Thanks for the campaign. Learned quite a few things, got some ideas.

One question to "trackpad": Where did you get the sanitary installations? Self-made?


If you enjoyed this one why not sign up for the next

Thanks and well done everybody. We had 14 finishers or approx 1/3 of those who enlisted which is quite good I think. I'm going to submit the Urban Campaign idea soon so watch out for it and sign up.

Shaun get them pics into the gallery asap as I'm not sure how long it will stay open.

I have awarded ribbons to everyone else who completed the campaign. If anyone thinks they should have got a ribbon but didn't please PM me.

I have open a thread titled Next Urban Diorama Campaign to discuss a possible future campaign.

Hi
This has been 1 of the hardest campaigns I've done to finish on time. I've just got the pic's to take & add to the Gallery. I've added a load more pic's to my photobucket album.

Didnt get all the little pieces added that I wanted but it's good enough.
Pat I've had a great time with this build & seeing the Great builds from everyone else it's been a Great Campaign. Well Done.

Very nice MBR, Pat and Max!

Hi all,

Here's my completed work. I will later on place my M32B1 on this diorama, but I have not finished that kit yet. When I place the M32B1 I will also add some small items to the dio, along with some figures. The StuG with crew is now just there for the looks of it.







I have learned a lot during this campaign and I will probably join up again for the next one. I think all of you did a great job with these challenging kits and some of the builders here are just amazing with the skills they displayed in this campaign!!! And Pat: Thanks for organising this excellent campaign!

Greetings,

Max

Pat and MBR both of your dioramas look great. Pat all that work on the church building turned out really good. MBR never would have thought of using modern vehicles with the Miniart kits. But thinking about it all the Reforgers and training exercises in Europe we were in a lot of old small towns. That brings a lot more posibilities for future projects. Look foward to next year's version of the campaign.

Thanks Bruce, There were a lot of little things that I don't think I did as well as I could have. As I said I'll probably revisit this maybe add more figures around the rest of the ruins but not for a while. Time now to start planning the next campaign.

wow Pat, that is one nice diorama. great work, really like the weathering on the vehicle and the vines on the church are an excellent touch. i see how you need the field signs, always thought signage provides an interesting element of "visual clutter" to any scene.

the figures look very good from here, love the work on the pants. the thing i find with figures is i always feel they could be better but that drives me onto the next project so i can attempt to achieve the best results i can.

great job all around to everyone. cheers, bd

Bruce thanks for the reminder I have PMd all who don't have 3 pics in the Gallery.

Okay I'm calling this done for the purposes of this campaign although I'll probably revisit it in the future. I'm not happy with several things including the figures and the overall colourscheme but it has been a huge learning experience and I'll carry forward what I have learned to the next Dio Campaign.

Some finished photos:

Someone tried to sell me the shed. He did forget to mention the former owners still living in:



The guy who tried to sell me the shed promised bunnies:



And when he said "a place to work" I expected fitness, not mechanics:

hi everyone,

just was reviewing all the great photos in the campaign folder and i noticed there are a few that only had 1 or 2 pics uploaded.

i believe the requirement for the ribbon was 3 photos uploaded (Pat, is this correct?).

so, if this is correct, could Roman, eMan, HeyLoad and anyone else ensure they have 3 pics of the finished diorama in the campaign folder super soon. just trying to help make sure everyone is rewarded for their hard work.

cheers, bd.

Pat: Was it mandatory to make it a complete diorama with at least a vehicle and/or figures or does finishing the diorama base itself also suffice?



Looking over the brief for the campaign it says
1) This is a diorama campaign so any dio or vignette using one or more Miniart dio base or building is acceptable.
2) The Miniart building can be built out of the box, combined with other kits or converted using wood, plaster, cork etc.
3) Vehicles are not compulsory but are encouraged.
4) Any time period the Buildings are suitable for will be accepted
5) Multiple submissions are acceptable but only one ribbon will be awarded.
6) Three photos of the completed item are required for award of the ribbon.
7) Work must be started and completed within the designated timeframe.


So without going into what the definition of a dio or a vignette is I would say that finishing the base itself is sufficient.

Pat: Thanks, and I very much look forward to joining the next campaign from the beginning

I believe you were thinking about the next campaign being similar to this one, but allowing other manufacturer's building kits regardless of the medium. I like the ideas for incorporating scratchbuilding into the next campaign, but I would consider only requiring a minimum of scratchbuilding to allow for those less experienced such as myself. Just my $0.02
