Great job! Now if you could just add a Japanese machine gun barrel protruding from the bunker.

 

Yes, certainly, but very hard to rebuild a type 92 barrel without plans.

Very Nice display.

 

A discarded Japanese bayonet and canteen on the ground would convey the theme as well.

That is excellent. The display is very creative and really sets up the figure. Your equipment, uniform and weapon are all in fantastic condition. Well Done.

Wow, fantastic work - really. If you were interested in trying to duplicate the fore-end of a Type 92, you could maybe get one of the 1/6 kits and build the specs (x6) for your display. Just a thought.

 

Again, phenomenal job.

This is top-notch! Museum quality work and idea.

 

I am going to pin this thread so others will see it.

 

If you could, would you mind telling us a little more about what materials you used, and any techniques you found worked best?

When I read the title and saw 1/1 scale I thought a typo, but I like the models I see there I will take a look. HOLY SMOKES this is just a top notch display. Nice job.

Hi

 

I always try to build a diorama as cheap as I can. I only buy scews ans paper glue ( less than 20 USD for this one ).

I have use olds wardrobe panels for the stand. The tree trunk, find in forest, is cut in several sections and fixed on the stand with screws and steel brakets.

For the front, I use expanded polystyren found in packaging, that are covered with plaster and old remaining paint.

The sand, pebbles and dry grass are found in near fields from my home. All of this is fixed at the front with a thick layer of glue.

 

Hope this can help you .

 

Leo

Hi all

 

The very first diorama I have build in 2013 was very light. I have use only howitzer wooden crates and ivy branch. It was only to present my 1919A4 MG in an original way.
