Russian anti-tank gun ZIS-2 (Slovakia)
(Monument and "open-air museum" in Skároš - the first liberated village in the district of Košice)

Scale : 1:25
Author : Ing. Ladislav Jakubčo, BaJ
Source : Fifík magazine

...brief description:
I will add another piece to the series of monuments and since we celebrated the end of World War II on 8-9.5, I am adding a monument for this period. The ZIS-2 model was released in Fifík, I made the pad according to the real monument in Skároš, which looks like this:



...As for the model itself, I thought it was a simple model, but the tubular parts were not quite simple, at least for me ... I tried to improve the model at least a little... I added a little patina ... maybe it looks a little better ... I tried to make the pad according to a real memorial. , a few photos:

These are great looking Zax. I missed your earlier posts. The details you've added really make it impressive.

TO: Kevin WS
Thanks

Hachiko (Japan)
(Bronze statue at Shibuya Train Station in Tokyo)



Another piece in a series of monuments. Not only important people and events have memorials, but a few animals have their own statue. I like dogs, they keep me company all my life (now I'm sixth), so when I found this 3D model, I had to include it in my collection. It is therefore a combination of 3D printing (sculpture and inscription) and a paper model (pedestal).
As for the model, it probably doesn't need to be explained, it is a dog who, after the death of his master for 9 years, went every day waiting for the station for his master ... 2 films were made about him. The statue was erected at the station, where he waited every night. More here:
Hachikō - Wikipedia

Really nice your memorials, Zak!

I found particularly touching, for absolutely different reasons, the Berlin Wall and Hachikō statue.
To those who likes dogs I suggest to read the Jirō Taniguchi's comic story "Inu o Kau" (Raise a dog).

Zak, is the template of Berlin Wall somehow available?
