Hi!

 

I'd like to present the ICM 1/72 Zil-157 depicted here crossing a stream.

 

My first attempt at a detailed natural landscape with resin water. Everything other than the truck was scratch built.

 

The tree was created from twisted wire, masking tape and clump foliage. Stones, pebbles and gravel picked up from riverbeds during treks.

 

I used pastels on the terrain and the truck to blend the weathering of the truck into the landscape. The resin water acts as a perfect adhesive to tie the scene together. Ripples added as a second layer using fast drying clear resin dabbed on with a brush.

That's a very good dio, in particular the water. Very realistic.

Excellent work. Last time I was in India on a 4x4 trek we crossed a stream and disturbed some women doing their washing. I don't think they were expecting us to appear from nowhere.

A superb little dio, captured beautifully in these excellent photographs. A multitude of skills displayed here, but I'd particularly like to praise the composition which no one else seems to have mentioned. Wonderful stuff. Thanks for sharing it with us.

That's wonderful work; a very nicely designed bit of active scenery, and well finished truck, topped off with some excellent photography.
