Wow! What a great diorama, man! This looks awesome. Great settings there. Really like that bunker and those tan lego baseplates. That fw190 cockpit opened is a great touch! Schwimmer looks fine ! Like that big searchlight in the background with Marseille's plane. For plane landings offcourse. Like all those bearded guys! Really that African veteran look on those figs. That British Guy is taking pictures of your home there... Smiley

Great engine there! Your Son can realy make amazing stuff! I like the schwimmwagen. Much better than Cobi's original. It now has the right shape already. All cobi sets fit nicely with eachother. Realy like it! Smiley

Don't know if it's been brought up here yet, (MOC talk is pretty thick. Probably deserves its own topic at this point) but Cobi threw images of a new working for the M16 Half-track onto their site today...

http://cobi.pl/zabawki/klocki/mala-armia-ww2/m16-half-track---samobiezne-dzialo-przeciwlotnicze,art,9725.html

The original version looked fine to me before, but after seeing this, it makes the old one look kind of pathetic Smiley

They also listed a new boxed variant of the Hanomag with the movable front suspension. Not as many changes to that model though.

EDIT - Just noticed the F19 Lorraine 40T as well.

http://cobi.pl/zabawki/klocki/world-of-tanks/f-19-lorraine-40-t,art,9712.html

I think that piece at the very front of the upper glacis is new. If so I expect we'll see it in a few Soviet models in the future. The model looks pretty nice, except I really wish it had been made in a different color. This one is just going to blend in to my multitudes of Soviet, American, and British tanks that all use that same green. Smiley

However, new version or not, hanomag and m16 are TOO MUCH BIG for the minifig and every diorama project.

For the lorraine, just a modify on the frotnal hull and it's ok.

I took a couple more shots for my "COBI Big Brother" series, which features COBI models pictured together with the real vehicle they are based on:

Sturmtiger



Panzer I



SdKfz 173 Jagdpanther



Jagdpanzer IV



SdKfz 234



Jagdpanzer 38 Hetzer



See more pictures of my "COBI Big Brother" series at my flickr collection or visit the COBI Flickr User Group

Still A LOT more models to go ... Smiley

Nice.

You Europeans sure have it made as far as access to these vehicles goes.

I just posted my latest effort the other day on Little Deino's Twitter Of the M5 Stuart with an M3 Stuart. All I've managed beyond that are a couple of Shermans an a couple of half-tracks. And it looks like my options are going to continue to be severely limited until the National Armor and Cavalry Museum opens up several years from now.

Great stuff there Caracho! Fantastic images.... like that triple camo hetzer-moc. Must have cost a lot of cobi-set break-ups for that one!!

Here is a break down on parts for the new FW 190;

Samoloty nr. 12:



Samoloty nr. 13:



Samoloty nr. 14:

Actually the only parts I got specifically for the tricolor Hetzer are the green rims from a single Battle of Berlin issue No. 14 "Katyusha BM-13" (not the whole set, just the issue with the green rims).
The rest of the parts were from my spare parts collection of scrapped sets that I did not need for any other project.

But that probably means I might have scrapped a lot of sets for spare parts Smiley

For example the spare gun barrel was from 1 of 2 StuG IIIs I had combined for an all tan Afrika Korps StuG.

An the tan rims are from 1 of 2 SdKfz 251s I had combined for an all tan Afrika Korps SdKfz 251 ...
