Street Battle
Posted by Tiking on Thursday, October 14, 2021 11:25 AM

This diorama came about of necessity. A diorama had been destroyed by child sometime ago. I decided to reuse items from that diorama together with another diorama to to make up for the destroyed one. Most of the figures have been taken from other smaller dioramas together with newer ones to form this recent version. I have been contemplating a vehicle, such as a pickup, but not too sure. I think the diorama looks good and makes a statement as is. We shall see late on down the line if I change my mind.

Oh that's soooo cool! Perfectly captures the chaos and confusion of combat. And as always your figures are top-notch!

Nice job.  I do recall another street fight scene you had done - maybe some of those figures made it into here.  A vehicle would be interesting - maybe something like Meng's technical.  Great work as usual.

Thanks,

John

Outstanding! 

Two questions.

1) what scale is this

2) The concrete barriers.  Did you make, modify, or purchase them?

 

Thank you for sharing.

   Just my opinion here but a vehicke would clutter the visual impact of this diorama, the story it tells me is pure chaos, rushing to defend, no time to bring more mobule or heavy equipment forward. Really cool Tiking.

we're modelers it's what we do

Thanks Mac. The scale is 1/35. The concrete barriers are from an old Mig set, if I'm not mistaken. I modified them a bit.

I have only been on here a little while and I have seen some very talented and artistic  people do some very extraordinary things. Perhaps someday I will be that good.

Wow. Nicely done! Especially the random trash on the ground. Brings it to life. And for a static diorama it's very dynamic.
