Good work on this Hasegawa kit! :yeah:

Out of curiosity, which manufacturers gun barrel did you add & which tyres do you intend to use (if using after-market ones)?

Happy modelling!

Thanks

The gun barrel is a RB Model référence.

For the tires, I will use those of the kit that I consider sufficient. In addition, there are two different engraving patterns. And especially, my diorama being located in the Ardennes, the ground will be muddy and therefore, the tires too.

This Puma is starting to look real. Super modelling.

Small advance, the scenery is planted, the vehicles are soon finished and the actors begin to dress.

Those figures are extremely well done. Tanks, buildings and terrain are quite nice, too.

This in my opinion is a very nice scene with super modelling skills on display.

The vehicles and soldiers are superb.

Personally, as the weather was terrible, I would have splashed everyone in mud and filth.

However that's because I am a mucky devil. Those vehicles look real!

Best wishes,

Top notch.

A small detail.
The gate.
Get his best days behind. Yes it look like there was paint on it, earlier.
And a small gap to spy is included. :mrgreen:
It cover the side wall of the small barn.
Open in a huge angle and will be overseen in the first impression by the three vehicle.
But such smaller things bring a lot of realism into a Dio.
Like the cross on the white base.

And the name plate of the Dio is too well made.

:yeah:

That gate is excellent. The buildings, paintwork on the vehicles and figures clothing are all very authentic looking. And the wet ground looks great.

Very nice piece.

Great dio and nicely painted figures, which make the dio even greater. Let me be picky though: muddy soil, but no sign of mud on vehicles and uniforms
