Thanks for the support guys!
And peter, I'll deffinitly look into belsy's posting. I'm dutch so obiously I have the receipt to get my money back for the tamiya kit .
Unfortinatly the IPA's and jägermeisters got the better of me tonight. So the only two wise decisions I made tonight where, making a *** load of money on the slot machine (wich will probably be spended on nee kits and materials) and not touching my models while being more than tipsy.
I'll try getting some more work done when I get off work tomorrow, to keep you front row people sattisfeid hahah.

I used Andrew's method for mine - 1/72 but looked OK.

Thanks for all the great tips on how to do the sandbags, i used to make them in a similair fasion, back in my warhammer days, from green stuff.
So I ordered the miliput online today, hopfully it will arrive on monday. I have two days off from work then so i might get some work done then. First I have to find a good pattern for the steet (I probably want cobble stone) and I have to figure out how to do the sidewalk.
After that i can get started with the plaster and make a lot of rubble, because most of the building is destroyed , I looked at some pictures of bombed german city's and in most of them nothing is standing up strait anymore so thats the look i'm going for. Any tips on how to make that kind of rubble?

You're off to a good start and looks like being an interesting diorama, I will keep a look in.

Miliput is great for sandbags - I've done it that way too. The only advantage of Fimo is you can treak it until you're happy that they sit well together before baking. Have fun!

thanks for all the support and interest guys!
here is a quick update. Today I started with the road section. I wanted to make a cobblestone road and looked at different ways to make them.
I started by making a mold for the road section, using cardboard. and filled it up with quick plaster.
after it was dry enough to release it flom the mold I flipped it upside down so I had the smooth surface up.
using the brushes I started laying out the brick pattern.
this technique worked really nice while the plaster is not completely set. Unfortunately when coming to the end of the road the plaster was to hard (and the metal on the brushes started to wear down) and the last part of the road broke off. I'm not planning on making a new one and because it is such a small section I'll probably cover it with sand and rubble, so I'm not that bummed out about it.
here are some pictures of how it will look like on the diorama.
and as always, feel free to give your comments and critique :D
