    The making of ...

    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"

    ...

    Wayne, that same Ronnie the Robin is at the Club in the showcase lol!

    Joking apart, "Balancing Act" opens up a lot of doors vis a vis the interaction of the figures with the 109 IMHO what do you think Ivan Idea Question
