Photo Op - 1/72 Diorama

Recommended Posts

This is a 1/72 diorama showing a group of US troops who have come across a "Karl" Morser heavy mortar and this is being recorded for posterity. The "Karl" and it's ammo carrier are a Hasegawa kit. The Deuce and Half and the 20mm AA halftrack are Hasegawa. The 2 M3 halftracks are Italeri. The Jeep and Kublewagen are Academy. The figures are from a variety of sources and many were modified to more appropriate poses.

Overall shot:


The "Karl" with GI's climbing all over it.
