  1. I had some stuff left over from recent larger dioramas, and nothing left in the stash to start :(. So decided to build a small vignette using the 'leftovers'. This shows a British universal carrier that has somehow got lost in South Netherlands during late 1944. The profusion of German signs adds to the confusion and the small boy isn't much help either. Universal carrier is from Tamiya, as are the figures but with resin heads. Can't remember who supplied the small boy, ebay probably.
  2. Thank you all for your kind comments. I think I struck lucky with the mud as it was the first attempt at deep mud. I peeled the top layer from some 5mm foam board then cut the tyre tracks out. Then spread some Galeria modelling paste over it. Once dry airbrushed with Mig ammo acrylic brown and touched up with the Mig Ammo mud set pigments etc . Probably couldn't do it again if I tried.
  3. Calling this finished now AFV Club 1/35 scale gun truck with some extra armour added from plasticard. Decals are from Star (I know, this does not depict the actual Bounty Hunter truck). Figures are from Paracel and are excellent, ordered direct from them in Vietnam and arrived quickly and safely. Paint is Life Color, Tamiya and Vallejo acrylics and weathered using Mig Ammo mud effects pack and oil washes. Base is just made from a drawer front and foam board. All comments welcome
  4. Ahaa, well apparently you can use Johnson's Future as a floor polish as well as for making models....Who knew
  5. Thank you. Yes the garage walls and floor are Fujimi too. Also has 2 clear perspex sides and top to make it into a display case, but haven't put them on yet
  6. Finished the diorama at last. The MGB was on here months ago but never got around to finishing the scene until now Fujimi garage accessories.
  7. Just finished this one eventually after having it half built on the shelf for months concentrating on the other WW2 diorama, Very happy with the end result though Fujimi garage accessories, and Aoshima 1/24 scale MGB
  8. Thank you. The glasses are photoetch provided with the figure from Stalingrad miniatures. One of the fiddliest pieces of PE I have ever used! I have yet to fix the figures down permanently, so will definitely be giving their boots a bit of mud and dirt once the glue dries
  9. Thanks for the great comments . I forgot to mention that I used the Life colour acrylic paint sets for flesh and the British uniforms, and can highly recommend both
  10. Just finished this at last! Sherman Firefly of the Grenadier Guards 'somewhere in south Holland' taking a break during Operation Market Garden, while they watch the infantry round up the stragglers from the ruined 20mm AA gun crew. The gun has slipped into a crater on the canal bank, and a young Dutch boy looks on. Ryefield Sherman tank, figures from Panzer Art, Alpine, Tamiya (with resin heads), Stalingrad and ReedOak. The house and surrounds are scratch built and the canal is resin with a small amount of green paint added. Painted using mostly AK and Tamiya paints and weathering products.
  11. Very nice, and much more detail than the Tamiya kit too . Are the figures from Miniart?
  12. Thanks, I shall have to get some micro drills methinks. My Black & Decker might be a bit extreme
