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.

I can only echo what others already said: absolutely fantastic! Can't wait to see your other 1/1 dioramas.

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?

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 .

Hi Leo,

 

Thank you! You have done a fantastic effort and made an excellent diorama; it is worthy of a museum.
