Zulu Film Quote: (Jack Hawkins) Death waits you. You have made a covenant with death, and with Hell you are in agreement. You're all going to die. Don't you realize? Can't you see? You're all going to die. Die. Death awaits you all.

Another diorama "Rorke's Drift 1879"

I have been building a diorama for “Rorke's Drift” on a scale of 1/72 for about 2 years now. There will be about 900 figures on the diorama, of which about 280 are losses. There are only Germania figures made of resin!

The diorama will be completed in the next few months. About 100 figures, ammunition boxes, a lot of accessories as well as the burning hospital, smoke at the hospital and muzzle flashes are still missing. Plus thousands of empty ammunition cases.

The diorama is exhibited in our own diorama museum with many other historical dioramas in Germany.

Wolfgang a simple WOW seems hardly adequate. I spend a lot of time building model railways for my grandsons and have never managed to get the level of realism you have achieved.

Thank you, Herbie and 90th. Yes Gary, this is the diorama from Ian's FB group. I'm currently working on the opened ammo boxes, they don't exist on this scale yet. Best regards, Wolfgang

That is fantastic.
You've even picked out , I presume using washes and highlights, the creases in the uniforms as well as black lining the cross belts and equipment.
Even the shields appear to have a hair like texture. Such a lot of work.
Just superb. Well done.
