Just beautifull Jenny! The interiour look very nicewith all the stuff in it it look like man live in that vehicle. And positioning that stuff and make it look confincing is very hard! And you aced it! Those stencelings on the ammo boxes and first aid kits are decals I presumme? What brand are they? They add a lot of realisme to the interior to!

Thank you again for all your beautiful comments , it really gives me great motivation to finish this the best I can .

Well I am almost finished the base Very Happy , with just some more weathering on the Marder & placement of the figures and a few accessories , if I get a good run I will be finished tomorrow Crying or Very sad , It is always a bit sad as you almost live the diorama through construction but still , when finished it is onto the next adventure cheers cheers cheers !






Well the telegraph pole is an Aber one , the arabic stop sign is from Monroe Perdu and comes with the building as do the other signs on the diorama . Very Happy

The back of the sign was painted Neutral grey .

the piece of paper caught on the barbed wire is from Plus models , all the scenics are from Treemendus ,the grass is unpainted & the forest litter was airbrushed a darker brown & then drybrushed with various lighter browns I wanted the corner to look like a slum but have enough detail to hold some visual interest .

I used fine solder for the cables from the telegraph pole to the .......

building mount which is from Custom Dioramics , the power box is from the old tamiya matilda with some evergreen strip & rod added .

The crow (who was going to be Cheyenne the crow until I realised it would be a hen Razz ) is Rosy the Raven who has left her nest to see what the ruckus is in the street below

Oooooh two eggs bounce bounce bounce bounce



The paling fence was given my version of the Chuck Doan treatment ( just not as good as Chuck does it Rolling Eyes )

The tussocky grass is from Treemendus.

The goat poop had me thinking for a while scratch Rolling Eyes ....... Then I started thinking of something close in shape only Idea , This product is from Treemendus , I think it is called forest fruit , I am going to use it on a future project as blackberries in a Hedgerow diorama , but proved ideal for my planned use . Very Happy

So with a coat of Dark olive drab (Tamiya) the goat poop was made cheers cheers cheers , now anyone who has followed a herd of goats knows they leave a constant trail as they go , so not all of this poop was from Geraldine Razz !

More soon ! Very Happy

Jenny,
One can only marvel at the way you design and build those bases of yours. So full of details!

Now, if I can suggest something...

The border of the sign is too white and looks too new compared with the rest. (Maybe that's on purpose I don't know.) What I do is paint the border with a brown marker, that way it looks like wood and doesn't draw so much attention.

But anyways, it is a great base so don't pay too much attention to my nitpicking. lol!

Well thank you everyone for the kind and friendly advice you gave me , I really appreciate the excellent photos Cheyenne posted of real buildings , tremendous reference . Thank you Gary for the advice about the travel lock , the real pitfall of the kit , to Bob Letterman who walked me through the Bob sponge square paint method for the balcony & for everyone else for encouragement & also for the inspiration in your own works .







The finished vehicle , note how I masked the area void of dust where the travel cover has been fitted to keep the vehicle relatively dust free . I used Lifecolor dust I & II and some pigments to finish. Well with the Marder finished it is time to finish the diorama so ............................

I proudly present for you ........................

THE OTHER , OTHER WHITE MILK !





The crew of the marder are just waiting for the water to boil for the coffee , one of the men enquires if they have any milk , the officer points out the alternate milk supply , innocently walking by , much to the amusement of the crew


Unsuspecting are they that Gary the goatherd is following the herd


Note I painted the white off the edge of the sign !





From this angle you can see that Gary the Goatherd is out of sight of Gertrude the goats potential assailant Shocked


Gary has a big stick too affraid


It sure would be nice to have some milk in my coffee Rolling Eyes




But what is this ? Shocked What a small world Very Happy ! Our dear friend Fritzi has her Beau serving in the DAK !!! Very Happy He laughs at his friend the goat molester but his heart is with his Fritzi I love you . Writing her name on the dust on the back of the Marder Very Happy




This one is for Gary , Crow poop for you Razz .



Well I hope you have enjoyed the build as much as I have . I really think the Monro Perdu backdrop is full of character , they are marvelous .

This is a great diorama in that it necessarily isn't about a gun crew. It could easily have been a race rally crew in place of the tank. The story, details, setting, look very good and work wonderfully to tell the tale.

Great job!

Fantastic diorama!

Everything is just so well done, good composition - many interesting details - the buildings give more character to the scene - excellent weathered vehicle and excellent painted figures!

As old Monty Burns would say eeeeexcelent.

I think it is just perfect. But boy does that guy have something coming if he thinks he can get anything from Gertude without a serious whoopin from Gary. lol!

And now we are lucky. We have Laura to go to for expert advice on early war German anything Very Happy . And now we have Jenny who we can all go to for " the straight poop " on everything else Rolling Eyes .
