This piece is part of a collection of scenographic pieces for SWS, an English company for which I am working.
These pieces are focused on the realization of vignettes or dioramas, mainly for collectors of military figures.
The basic principles for designing these pieces are the same as in the crib: shape, volume and perspective as well as fidelity to the architectural styles of the time and place where you want to represent these scenes.
This product line represents different scenarios of Southern Italy in 1943, although there are dozens of photos from that time in which to take the details of the pieces, I chose mainly as inspiration the pictures collection "Rome Sparita" from the Austrian painter Ettore Roesler Franz, where a number of very picturesque details can be see coupled to a remarkable representational faithfulness, some details of these scenes have been adapted to the taste and needs of the clients of the firm.
Since this is my first contact with this area of modeling I was also advised by some modelers like Carlos Elias Llop and Victor M. Sanz-Yrazu Echevarria with extensive experience in this field.
