This is GB-Modelli's Obice 305/17 on DeStefano carriage and Trattrice Pavesi Tractor.The scene depicts it abandoned during the retreat of the italian army in November 1917 ,captured by KUK troops in a village near Udine.

Gosh, that's an impressive diorama, malaula. Well done! Some of the Great War's artillery pieces look so crude, but their raw power was terrifying.

Best wishes
Nigel

An extremely well done diorama with a somewhat unusual looking gun, the up-turned wagon is excellent.

Malaula, what scale is it and what kit did you use?

Thanks Nigel,Des,Mack and jörg! Mack,the gun and tractor are GB-Modelli Resin kits,the horse cart is from Jadar models,and all figures are conversions based on HÄT,Airfix,Emhar and Caesar miniatures,everything else is scratchbuilt,all to 72nd scale.
The GB-Modelli kits are quite expensive but well worth the money featuring crisp details and bubble free casting they are fun to build!

Now knowing that it is 1:72 scale makes it even more impressive, very well done.

Yes, that's lovely work.

A very unusual artillery piece.  I really like the fore-shortened photos of the gun.  Nice share

I can see we're going get a great collection of WW1 modelling in this thread.
Make Otto your motto for lovely spoked wheels.

Malaula,
            You are the 1/72nd WWI diorama king in my very humble opinion. This, and the others you've posted are simply wonderful.
