Road to Berlin 2 This diorama was made for the ‘From Russia with Love’ GB. It features three Tamiya 1/48 tanks (a T-34/76, an SU122 and a KV-1) plus Zvezda’s 1/48 Yak-3. I had decided I’d do something similar to my MTO GB build where I made a diorama with three German tanks and one aircraft. My original intention was to have the aircraft flying over the three Russian tanks (similar to my MTO GB project) but when I saw Zvezda had included a rather nicely detailed engine I changed my plans and decided to have it on the ground with the covers off. This meant I had to change my original spacing on the board so I opted to make this diorama as a kind of follow-up to my Vignette GB scene. The three tanks are passing a temporary airfield which is slightly further back along the road from my original Road to Berlin Vignette. These tanks are just responding to the same situation in the fields to the south, spotted by the IS-2 crew up ahead. At the time the people on the edge of the airfield seem oblivious to what is happening on the road on the other side of the bank. The base was made to fit the frame which I got from Wilkos but I ended up doing this one in a bit of a rush to make sure I finished before the deadline for the GB and ended up simpler than intended and with a few compromises. The base for the scene is made from 4mm MDF covered with a layer of Polyfiller which I painted with thinned Humbrol Dark Earth. Over this I used Woodland Scenics Blended turf and a variety of tufted grasses from Army Painter. The trees are also from Woodlands Scenics. The figures around the aircraft are from ICM and the figures in the tank scene are all from Tamiya.
