Crayons Posted April 24 Share Posted April 24 (edited) I wasn't going to start a WIP on my current project BUT muchmirth expressed an interest in the project as it is currently one of his three options aka a bunker diorama. The project started/formed after researching the Panzer 38(t) having just received the Tamiya offering with ALL the AM bling one could hope for; however, I also wished to start using some of the older kits in my stash. I had stumbled across an article, with a few photos of questionable quality, of bunkers that had been fortified(?) using the turret of an E/F Panzer 38(t) turret (and other tank turrets), which as I read on was quite common practice by the Germans. Knowing I had the most HORRID of Panzer 38(t) kits in my stash (Italeri kit number 212) I thought I would utilise it. The kit has the accuracy of a blunderbuss at 1000m, the turret; however, was usable to a point. That said, kit sans turret was binned. So, with a bunker in mind, a tank turret to use, what else could I use up? Enter the ancient Tamiya Soldiers at Rest kit number 35129. So, shitty tank turret and questionable ancient soldier set on hand, and limiting myself to what I have, no buying stuff for this, off I set, like a drunk wandering home from the pub thinking those last four pints were a fantastic idea. Rummage through the shed, 10mm Gyprock, 6mm MDF and some XPF wall insulation, brilliant start, might make it home from the drunken stagger after all. This WIP is going to be adhoc, with leaps in progress as the photos were sent to a friend and not really taken with a stage by stage WIP in mind. Follow along if you wish and let's see if I make it home after all those pints. Thank you for looking. Edited April 24 by Crayons 8 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
