    Valmy, incredible!! I think you might need to explain to some people what they are seeing here. Maybe some pictures from a different angle? :)

    Hi Zathros,

    I'll make several dioramas, photograph like a war reportage during World War II. They illustrate what these soldiers endured during the Battle of Anzio. I will use plastic figures and mine if I am not satisfied with those brands and also paper models.

    Each diorama is an answer to the question: What did you do in the war daddy?
    (nothing to do with the movie). One or more photos illustrate the answer.

    Here I photographed closer figures as to give the impression of being in the action. The picture is saturated to get as close as possible to the shots this time. It is deliberately vague: trying to shoot quietly and cleanly while you are being shot?

    Faithfully
    Valmy

    Before / after

    I bought this figure (on the right), a plastic figure long time ago and the rifle was broken a part was missing (in front of the right hand).

    The sheme paint was realy poor and I decided to repair,paint and upgrade it like that :

    I don't choose the M1 Garand and prefer the thompson soluce for my Sergeant (3rd division US infantry - see left arm),he will be my guardian angel and my bodyguard throughout the report. Is it a problem for someone ? sign1

    The chargers case is made of paper

    The boy wears a hbt jacket - 1941 with pockets. There is a camouflage netting on the helmet.

    With bullet casings and grass on the ground, it's more realistic.

    Looks Great Valmy, and anyone who has a problem needs to study their history better, those guys fought the Nazi's tooth and nail and won our freedoms. I like the subjects you chose, and with the Time cover too :thumb:
