Here are three dioramas featuring Sd. Kfz. 9 FAMO Halftracks in 1/72 scale. The first is a Planet Models resin kit with Black Dog accessories. The figures are mainly from Preiser set 72505, augmented with others from one of their Luftwaffe sets. The crew has taken a break for lunch in the shade of a tree. The dog is painted to resemble one of my own.

This scene is the Revell FAMO towing an Italeri sFH 18 Field Howitzer, both very nice kits. The cargo is mainly Value Gear in the bed and Black Dog tarps on the fenders. Figures are a mix of Preiser and modified artillerymen from the Italeri kit.

This is the Trumpeter FAMO and transport trailer with a Zvezda Panzer IV. Figures are from the CMK set designed for the FAMO and a few from Caesar. I like the casual poses, particularly the bored guy on the back of the trailer.

Such comparative reviews are absolutely invaluable…and scarce. Great modelling and scenic setting.

My thanks too

"deciding if they are dioramas or vignettes"

And terrific miniature scenes any which way!

I think you cheated, and went back in time to take color photographs and then photoshopped those to look like miniature dioramas. Those photos of builds in progress are obviously faked.

Very nice work, though.
