarrosa'and have used the following photo as inspiration:

[/IMG]

What I liked about this photo where the poses of the figures,specialy the 2 figures in one hatch.

For the figures in the turret I have used 2 tank figures and converted them with magic-sculp.
[/IMG]
The arms where first made with copperwire.

The tracks are still to loose but they will be tighter once they are permanently fixed!

The crew is looking to a few russian civilians who can not do more then watch the invadors taken their country.

Grandmother is from Mig and the other 2 figures are from Stalingrad.

comments are welcome!

I wish you all a very good 2012!

Roger

Hello Roger,

I like the original picture as well as the idea of the Russian family watching the tank.

What comes into my mind, when comparing the foto with your rendition is the different look of the sitting figure in front of the turret.
When looking at the photograph, the upper body is straight up and your figure is leaning outwards giving the impression that he has problems not to fall aside.
So, I would beef up the middle section of the body by filling with a little sheet of plastic in order to obtain the same body shape as the original.
Just my two Cents.
Nevertheless, your rendition is extremely close to the original and extremely professionallly build up.
Go ahead and show us the next steps.
Gert
