Development Project 3: Clash of Tanks


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.



Duration

The first project took 1 week. The second a few months durign winter time. This project took also some months during summer and exists of 2 parts. A German side and second Russian side which can be connected. The German side was more difficult due to the fortess style and precise placement of trees, bushes, models and figures. The Russian side is an assualt on the barricades and not that crucials in placement of the material, figures and models. 


Stepwise - German side 

Having said that the steps are shown consecutive picture style to provide a clear idea of the development in different stages. Some choices were after all not very smart or questionable. However the finish counts. As this is the third diorama I'm still earnign and using different techniques.



Duration

The  other half took a lot less time as less to decorate. Just a sloop with trees. Within weeks ready. Painting all tanks and soldiers took way more time.
