Welcome to my page!

Hello,

here I present my work. I create dioramas in the time period of World War II and everything only in the scale 1/144.
My main focus are tanks but from time to time a take a look at submarines, interesting airplanes and small ships.

Opel Blitz Einheitsführerhaus und Holzvergaser in 1/144 02/52

Meanwhile I found time to paint my two new Opel Blitz.
End of November I presented the designs (here). Close to Christmas I got the shippment from Shapeways but with family around and new year I found no time to paint them. In the last days I finished painting and can show you know the first pictures.

NSU Springer (Sonderkraftfahrzeug 304) in 1/144 01/52

The NSU Springer (Jumper) was based on the design of the Kettenkrad. Much too expensive to be used as a one time draw away tank is was not very reliable on top.
Anyway, no very complicated forms made it easy to design. After one day I had most of the design done. So here the first pictures from the work in progress.

1/144 Mercedes leichtes Löschgruppenfahrzeug LLG

For my own collection I finished last night the painting for the Mercedes fire engine. I have the Wehrmacht version in yellow but I wanted it as an civilian one too. The Mercedes was called leichtes Löschgruppenfahrzeug LLG, today it would be a LF8; a Löschfahrzueg for 8 firemen. Besides Opel many LF 8 have been produced on the chassis of the Mercedes L1500.  For more details you can read here

the new Kettenkrad and his special trailers

Two years ago I bought several Me 262 from Trumpeter as together with the Jet fighter you found a Kettenkrad in the box. I assembled one, but I never painted it. So this autumn I got a complete box of Me 163 and there you find a VW Kübelwagen and a Kettenkrad, both need only assembly they come ready painted. So I assembled one and the Kübelwagen and was very astonished how easy it was. 
So I started designing some of the special trailers the Wehrmacht used for the Kettenkrad.
A Kettenkrad in 1/144 is already very small and fragile, but the trailers are even one step fragiler. Therefore I designed everything for the ultra frosted material, it allows me dimensions from 0.5mm. Last weekend I picked it up and here are the first pictures:
