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.

German Army Museum in Dresden

Last weekend I had a chance to visit the new German Army Museum in Dresden.
Who knows Munster and comes to Dresden to see tanks will be very disappointed. 
Dresden is a Museum to explain and show different aspects of war or aggressive conflicts. No wonder that you can see there things from more than 500 years history. From early knights, their weapons, the evolution of riffles and much more to cold war exponents, they show a lot.
The most interesting part for me was of course the WW II department. As I said, not that much tanks, only some vehicles but therefore you could see what war means in relation to movies, to civil people and a lot more aspects I never thought about. At the end I found some tanks outside, most of them after WWII. On the other side they showed for example which animals humans had used or still use to support them for fighting. 
Here is are some highlights which I liked the most.

Sherman DWG (Deep Wading Gear) on the beach in Normandy

As D-Day comes closer I have started to get my shermans ready to jump onto the beaches of Normandy.
So one of the first modifications is this Sherman with a deep wading gear. Some other variants of the Sherman  will follow in the next weeks.

The first two pictures show the old Metal Troops model of the Sherman DWG.



Here is my version, based on a Dragon Sherman which had the right back to install the dwg to it.



The device is again printed in 3D. 
If you are interested in this version, so send me an email and I will offer the print via Shapeways.
