After the bombing of the Air Force, the Israeli army immediately entered Lebanon. A new Merkava tank was parked on a small basketball court. The tank crews chatted in the shadow of the tank and waited for the next order.
After a while, two children came, and the red boy pointed at the basketball stand and yelled at the tank crew:

"This is our basketball court!!!”

The little boy behind him clung to his "weapons" - an steel stick, trying to show a strong look.
The older soldiers were not worried about this. He was still sweating with a handkerchief, while the other was curiously watching the two little boys do the next step. Finally, the young soldiers responded loudly:

" go away!!!!!”

 

1/35 diorama Merkava mk1

In the process of making this Merkava, I have been thinking about how to make a diorama. I have always disliked the scene of fighting, so I decided to make this non-combat scene but also the scene of conflict between the two sides.

I chose children because only children can get close to Israeli soldiers. I didn't hesitate too much in the choice of location, I loved sports when I was a child, but I was very thin,our basketball court was often occupied by adults. At the beginning, I planned to build a football field, but then I thought that the football goal frame was not tall enough, so I changed to a basketball court. The forward-facing basket was in front of the tank and seemed to be blocking the advancement of the tank. The steel stick in the hands of the children contrasted with the huge new tank, just like 20 years ago when I was standing next to a strong adult on the court....

 

Thanks for watching and thanks to Google Translate.

Stunning! This is truly a piece of art. The naturalness of the figures is awesome, the whole scene is beautifully done, the tank, the weathering, the rubble all around, I just can't stop looking.

 

Have a nice day!

Fantastic scene. I especially like all the excellent details from broken concrete plates to curled and rusted sheets.

Great work. The tank looks like a serious piece of kit!

It’s like you don’t want him to talk to you.
