    bcauchi wrote:Thanks again for your comments. Ivan, the idea is that it would have been raining prior to the scene. Both the people in the area and the aircraft are dry. I have particular areas in the soil which have puddles but these do not show up unfortunately. However, the rest of the soil does look a bit too dry and needs some idea of humidity although not soggy wet. so i will take care of that by the time i get it to the club. The tyres have dry soil on them but no mud. This is the first time for me to portray something on a wet ground so i welcome your comments. I will try to fix anything that is still fixable. By the way, i love the figures by masterbox, they are so versatile and they have some really nice adeas!

    Brian if you work glazes of thinned oil paints [vandyke brown, burnt umber] come to mind would unit the idea of damp soil more, but control it not to over do ... re the wheels more then mud I think dampness might be ideal IMHO, I am presuming the aircraft landed [taxid] on a concrete runway so probably wet tyres might be more appropriate ... I guess!

    Masterbox [have you seen the Luftwaffe officer with dog and ladies?] have some great ideas, also check MiniArt, they are coming up with more civilians and also a nice setup of DAK crew all bare chested and with Bombayhats, ideal for any Desert/Sicilian scene ...

    Marco you are right but i did them both together. The plane was finished with the other one, i was only working on the base. I find it hard to fix now, i will try but that cone is superglued in place. I will find a way, i hate knowing that something is not right but it is going to be difficult because even the rigging is superglued. i definitely need to fix it. What an idiot i am, it is so reasonably obvious that it would be installed that way but i was sure i saw it in a photo facing the other side.

    Don't be too hard on yourself Brian. Its just one itsy bitsy flaw in an otherwise amazing job.

    Make sure that it can be fixed before attempting anything.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Thanks everyone, Marco, you did not upset me at all. On the contrary, i wish i had that photo before and i will definitely try to fix it. I am not happy knowing that something is wrong. You know me, i like to be as accurate as possible.

    I have taken all the tips including those of Ivan and yesterday gave an oil wash to the soil, it looks better and also 'wet' the tyres. That is why we see each other's work, to note these things. If one is not capable of accepting constructive criticism, one can never learn and produce better results. With evey model we build, there is a learning process. We never know enough....the perfect model DOES NOT EXIST!

    That is the spirit of a true SSM brother knight! That is the ingredient why we share our work and persist in realism ... keep them coming Brian. Personally I admire you for taking such a project and keep the track from start to finish. It is a great challenge already correcting the bird and bringing it up to realism and then keeping the same output with painting and weathering and still persisting in finally tie everything into a diorama I only say ... hats off my friend! PROSIT for such a challenge, not easy to achieve!

    Brian that's more excellent work.Always a pleasure to watch the progress of your builds.Myself,I've been busy working on my 1970 Plymouth...the model bench is in the garage but the allure of that old car has been too much for me to break away from it and spend time on my 190 A-3 conversion.I'll get back to the bench eventually but with the weather turning for the better (and a new set of tires/wheels) and my need to leave a massive carbon footprint the bench will have to wait until next fall...what's planned for your next build?

    Good work Brian, Very Happy

    It's always a pleasure to see your work. The ground work is superb, and the figure nicely placed in, depicting a normal scene relating to some relaxed moments during a well earned break.

    good one Brian - Prosit Habib.

    cheers cheers cheers

Do visit and let us hear from you. you can post some pics on the forum of the work you are doing on the car. I am sure everyone would love to see it. cheers for now.

    Hi Brian! You have been to my modeling what Yoda had been to Luke Skywalkers Jedi Knight thing and I thank you once again for all the help and inspiration you've given me through the years.

    Brian this is my 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner,383 cu.in. pistol grip 4 speed.Just under 65,000 original miles on it.When I brought it home a year ago last March it had 59,800 miles on it.My buddy had the car for 15 years and put 3000 miles on it in that time...I've driven more in one year than he did in 15.No computer,no fuel injection,AM radio,manual brakes,was four wheel drums but i put a set of 72 Challenger discs up front so I can actually stop now.I've waited 45 years for this and it's a blast.The only rain this car will see is from a hose...hope you don't mind me putting a few pics up...

    Wow Dave, course i don;t mind, what a great looking car. You have restored it to a brilliant state and it looks really powerful and crying out to be driven, and driven hard. I'm sure that you oblige, thanks for putting up the photos, it is great to see why you have been absent for such a long time. I think that it was worth working on the full scale project. I hope that you get lots of satisfaction and fun riding this magnificent machine.
