I love the juxtaposition of the statue with the victors and their victim. Awesome idea!

You have told an interesting 'story' in your diorama. Well done!

Hi Rob. What makes this little vignette for me is the composition. Love the shot-down Russian aircarft pieces and the statue behind .. really sets the scene. The figures and "Gepard" sit perfectly and again, composed well. Colourwise ... the jury is still out ... but altogether, its a lovely little vignette.

Actually, ....someone guessed it,......it is oil paint..........mostly. I used Rembrandt Paynes Grey in varying shades on the edges of the body panels. Thanks for the comments guys.

It's great to see some figures - there's an awful lot of machinery on this site without any. Figures are a different type of challenge.

I also do like the colouring, even if it is a touch on the "vibrant" side, perhaps the lips could do with toning down just a little!

I like it because it is a bit different, and I always admire it when someone actually makes something from raw material, like your scenery, rather than just building the kit.

tyhe composition of this diorama is fantastic. i can't help feel that the colours are a little too much on the blue side but that's probably just me.
