    Are you sure they are not box art? They sure look like that. If not, they are simply amazing.

    Thanks for your replies. I'm glad you liked the figures. Smile
    By the way, this is a tree I have made for the base.

    Do not tell me you ended gluing leaves one by one !?!!! What did you use white glue?

    The detail is like seeing a miniature bonsai ... awesome mate, I have seen what you have done on the twigs used to camo your PanzerIV but this is far another job!

    Inspiring!

    Yes, I tell you Smile
    Yes, they were glued with white glue, one by one, a fantastic exercise for emptying oneself's mind. You end with plain encephalogram after each session. drunken

    I did that for the tree i put near my Bf109 and they were the same type of leaves but i did not have half as many, not even a quarter...... Thing is, congratulations for still being sane after an exercise like that and it looks really great.

    Very nice realistic tree!!

    Unfortunatly the only way to glue leaves is one-by-one.......... when will they invent a tree that grows it's own leaves! Very Happy

    Great job on the Sherman, it looks so realistic as do the figures. That tree is unbelievable! I have loved model railroading my whole life and they do lots of trees, but I have never seen one so realistic before. Took quite a while before my jaw came off the ground.

    Awesome and Inspiring work!!!!!!!

    To have 12 figures in a single dio is breathtaking IMHO but to have 12 masterfully painted/composed figures in a single dio is just out of this world again IMHO Twisted Evil

    totally agree with you but might i add its not the quantity or to a lesser extent the quality it is much more the context in which they are placed. combine quality, quantity and context and you will end up with this
    A MASTERPEICE

    Many Thanks!

    I really appreciate your comments Very Happy

    About the figures... err, there are 14 Wink They are OK, but there is still a long way to go. My "problem" is that I have here in Spain meny friends that are so good figure painters... (I am too envious Wink)

    About next projects, I have two things ready for painting, a 1/48 Tamiya Panther and a 1/35 GWH "sWS Uhu". I think the Panther will be next.

    Once more, many thanks!

    i am more than sure that you will do an excellent job of both. will the panther have any figures, not many 1/48 figures to choose from

    Looking good already, very nice detailed and neat construction. the tank is beautiful and the barrel is really nice. Looking forward to seeing them painted.

    Hola amigo!
    Already look promising, yet I have not been birtten by 1/48 bug but they really look tempting!
    The UHU looks quite a trouble free model, ala Tamiya ... was it a troublefree built? An interesting vehicle for weathering, apart quite big aswell! Looking forward for the finished items!
