Abandoned near Anzio

Steffen Christmann shares with us some images of his diorama ‘Abandoned near Anzio’. This diorama utilised the Dragon Model Elefant which was enhanced using ABER Photo etched parts and Friul Model tracks; the tree in the diorama is made completely from scratch using a copper wire frame work.
