    Post  iCocker on Mon Mar 26, 2012 10:28 pm

    So here is the start of the joint project ... updating the ZIS5 russian truck, basically a decent kit but needs some TLC, thinning the extra thick mudguards, adding interior cabin detail [which was wood] with plastic card, adding texture to wooden areas, wheels resin by Hussar... etc etc ...










    The test flight ...

    The Making of......

    Well done Ivan,

    A good job indeed. Apart from the fact that the scene represents history in the true sense, as it is backed up by a wartime photograph. These type of small dioramas, recreating this type of scenario, are not common. So to see this beauty ready will be a true sensation.

    Prosit brother.

    Thank you guys ... the aircraft for the time being is the old revell option which shall be swopped with Joseph's masterpiece.

    Will start having the cabin interior paintedready first before proceeding to the complex job of all ... adding the detailing and converting figures. From the image claerly show that the soldiers just behind the cabin most are standing on something high, probably some boxes or wood that are just under the 109 nose, so we have to do some artistic license here ... so far that's it ... will follow up soon with the cabin process and driver ...

    Great work so far Ivan. It's gonna look brilliant finished Very Happy

    Any Ideas about a name for the scene?

    "Dasvidaniya Luftwaffe?"

    "The Robin" (bird with a red chest tongue )

    "Balancing Act", "Balancing Out", "Restoring Balance"

    "Final Migration"

    ...

    Unfortunately you are right,

    And it all the 6 footer's fault. If he did not re route the Panzer Divisions towards the Caucasus Oil Fields,We would have gave some lessons to the Ruskies as how to swim across the Volga. Adding insult to injury - the other damaged brain (Himmler) issued an order to treat the Russion polulation as sub humans. Now how can you treat an ultra nationalist population as sub-humans.

    I guess this is something that I will never understand. We had the population on our side, as they were fed up of Stalin and his bullying.

    Anyhow, the rest is history now.

    Shocked I admire the Germans for their engineering prowess and technological advances during the war but I'm sure glad they never won it. Not that Uncle Joseph was any better than Uncle Adolf but still...

    That's enough Hijacking... back to the Diorama What a Face
