Thanks RJ,

 

it’s a nice little kit, not sure if I’m going to use the crew that comes with it yet.

Well you have made excellent progress on the gun - has there been any more since last week?

Kind regards,

Stix

Small update, 

Below is what I've used as a reference, it's a screen shot from the Band of Brothers. It's of the first gun position.

Sounds like a good approach Ozzy.  

That source image does look a bit too much like a film set for my taste, but you'll probably make changes along the way.

its amazing the difference, watching it on a normal TV it looks like it could have been filmed on location. With the uplift of 4K makes it all to clear that it’s on a film set. Hopefully my scene will look a little bit of both.

The still looks like it’s a scale model, I thought you had built that Ozzy and it wouldn’t have surprised me. I’m going to have to watch this episode tonight when SWMBO finally goes to bed

It definitely does Valkyrie, the technology isn’t always for the best. All episodes of the series were filmed in a studio, something you can definitely tell as the pictures get too clear. Hopefully my scene will look something like the screen shot? I  were recently repeated on pick so now have them downloaded, for future reference.

I think the 'studio' appearance of the image is, as you said, because of the clarity and depth of field rather than just the tidy-ness of everything.  It's good to see this one coming along.  In my yoof I made many dioramas but I lack the courage these days. 

 

If you add some defenders perhaps you could consider the Dragon kit of Osttruppen surrendering?  Of course I'm sure you have everything in hand for a great result.

i do enjoy diorama building, mine is the reverse to yours. I’ve used that Dragon kit before and they are a versatile set, my plan is to have this as the first Gun. The kit comes with a firing crew, so I’m going to have a few still in action and a few doing local protection. With Airborne troops in a trench moving in.
