Wunschdenken.... or: "I wish I had one of those!"

Recommended Posts

While approaching the last stretch of my large Karl diorama, I really needed to do a small project to keep the mojo flowing.
Hence I pulled out this MiniArt tractor kit, and together with the MK35 farmer which was gathering dust in the stash, I came to the following story...
A famer, transporting two filled buckets of water suddenly sees this big, powerful and somewhat shiny tractor... His jaw drops open while he thinks:"If only I had one of those!!!" Hence the title: Wunschdenken.
I found this small (30x24 cm) project very enjoyable and I tried some techniques which turned out out remarkably well...
Thanks for watching and enjoy the pictures...

There are times when keeping it simple works best.

This is an excellent little story that I very much like.

Love the water sloshing out of the bucket on the wheelbarrow.

@CadmanThank you very much for the compliments...  

The spilling water was actually a sort of last minute addition that jumped into my mind. It also provided me with the challenge how to represent this in a convincing way. And the answer was a small piece of fishing line, repeatedly being dipped in CA glue in a stroking way....

Very nice, I like the story.  The leaking bucket looks good and you’ve caught the expression on the farmers face perfectly!

It is always a pleasure to see that people are enjoying my doings and I want to to thank you for your kind words... The head came with the figure so the credits go to the sculptor. I just turned it to the right...
