Bart, I just wanted to say that you did a beautiful job on this diorama. I remember seeing pictures in one of the squadron signal panzer colors books of them big cats surrendering. I have always had this idea in the back of my head and wasn’t sure how to pull it off with available figures of the time. You captured the scene beautifully and did a heck of a job!!!

Very, very well done. I'm especially impressed with the evocative poses you have the US Army soldiers display, from the Camera man, the commanding officer with walki-talki, to the soldiers leaning against the building.

It was worth bringing this one back up front for more praise as it's so well done. J

I'm glad it was brought back up, excellent job. Building, base, vehicles and all of the people. Sorry I missed it the first time. Bob

WOW... that is an excellent diorama. I especially like the expressions on the faces of that tank crew. They don't look too happy and even the body language reflects that....EXCELLENT! Excellent build, painting and layout! Just for historical purpose, X2 had taken a round, which did not penetrate, on the glacis plates between the barrel support and the front driver's side shackle mount....this was evident when she was surrendered. She was also covered with very many branches. Cheers, Joe

Keith Congratulations - that is one very good diorama. If I might make one small point, I think you will find that the hull MGs had been dismounted - in fact, the YouTube shows one of them being removed by a crew member, but your model seems to have it still mounted. Regards Rob

Thanks for the comments guys. Its been years now since I finished this diorama. Rob and Joe....I know every thing is not exactly the same as in the photos...that's ok....the photos were just for inspiration and the dio is not meant to be a copy of the photos or video.... Thanks for the comments again. Bart

I missed this one. Its excellent. I like how you made use of the German figure poses for surrendering. The base is cool. You got me thinking of new ideas.
