1/144 Diorama "Götterdämmerung", Austria 1945 by Lucas

Lucas is back with another epic diorama build, not one, but two aircraft and interesting diorama!

The diorama is set in 1945 Austria (Innsbruck/Salzberg area), the luftwaffe have retreated into the mountains and are flying what aircraft they can from often temporary grass airstrips. As the Allied troops advance the airstrips are abandend and the aircraft sabotaged, the allied troops are then abale to sieze them..., and before they are shipped to the the USA/UK the Kodak camera comes to cpature the moment!

I think it is work looking at the full build history, there are some interesting techniques on how to detail and dress up your diorama. Even down to the figures being atonomically rearranged!

Also, no corners are cut with the aircraft. Again full details are given on how they were produced.
It is hard to fault such an allround and thought out presentation, a lot of work went into the research and short of putting a mountian in the background i think it has come good!

Full build history can be seen on I is a little slow at times, but worth the wait...
