Drang Nach Osten - Barbarossa dio

Hi planet,
Some time ago I came up with an idea depicting a scene from Barbarossa period. I had old ESCI leIG 18 and zvezda's Ba 3 so I decided to put them together in one scene. These models aren't amazing but they were quite nice to built. And here's the story:
The whole scene is located in a village somewhere in Western Ukraine. Red army men are retreating in a rush and leaving their broken or damaged equipment behind them. German SS infantry attacks and this LeIG 18 is giving fire support for advancing troops.
The figures are conversions of DML's SS Sturmpioniere and one figure is from LAH at Kursk set. Actually everything except sunflowers (which are from Aber) is scratchbuilt. The cotage is from balsa, pottery is from Magic Sculpt, fence is from thin wood sheet used for furniture maintenance.
Everything is painted in humbrols and artistic oils (figures and weathering).
I still have to add more hay bundles to the gun, some gear to the SS men and work a bit more on the camo pattern (I'm not good in painting camouflage...yet)








Here are some bigger one's:

And here are photos from the earlier stages:

Hope you like it.

Great stuff...we have another base builder here! I've had my eye on the sunflowers for awhile...how are they to work with?

I really like this! It really looks like the Barbarossa pictures you see so often. Great choices for the gun and armored car. And your groundwork is fantastic! Keep up the good work!

Thanks guys for your comments.
Rick the only problem I had with those sunflowers was during the painting process. Now I know that it's better to do the paintjob when they are left on the brass sheet... They are very flexible after cutting them from the sheet and it's hard to paint them that way.
I'll post photos of the finished scene probably during the weekend.

I liked the composition / layout, groundwork; especially touches like the pots on the fence. The weathering on the armoured car looks very convincing. Looks really like a scene from the russian front. Simple and effective!! Like you've mentioned, the camo pattern of the crew needs to be re-worked. Any overall shots of the diorama and close shots of the BA-3?


Regards
Julian
