thanks to all of you

TO:missileer

Yes, that's kind of it... I'll just specify, I'll use both halves of the shell, which gives me more space, but it needs to be set up so that the shell can be completely closed, and that's sometimes the hardest thing ...


TO:papermate

Someone has already suggested to me that I could turn it into a flea circus, but I have already made the figures ...

the eyes are already weaker, I use glasses and a magnifying glass, but once a year it can be endured

I made the terrain in the lower shell. Here I place a transporter (on the road) and a motorcycle (to the left of the lake) ...

So I'm done. I'm glad that I managed to finish it this year as well, even though it's a bit of a burden, especially for the eyes. Let me just summarize, the competition was originally organized by minimodel.cz, it was not announced in 2020 and it has probably already ended definitively. I keep going.
The essence of this competition was to glue a model of any technique and place it in a walnut shell so that it could be completely closed. I stayed with the military theme, this time I finally got to the Eastern Front.The whole nut is about compromises, what can still be done and especially how to do it so that it can be closed, so it must be taken that way ...

In the nut I tried to create the following diorama:
The story takes place in the USSR during World War II, a unit of the Wehrmacht at Sd.Kfz. 222 stopped by the lake to rest. Here they were caught by a motorcycle to warn them that the Red Army was close. He suddenly emerged from behind the hill T-34 with an infantry, which sealed their fate ...
I will mention a few details:
-I gave something to almost all the soldiers, so the motorcycle clutch has a message, the soldier next to the transporter smokes, the Russian soldiers have weapons (although I could have made them even smaller ...), the soldier behind the transporter, I put a tree there, with which I originally he didn't count, but he came in exactly that place ...
-The tank has a rotating tower, so if I close it it has to aim in front
-in the upper shell there is a spring from which water flows into the lake in the lower shell, I created a stream of water from a fiber that is used in a light fountain. In order to close it, it is glued at the top and it slides into the hole in the lake at the bottom.

In the diorama I used the following models (free models from the internet):
-Sd.Kfz. 222 Ausf. B (1:87 reduced to 1: 200 - R&P Models)
-Zundap KS750 (1:87 reduced to 1: 200 - R&P Models)
-T-34 (1: 100 reduced to 1: 200 - Rawen)
-I finally used 9 pieces of soldiers in the nut.

Just like in previous years, I glued the walnut to the stem of a cup with an engraved name ... Also, this walnut got a base, where there is some talk and photo.



A few photos:



... one more common photo of all the nuts:



... and finally a presentation video as with other nuts, where there are more photos:

And now we have soldiers, WITH WEAPONS, added to the mix! This is really mind boggling. Thank you for sharing your magnificent talent with us.

Thank you, I'm glad I kind of glued it to this year as well, and now I'm thinking about what I could put in the nut next year

Splendid!

Thank you for sharing this!

And I am really with the care and detail that you put into its presentation as well.

thank you, every time I finish such a more complex model, I ask myself if it makes sense to put so much time and energy into it ... when I see other people like it, it probably makes sense

You know that you have achieved something in making those models.
So do I.
Therefore it makes a lot of sense.
