I saw this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcSf-RlO6RM&t=10s
and I had an idea like this ....




so I decided to create a diorama where a panzer fell on the stairs , next to a ruined factory in Germany and civilians looking at it, a policeman telling them "" go home the war is over""
The diorama is 30 width 40 depth and 40 height (this is the space I had..)
Beginning with the stairs (all materials are "homemade" except the chariot....)
here is the begining

While I like the concept, the question begs, why would a tank be going up the stairs? Too easy to get stuck or ambushed. I feel they would stay on roads where ever possible.

Like Jesse, it does sound very interesting and you have a nice start going but I am not sure of the conditions to make that happen. Tanks would stay away from openings for that reason. The only stairs I think wide enough or strong enough to hold a falling tank would be something like a subway.

At the end of the day, this is your project so power ahead with the build your way.

Could they be external stone steps instead of internal wooden ones? I’m sure tanks accidentally ran off roadways onto steps like that and got jammed. You could have bent & mangled metal railings at the top too

When you’re in your tank, and someone in another tank starts shooting big, armor-piercing rounds at you, the TC yells at the driver, “get us out of here, go, go go!” The driver, with very limited vision. Hits the gas, an the beast goes wherever...

Down the stairs is considered s much better solution than toasted and dead.

Hi Tim
Of course it will be stone stairs and yes there will be,not only railings,but also a lot of irons and debris from the fall
This is a rough start


thanks

Hi Ralf
""much better solution than toasted and dead""
