It is a pleasure to tell you about our projects.
Unfortunately I'm just a guest this time. And therefore not fully involved in the process. Mine modest work in mastering the depiction of the village in the foreground. So the real thing happened in the middle.
I will address your questions later.
when everything is installed and every blade of grass is where it belongs.


many figures have been rebuilt. to bring more drama into this depiction. There are already many figures on this topic, but very few collectors will dare to rework their figures. Most of the figures are from the actors' private possessions. So these are figures donated by these collectors and what you can find in scrap boxes on exchanges today.
Newly soldered together, perfectly painted and unique pieces are created!
If you look closely you will see many figures that are from a different era. Or that the brush has left the original contours of the engraving on the figure.

Magnificent work!
May we get some information about the details of the work?
About how many figures are involved?
Are the figures commercial ones (I mean they are purchased) or are they "tailor made" unique figures for this diorama?
Who are the editors of the figures?
About how many hours were required for the figure-painting, and creating the environment?


Anyway, it is an outstanding artwork!


Congratulations!
Sandor

This is almost the finale, so there is no more village landscape!
At the weekend, Frank Bähr and his son Cristian designed the foreground...

Jörg Tietze (essentially responsible for the historically accurate implementation of the guns and figures) and Jörg Hensel (for the background and painting of figures) will be available as lighting assistants on this day.
Alex Seinbrecher, who initiated the topic, was particularly involved in the historical documents. Unfortunately we had to forego seeing him in person because he was unable to attend for another reason.
As always, Jörg Henschel, our lighting master, provided enough light and also painted some of the figures.
I may have forgotten a few actors... But the big package fell on Frank Hartmann, he always provided us with plenty of work. which we still have a lot to do.

Good morning, hi Wolfgang!
I am looking forward to see the steps of building up the whole diorama.
I find the shown burning house - the rendition of the flames and smoke -  magnificent!
Enjoy the further work!

New diorama project with old team.
As the “Connewitz 1813” diorama proved successful when it was created, we are continuing.

The resulting diorama was originally intended for the museum in Borodino.
But the ongoing political situation prompted us to find a location.
After the work is completed, the diorama will be on display in the Army Museum in Dresden.
Rubo's location in the panorama was not used to depict the attack of the Saxon cuirassiers. At the time of the attack, only the remains of houses that had been burned down by artillery fire remained of the village.
He also had to make compromises on the cyclorama of Rubo in order to create his depiction!
