Hello all, Here is my entry for this Group Build - Tamiya's 1/35 M4 'Early Production.' Will be marked as a vehicle from the US Army in Normandy 1944, though the kit decals do not specify which unit. Kit: Extras: I know this set states it is for a Firefly, but most of it will fit onto the regular vehicle. To spice things up and to make the diorama I have planned, i'll be adding these: The plan is for the Sherman to come across an advance party of the 2nd SAS Regiment, who are returning from 'behind the lines' to report on Panzer movements and strengths. I'll be building the jeep and figures as part of this thread. Dave
So a little while back I was thinking how I could use up some of my excess figures without overcrowding other ideas for dioramas I have (got a bit of a ridiculous number going on lol), and I came up with an idea for a scene from Tom Clancy's: The Division video game. Base idea would be a group of soldiers - supposedly part of the Joint Task Force - from the game being pinned down on a street by a 'cleaner'. With this ide,a I can use three soldiers that I currently have, plus an old re-purposed Dragon SAS soldier or two, for whom I will make some air tanks and repaint. I've noticed Masterbox has a new modern set on the way that would be perfect for this as well as another diorama idea, so I'm aiming to leave open space to add them in. So far I have the pickup done, as well as three figures, the dumpster and some waste bags (rolled bits of Green Stuff). I've made up the tarp from Green Stuff, which will need to be painted (trick because there is nothing under it :P). The base needs some painting, and I plan to add a wall at the back of it (right side). I'll then add some snow texture from Tamiya, and a bit of powder snow effect as well. The pickup has already been 'frosted' with a bit of white spray. Used in this diorama so far are the 1/35 F-350 from Meng, soldiers from the Masterbox 'Man Down' set, Dumpster from the Meng 1/35 Vending Machine set, plastic drum from the Meng Highway set, and a holdall from the Meng IDF Equipment set. Down below is a quick breakdown of components, and a general idea of its eventual look And in truly 'black kit' Thanks for looking Gaz
