    I don’t think these are true dioramas you need figures to truly tell a story. However Peter Crow and David Okamura have taught me that models are best displayed as a “scene†and I do believe that properly done the scene sets off the model and enhances the detail.

    The MG42 was one of my entries to the IPMS OrangeCon that was held on October 17th and I did not think that it would be a prize winner but the judges thought that it deserved First place in the paper model category


    The street and wall are scanned and sized and kit bashed from dioramas that were published in GPM’s Kartonowka Magazine.


    This is a shot of my finished Halinski Panther, (I’ll up load some close-ups soon) as you can see the base is a simple curb with a cobble stone street I think it adds a great deal to the model but then I am some what biased

    Great Work,Jim!!

    Thanks for putting these pix up! The vignette with the MG42 is actually quite effective and evocative: the Hitlerjugend poster is a nice touch.

    You have illustrated an important principle of dioramics: LESS is MORE!

    Looking forward to seeing more pix of that Panther: Impressive!!
