Hi everyone

I'm a beginner, actually I started at August of 2015. These are my first 1/72 Dioramas. Buildings, trees, walls, etc. are scratch building, using plaster, wood, etc.

Hi Miguel,

nice ! Very nice, certainly for a beginner . The figures and vehicles , tanks are looking good ! The Berlin diorama is a great scene only i have a suggestion . The wooden fence looks a tad unreal to me. first of all it's better if you paint the fence in a wood color and when dry apply a dark wash over it . It gives you a more realistic effect to the scene .

Well done anyway !

Kurt

About Normandy Diorama:

¿What is the best shot of Panther? to Sherman or to cannon?

About Berlin Battle Diorama:

About balance of forces...Germans can shut down the first tank by means cannon, stopping the advance of second tank, and fence soldiers attack with grenades to the second tank....What do you think??

Great first efforts... agree with the other comments about the scenario in both... have you considered working in 1/48?

Looks good... hope my first effort is as good!

In fact I started a 1/35 project, because 1/72 is too small for my eyes
