I’m Proposing campaign‘’ Camera ‘’ photographers/Film recorders were amongst the soldiers who fought and brought us the insights to what soldiers saw in their battles, during intense fire fights in the midst of battles or just general manoeuvres to the next checkpoint these caught the actions the heroics and the expressions of the those who fought in the wars. While studying these pics we can find great details of the battle(s) the unit(s) etc. bringing a new light on the battle or unit you may never have read before. The idea is to model the photo or section of the recording 100% replica or as close to it as possible. We find these pics and film reels as inspiration but now the challenge is to make the pic or film reel into a diorama/vignette etc as if it was taken out of the photo and scaled into a model

I think this is perfect excuse for me to try to build a diorama, so count me in.

What are the parameters? Armor-only? May we do a ground support aircraft? And how about scale? Lastly, time and duration?

Regardless--I'm in, I just need to figure out which kit. Thanks, and looking forward to it!

Christian im thinking armor only but im open to ideas. Your suggestion of ground support aircraft? Have you got a pic for this?
Scale thinking 1:72 to 1:6
Duration 12months? Obviously alot of work to try recreate a photo close to 100%

Helpful Hint:
If you can, find the kit BEFORE the photograph, otherwise you might go nuts like me....

welcome John

contestant number 6

clayton have you found the kit before the photograph or the other way round?

just need another 4 contestants now

may stick to the 12 months as it will probabily be a long ardeous work to replicate the photo

No, Anthony, of course I found the photo first, and am searching for the kit, only avail. in discontinued resin...
Found one in 1/48, but I hate that scale

Well, plenty of time to keep seeking...
