    Hello guys. I'm with BATTLE SCENE PRODUCTIONS or BSP and we produce some of the best dioramas in the world for Toy Soldier Manufacturers, Dealers and the like and we'd like to share them with all of you on this awesome Forum. Thanks for your time and patience. The attached diorama is scratch built and we used figures and vehicles from "Collectors Showcase"
    Regards, Morbshock AKA Nick

    It is certainly very well done.

    However, with what appears to be the rear end of a Panther tank, what is the guy in the hatch doing? IT appears as though he has been hit, but if that is the case, the tank men in the tiger, appear to be unconcerned with it.

    Ah yes. The Tiger crew are more concerned with what's ahead of them in this diorama. Only the right side of this diorama is shown. I'll attach the left side which is in B&W. This diorama was just released yesterday and many more pictures need to be released.

    Ah, so the panther seems to have steered into the building for some reason.

    That is the problem with little figures I guess, you can't get the ones you want to portray the type of emotion or movement you want for each scene.

    I am Nicks partner in BSP. The setting of the scene is the Panther recently got hit, and veered into the building, A German squad arrives on the scene to secure the area, and try to assist the Panther crew. The Tiger just got on the scene, and is just beginning to react to the carnage.

    You guys do some fantastic work. I could never be in your class in Dio building and such. I wasn't bad-but I was mediocre at best-especially compared to these shown here. The two best Dois I evr did were:

    1) Was a jungle scene somewhere in the Pacific and showed a Japanese Banzai attack against a small unit of entrenched British Soldiers. I used about 100 soldiers for this one.

    2) Was a simple and small Dio which was just a tiny section at Roarkes Drift. This one showed 5 24th Rgmt of Foot--Soldiers holding a section of fence (which was supposed to represent the Corral) and there were I think 15 Zulus I used in the assault on said position. This one by far-as far as artistic skills are concerned-was my absolute best dio ever. This one only took about 10 or so hrs from beginning to end-with the exception of a little time scratch-building the scenery and fence and such.

    BTW, thesde two Dios were done in 1/72nd scale which is my favorite next to 1/32nd or 1/35th.

    They sound like cool dioramas. I haven't worked much in 1:72 but plan to create a board game with 20 sections to it. I recently purchased 1:72 scale Union and Confederate soldiers from the ACW. I started painting them and plan to make a small tight diorama. I'm in no hurry. 1:35, 1:32, 1:30 are my favorite scales to work with.
