17 Tiny Heroes Of The Big War

Tiny Heroes Of The Big War

Posted on July 15, 2011 by kulichik


There is a club that deals with making small figures that constitute beautiful dioramas. Its members are elder than 30 years old. The club was started at the Soviet times.

Every year less and less veterans who participated in the World War II are left. The youngest war participant in Dnepropetrovsk is now 84 years old. These people’s heroic deeds are captured in miniatures on military and historic themes.

The tiny figures are frozen in time. Before creating such a diorama an author needs to examine old pictures, historic evidence and drawings to achieve a complete identity between real things and their models.

The size of every soldier should not exceed 5 cm.

There is a room for fantasy. Snow here can be made of salt.

Every little detail is thought over.

Why would the soldier hold a goose in his hands?

Parts of such models can be bought in Dnepropetrovsk. There are 5 models in every box. What you need is to assemble the parts together and use a bit of paint. The process will make them alive.

Young people do not seem to be interested in this kind of hobby. But the miniatures can make anyone interested in history.
