Not bad and not a very common set any more.

May I suggest some dry brushing/highlighting...it´ll bring out the colours.

i only uploaded the fotos earlier, i took them fri BEFROE a day of weathering etc n detailing (im always a couple of days behind putting up fotos). they are a lot more advanced now.

i bought a dvd yesterday from the bliltzkgrieg of poland, for a quid, and while crappy orig fotos, enough to show somethings where the kit is wrong (well different way of carrying stowage).

the plastic is poo. soft, nightmare to stick and lots of flash. i will put up the latest fotos later, once transfer them from my camera.

It'd be great to see the artillery piece temporarily unhitched and the horses utilisd to pull a light vehicle that has boogged down in the mud.

Just a thought but it'd look cool if the driver of the vehicle had a complextion that was flushed red with embarrassment.

Now that is looking good.

ta. the putty etc is still soft after 24 hours, so will give it a couple of days. (run out of halford car primer so might be longer until i have some money)

i just wanted to get a rough idea of how it looks, swop around the standing figures etc etc. i need to make a fence, hence matchsticks

Concidering the small scale,this is a first class work !

thanks, much to do....the brown ground is made of 12 year old tea leaves. mixed with watery pva glue, so has just about set....i will prime it then paint it.

i wont add more figures, as i feel that would be too much. but the idea was 'horse power v horse power. ' and some germans smoking next to that opel blitz lol

i will try to capture the idea of a sudden rain storm...
