  1. Hello all…. Again! Hoping to start this one in a few weeks and I might not be able to finish it within time but will hopefully be my second entry to this gb. It’s going to be a bombed out soviet tank factory during ww2. It’s a fictitious battle scene where soviet infantry and a KV-2 retake the KV factory in the army group north/Leningrad sector. It’s all in 1/48, a scale I haven’t done before: The kits I’m going to use are: I know I didn’t have to show the sprue shots but just wanted to show that this one remains un-started. The Kv-2 was the most industrial looking tank I could think of and will be a straight up rip of the 528 vehicle which uncle nightshift did. I’m not so great at construction and so want to try improve in this area by doing a follow along. I’m going to have to try and make some copies or one copy of the tank (or elements such as the turret) from scratch!!! Using the kit as a basis I’ll use plasticard to try and knock it up. It’s a kind of shop of horrors with tanks. The idea (and this where I get super lofty) is that the tank is revisiting it’s destroyed birthplace and comes face to face with its unfinished, rusted self. The tank and infantry will be the functional part offering contrast to the wrecked factory and unseen enemy. Originally this was going to show the occupying Germans with panzer grenadiers and a mk iv to counter the attacking Russians but this would be far to big and would take even longer. I had initially wanted to do the Krupp factory which was bombed and where I got the idea from, along with these pictures below: But it’s think the soviet factory will look even better as some snow would have fallen through the broken roof and I get the chance to plaster the place in communist slogans and propaganda. https://thetyee.ca/Culture/2018/06/14/How-Factories-Made-Unmade-Us-All/ I’ll start with the figures this time as their about 15/16 of them which I’ll use and so could be quite time consuming, seems better to get done first. I have a little surprise for the factory building and base which I’ll be making from scratch… all I’ll say is that it will involve a lot … lot lot of rust!! All the best and thanks for looking in. Paul.
  2. Hey everyone. So my latest project was this small vignette I made completly from scratch. The vignette is 1/72 scale with diameter of 6cm. The solider and a dog are from the old pack of Revell figures. The base was made on the old cover of mustard dishes. I love to work with natural elements to achieve the wanted realism, that's why I used real wood,rocks and soil. The house was made from the balsa wood and then covered with a putty. I used AK paints and washes. For the reference photos I used photos from ruined city of Saint Lo in 1944. I am very happy with the result because this was the first time I built the ruins on vignette. Anyways, here are the photos and I hope you guys will like it Cheers from Slovenia, Gašper Podbregar
