  1. It's 1916 and the German front lines have recently replaced their pickelhaubes with the new M16 steel helmets. Here we have a German officer leading a raid across no man's land in the hopes of bring back a couple prisoners to see what's all the mechanical noise they are recently hearing. Figures are modified Verlinden WW1 German figures by adding gas masks and the M16 helmets 1/16 scale. This was a longtime build which I probably started 10 years ago and just recently created the base and got it off the bench.
  2. Bob AK makes a diorama snow called Snow Microballons. It’s an acrylic powder.
  3. Zvezda 1/35 SU-122 with riders in winter camouflage. Two small trees are being used to hide the tracks. I always liked the unusual lines of the SU-122 but never bought the Tamiya kit (rubber band tracks). Then MiniArt tried to lure me into buying one but I didn't want to pay for an interior than wouldn't be seen. Finally Zvezda hooked me with their kit. Inexpensive and a relaxing build. Am sure our February was the basis for getting a snow scene in my head. We had several deep snows and set a new record for Omaha with -23 one morning. I walk every day for 35 minutes around a nea
  4. This diorama is one of the most realistic I’ve seen in my 50 years of modeling. Figures are outstanding, house details are amazing. Congratulations
  5. Thanks for the offer, I’ve already started plastic surgery on a WW1 pilot. If he survives the operation I’ll post an image.
  6. The tree stumps were donated by my backyard. Thanks for the kind comments.
  7. I thought I’d seen every WW1 triplane after my 55+ years in the hobby and reading everything I could get my hands on but this is a first. If this was April 1st I’d accuse you of playing a trick on us. Beautiful model of an unusual subject. Where did you find the plans?
  8. Their figures are amazing but I unfortunately didn’t see any pilot figures that would make into a Supermarine test pilot lots of modern jet pilots through. I’ll keep looking.
  9. Beautiful work! Am glad you finished it. I had to go back and verify the scale wasn’t 1/48.
  10. I’m not sure all that was ‘fixed’ on the SM79 but as others stated the camouflage is remarkable. I’m not sure all that was ‘fixed’ on the SM79 but as others stated the camouflage is remarkable.
  11. I would have liked to have mud being dropped off the rear tracks so show some motion but I couldn’t come up with any viable modeling solutions. I tried black poly fill with thick paint but it just didn’t look realistic. If anyone has any suggestions I’d like to hear them.
  12. I’m going to build the prototype Spitfire. I’ve recently bought the Paragon set, decals and have a Tamiya Spitfire. I’d like to display the model taking off and have been trying to find an appropriate non-military pilot for the cockpit. My eBay search returns German, French, US and British WW2 pilots which have too much gear molded on. Any thoughts? I’ve also tried looking for a WWI pilot but the resin ones I’ve come across are standing.
