Miniature War Scenes

A LiveJournal site (in Russian) has a collection of pictures of intricately-detailed miniature war scenes, originally found on a Japanese site. If you can translate any information on this for me, I'd appreciate it! Link -via Dark Roasted Blend

Update 3-2-09: I found the artist! His name is Mark Hogancamp, and you'll find links to his works here. (Thanks, valr!)

Cool, as far as translation, I ran it through the Google Translator and you can make some sense of it:

I believe that the artist who created this work was on this american life, the television version on showtime, season two. his story was really amazing.

as phrancis says, the Jewish execution / mass grave scene is... disturbing indeed. Better never forget.

The rest of the miniatures are truely amazing, as I remember building and painting those kind of stuff as a teenager, I can testify, it's a HUUUge piece of work.

...japanese otakus! ^^

still interested in translation? I can do some of it, although I'm not a native speaker and some of it is not in my realm. Here goes.
Post title: Toys?
-super toys
-and the right up is also pretty good
-cut off the head of anyone who calls them toys. this is nothing less than 'artistic miniatures'
-true, in fact very high quality
-classy. if you're not opposed, I'll post a link
-not against. I don't get worked up over that.
(from here it's going to get more general, since there are phrases I'm not 100% about)
-I noticed they really like to do Germans
-Japanese? (they) simply love it. it's purely esthetic, however-- photogenic even. but if there's a nationality of pure visualists, it's the Japanese.
-yes, but in general, not just the Japanese... as someone who's very much interested in model figures, I can say that in [BBT- don't know what this is] and aviation, percentage of Germans is quite high, not to mention in miniatures and dioramas. as far as ships, [they haven't reached the same level in number of vessels as the Japanese, Americans and English]
-it's notable among the Japanese. but these photos are from some Japanese model convention- notice the labels. as I said, everything they do is esthetic.
-yes, what they do as far as models go, that's so. I'm talking about something different altogether- about the fact that the '3rd Reich' theme is very popular
-that's what I'm talking about- they look cool. They've even managed to shoot the Jews in a stylish way.
-yes, these dioramas have affected me greatly.
-esthetics, [?]
-it's just that you've not seen many kits (many displays??). I, having seen similar ones and also on the theme of the arab wars and the theme of [VMV??] I'm used to it. Dioramas with unhit T-34 or KV- there are very few of them. Interesting that dioramas with Is-2 that have been hit don't exist at all. And Soviet aviation as a class is missing.
-a question in regard to 'person in general interested in model figures'- what do you collect? I'm not just being nosy, I mean for what purpose?

this is too long for the comments- is there a way to get in touch with you? are you interested in the rest?
