Thanks for sharing.

Groundwork and the Jeep look very good to me! Especially the bridge and road sign! I only doubt if I would wear a red cape when hunting for enemies.....doesn't look like camouflage to me lol

But maybe Russian did that, I don't know!

Good work,
Martin

Hi Martin,
Thanks for your interest. These are Stalin's Cossacks. They wore this red topped capes everywhere. The Russians didn't do that but seems that the Cossacks did it

Wow. I like what I see. The guy holding the pistol looks so real. The bridge is well done. I like how you weathered dirt on the bottom of the front tires that are on dirt ground.

Your light on the back of the jeep needs painting. And there seems to be "redeye" on the eyes of the figures, strange as redeye is a result of human eyes and reflection of the flash...

Comrade,
an interesting subject and in my opinion well executed. I particularly like the Gaz and also the manner in which the Cossacks are arranged deploying from it.
A toast in your honour,
October

Thank you all for your comments.. This diorama was a fun for me. Thanks for the idea of "Seeing Red", which was very constructive for me.

What a beautiful dio? I especially love the scratchbuilt bridge and the groundwork.

The vehicle is well done too although a little too clean for me. Maybe you can put a little more dust and chipped paint?

Wampum, I have a suggestion. Why not put an unarmed but uniformed German soldier hiding under the bridge or behind the bushes? It will appear that the Russians are hunting these soldiers.

Very nice work.
