    This is only a test. The diorama is in building process.
    About the WWI, is very interesting subject for modeling, despite the most modelers prefer the WWII. For me is quite interesting.

    WWII is a war that scares me, as the death was so high, and the lines so fuzzy. I guess that is why WWII started, the whole conflict, is still unresolved, in reality.

    Same here, as well as pre-WW1. as far as vehicles, aircraft and the like...
    Like your Zis-5 by the way, Just one of the models I am "Going to build". During the evening, I made some sketches of a Zis-8 Transport Bus on a Zis-5 Frame, another "Going to Build" but in this case..scratch built!

    Fantastic, superb, informative. I like that you are showing more construction technique. I would love to see a complete build thread. It would be so informative. :)

    Yeah, I second that what zathros said, a build thread on your techniques for the rust and all the little details would be so interesting for everybody here.

    I'm gonna try to do a linear post of this diorama. But, this could be a little difficult, because I do not made pictures from the start.
