1/6 WWII Diorama Photos
Kampfgruppe Von Abt is a modelling group dedicated to building 1/6th scale military models and taking diorama pictures with them. The use of action figures of such scale, along with the great number of props and vehicles scratch built for the dioramas is really quite breathtaking!
Behind the scenes - the village buildings were really built from scratch to replicate the scenes as if it were in a war movie!
The group also managed to make a 1/6 scale of the Dora railway gun, and look at the size of it compared to a man!
And here's one in a diorama shot.
As someone into WWII weaponry, I really love these diorama photos. Not only that the use of soldiers and props make things look very atmosphere, but the way the photos are blurred deliberately in some of the photos gives the sense of that the pictures were taken at that time period, or as if it's in a war movie.
Do check out more of their photos galleries here, along with their 1/30 scale dioramas in a separate section!
