Civil War scene (scale 1/72)
Posted 24 December 2011 - 01:01 PM
Modeling is one of my passions.
I present you my first diorama which represent an installation of artillery battery during the Civil War, in 1/72 scale.
The figures are hand painted and wooden fortifications are in genuine wood.
I let the photos speak :

Looking for the following:
WWII-postwar named aircrew/gunner/pilot/etc. uniforms, ground crew is very cool as well if it is identified!
WWII US Navy Uniforms from the Battle Off Samar: USS Hoel DD553, USS Samuel B. Roberts DE 413, USS Heermann DD532, USS Dennis DE 405, USS John C. Butler DE 339, USS Raymond DE 341, USS Fanshaw Bay St. Lo, White Plains, Kalinin Bay, Kitkun Bay and Gambier Bay...
***Lastly, I'd gladly hack off an arm and/or leg for anything related to the 155th Assault Helicopter Company, Camp Coryell, or Ban Me Thuot in general.

Thanks for your message !
There is an Italeri set where you find different guns : Parrott, Napoleon, Gatling machine gun.
Another box is focused on Union artillery, but it tend to be the same that the artillery set.
And most of the soldiers are from Italeri too. Only engineers are from Revell and it was Confederate soldiers normaly.
Here are the links of these sets :

I've not found a lot of documents about the Union artillery organisation. And I was not sure for the fortifications too. So, I did that with what I had.

Great close-up photos. I'd like to see an overall view---other than the aerial shot.

Great diarama i really like the civil war for the history, uniforms and weapons ect, the cannon and revetments are really good and defensive. I see you have the Redlegs there, i had an ancester in the 14th Brooklyn N.Y.S.M,
Killed at Gettysburg on little round top. He was called Cpl, Albert Pendrill, the painting is really good on the soldiers very tedious i should think but you have done a great job. thanks for showing it.
