    I drilled holes in the ground and will remove the bamboo, when putting the leaves Thanks
  2. USMC Sniper team, Vietnam 1/35

    Small progress with the bamboo I cut 2 mm and 1 mm plastic tubes in small parts, which I widened a bit at the ends with a toothpick. Then with thin cement, I pressed the parts to glue them. Painted with different colors and I have to make some more leaves and put them on the bamboo stems.

    Yep, I'm waiting some photoetch ferns and will continue
  4. USMC Sniper team, Vietnam 1/35

    Thank you, then I'm sure you will like these, my next dio with resin figures, Special forces from Evolution miniatures But first, to finish this project-this will be the final composition, some ferns and bamboo left to do. In the end I will weather and glue the figures.

    It's not the typical ivy, but indeed there are similar plants
  6. USMC Sniper team, Vietnam 1/35

    More rice stems and some grass
  7. USMC Sniper team, Vietnam 1/35

    I will put grass tufts on the banks to cover that effect and leave the rest as it is Thanks, Venelin
  8. USMC Sniper team, Vietnam 1/35

    I mean that the water is slightly rising at edges-banks etc, the rice stems, sorry if I'm not using the correct word I will add more rice and the second thin layer of fresh water will level the whole thing
  9. USMC Sniper team, Vietnam 1/35

    Thanks for advice! This is my first try with rice paddy and water and that capillary effect is bothering me. I will add second, thin layer, this time not tinted and will try to put more rice in the rows. Ivy will be corrected, it didn't look right for my eye too. I want everything to look right Regards

    I added also some ivy, for visual interest Regards

    The first try with the water was unsuccessful, I used AK still water, but although I applied it thin, it shrinks and cracks. So removed the stuff (along with the soil ) and restored the terrain with the textured paste.This time I used Pebeo crystal resin-lovely stuff. No bubbles either when mixing or casting the water. I tinted it a bit with oil colors for effect. I have to sand the sides and some corrections, but I liked the result overall.

    Oils are very good for figures too, I will be curious how your diorama will look at the end, nice work with the wire trees . Regards, Venelin

    Thank you very much for the positive comments! Badder, diluted PVA (50/50) is used for fixing the scatter Several years ago, I was afraid of figures too, but now I think they're the most enjoying in modelling along dioramas/vignettes. You should try, only practice is needed Venelin

    Thanks! Some scatter from tea, spices, crushed dry leaves etc. Venelin
  15. USMC Sniper team, Vietnam 1/35

    I've made earth paste (talcum/baby powder+PVA glue+some fine chinchilla sand+acrylic colors), it was lighter in color intentionally. Dries fast, no cracking when applied in thin layers. Then various washes, achieving the wanted earth tones. Fresh mud wash, where the water will be. Finally drybrushing Vietnam earth pigment here and there.Next some scatter leaves and vegetation.
