Constructing a diorama consist of phases while painting of the various models and figures can proceed in parallel. There is no single path to follow. Creativity, improvisation and ingenuity come along your journey of modelling with joy. Attend to an original image is just a direction, but don’t fear to diverge. Neither did I. I would rather say that the results became even better than was planned.
Sometimes a goal can't be achieved because of missing the resources or it just doesn’t work out the way you want it and for the sack of time... Everything is adjustable afterwards at later point in time. Although after placing the plastic soldiers for instance it would be harsh to accomplish.
While outliving the pandemic COVID-19 in April 2020 finished the diorama within a week of modelling and painting in a discplined matter. A due date, 9th of May, was set to complete as a purpose for the 75th celibration of Victory Day in Russia (День Победы ).
The goal is a fictive battelground with a water feature, some mountain ridge, trees, fortification and a bridge as central point. Mission achieved ( x )!
Commenced per December 2020 with a diaroma about a quarrel between German Mountain Troops (Gebirgsjäger) and passign Italian Mountain Troops (Alpini) against British Commandos supported by British Paratroops along a few skerries. Expected to finish off fast. However, the results are the opposite of the inital thoughts.
Modeling wasn't easy on the details and diversed away frequently from the plan. Anyway, the results are to the convieniences. Complete date: May 9th 2021.
