Every diorama starts off with opening the box of a model kit, and few people are as devoted and patient as Fredrick. Fredrick Haritoonian has grown up in the machining and mold making business. With a constant attention to close tolerances, working in the aerospace industry made Fredrick an excellent candidate for building the extremely detailed model pieces, particularly made by the Dragon and Lion Roar companies. Some of the pieces, such as a Stug III, require the assembly of over 800 pieces. These are kits that most model builders give-up because of the amount of labor involved. Fredrick says the more complicated a kit is the more enjoyable. He builds all of the vehicles, figures, buildings and trees that are depicted in the numerous Eastern Front pieces.
