I needed a winter tree for my scene so I made one from real branches and dried roots

 The base formed with a wooden frame and real soil and rocks added
 And a first test of all the elements of the diorama

Frozen Goulash

My next project depicts a winter scene in Hungary during 1945. A King Tiger tank pass through the bank of a lake during the retreat of the German forces. A band of soldiers  offers to the tank crew some food for a small rest.
Starting the project I desided to scratchbuild a traditional Hungarian farm house. Some reference photos from the wed, placticard, papercard and evergreen stripes helped me to buid it

Operation swinging

In the 4th  of May 1945 the German army  surrendered to the English forces in the Northern Germany. The story of this diorama depicts the return of a group of surrendered Germans with the escort of some English infantry men.In a brief stop the miller offers his fellow citizens a proper lunch while a German and an English infantry man constructs a swing under the kids surveillance.A symbolic action for some peace at last in Europe.
 Some photos of the finished diorama. Ready for swinging...

Making a river is always a challenge. Mine has about 1,5cm dept and needed four layers of clear resin to accomplished. Some turquoise blue added in the first two layers and the other two were clear to increase the feeling of depth.
 I made a frame with two strips of varnished wood and some tape. I then poored the resin layer every three hours 

The two first layers have that color

 No4 with some more dead leaves in the riverbanks
