How to start a tank scene diorama

Post by Bart007 » 08 May 2022 10:41

Hi all,

Just joined this excellent forum and been reading through the many different subjects and posts.

I'm looking to design my first diorama and am looking to use 2 Axis tanks I had previously put together. I'm looking for some inspiration of what scene to use.

Is there a good place to reference some photos, battle scenes, etc that could help me design the diorama?

I'm thinking of either creating a scene where one tank broke down and the other arrives to help with officers milling around. Or another idea is to use 1 axis tank and 1 allied tank and place the allied tank behind a broken down building as a trap.

I'm not really sure where to start and will continue looking at photos I come across. Any help or ideas would be brilliant :-)

The only rules in a diorama are, the subject must not overhang the base and KEEP IT SIMPLE, nothing worse than clutter..
Two vehicles parked to one side while a FEW crewmen have something to eat, or discuss strategy with maps!.
Less is more…
Good luck with the venture….

Thank you MAMC - if you can shed any light on these tank models I am planning to use I'd be most grateful:
