PlaStix posted a topic in Ready For Inspection - DioramasI built this small scene for the 70s NATO vs Warsaw Pact GB. I originally started with Modelcollect's 1/72nd T-64 MBT Mod 1972 kit - which is beautifully detailed and a joy to build. (If you decide to build one please be aware that the instructions are a bit wrong in places - I have detailed the problems with the instructions in my WIP thread). With the kit almost complete I realised that it would look good in a small vignette - in a scene similar to that shown in the box art for the kit. I also have a photo of an actual T-64 Mod 1972 in a similar location. There are no soldiers in the art work or photo. I think figures often bring a model to life and I was then lucky enough to find some suitable figures in a model shop in Birmingham a few weeks ago. The base is 4mm MDF with the surface built up with filler. Over this I applied various brands of turf, bushes and tufts and finished it off with two Woodlands Scenics trees that I had left over from a previous project. Kit: 1/72 T-64 MBT Mod 1972 by Modellcollect Figures: 1/72 Italeri (the tank figure was from a different set/manufacturer - I'm not sure which at the moment - I will try and find out when I get chance) Trees: Woodlands Scenics Turf, bushes and tufts: mix of Woodland Scenics, Greenscene and Army Painter Paints: Humbrol, Revell, Citadel and Railmatch - all applied by brush WIP: Here Tank RFI: Here The scene depicts some Soviet soldiers and a T-64 waiting and watching somewhere near a border in Eastern Europe. Please remember the tank and figures are all 1/72 and I have taken the photos fairly close up to them! Edit - 15/03/17 - These photos were taken over last weekend in daylight. The previous photos, which I took under electric light, are below these. I do actually like the appearance/light quality of the original photos - they have the appearance of the scene being set in the evening - which it was! New photos - on a white background: .....and some on my Spitfire display shelf: Below are the original photos I took one evening when I had just finished adding the figures so the light is just the electric light in the room. I have now added the photos above which were taken in daylight. Plus a three in black and white: Comments and suggestions welcome. Kind regards, Stix
