    East Prussia - Last Defenses!

    This is my latest diorama. I had comments about the figures being too clean so I'll blend them more into the base.

    Well done Noel.

    A question if you pls. The tires shouldn't be more weathered compared to whole scenery? They look very "brand new" for this heavy weathered AFV.

    Alex el Greco,

    I think Noel will weather the wheels together with the figures because I agree with you they look "very brand new" in pristine condition........I think he's not finished this one yet Suspect so we'll wait for his response Suspect

    I weathered the wheels like this:










    I wanted to show the vehicle had been going through fresh snow so only the side walls of the wheels are slightly muddy. Maybe they don't show much in the pictures.... but they are weathered... I promise Very Happy

    Hi Noel,
    That's much better! I think pictures do not "boost" your model! Try for better images as soon as your build is finished! It worths a lot, and deserves the best mate! cheers

    Thank you all for your kind comments!

    What exactly is that blue and white stuff??

    It's a two part silicone purchased from a hobby shop. It is used to make moulds. Mix two amounts of the same size together and press it onto the object you want to make copies of. I used it for masking because it comes away very easy.

    Regards
