1⁄35Triage at Aachen - 1945
"Triage" is a diorama based on a photo from a book I was saw called “A
Photographic View from the Other Side”. This was a propaganda photo showing a
scene in Aachen, the first German territorial city to fall to the allies in
This photo details a rear-guard urban scene within the city limits during the fighting. A shattered home has been converted into a triage station, manned by several nurses and a few aides. Various branches of the German services are detailed, including panzergrenediers, werhmact, luftwaffen ground forces, and even a command HQ courier.
The buildings incorporated where highly detailed renditions from a commercial Custom Dioramics kit. Both “buildings” were extended in perspective to show multiple rooms using styrofoam, wood, and plaster.
The view depicted here is an aerial perspective showing a shattered bedroom, just above the former den of a private household. As an iron rail bed balances precariously above the floor below, a large beam has been wedged in place to prop of the remaining rafter.
