Here is a diorama that I built several years ago. The Tiger tank is
the old Tamiya model with a lot of changes and additions from various
manufacturers of resin and/or etched metal parts.
The tank belongs to sPzAbt. 501 (schwere Panzerabteilung 501) and shows
a scene during their deployment to North Africa (Tunisia) in 1942/43.
„501“-tanks of that period featured several unique production and
field modification items, such as the small front fenders and the
headlights that were moved from the hull top to the upper front plate in
order not to interfere with the traversing gun barrel.
The tank is painted in RAL 8020 – the standard colour, the tanks
received prior to shipment to North Africa.
The tracks come from Friulmodelismo and the various figures are all
Building the tank with all the modifications, improvements and detail
sets was a lot of work but I consider it worth the effort as I still
like the model and diorama very much today, although it is already over
ten years old.
I hope that you will enjoy it too.
