Come on, that's a little bit ahead, the sidecar is almost finished now. Another one or two equipment to installin the side.

And here are some figurines of the future diorama.
They are made of odds and ends with Caesar, Preiser, Dragon, resin copy parts.
The additions in white are made in Milliput to fill the gaps or redraw the folds.
I still have the biker to do but I still do not have much idea on how to represent it.
I have to put a tanker in the open hatch of the body and another in turret

I will probably also add one or two other infantrymen in the background, and walking towards the tank if the final composition of the diorama allows it.

Well done as all your work I know of.

If the Preiser figure do not suit well for you,
a small brain storming support:

A little modified MIG figure. Headgear ( with glasses fixed on the helmet) is by Preiser.

Thanks Wiking.

In fact, my choice is not yet made for the figure of the biker because I would not like to represent it with the big long coat of bikers but rather a winter outfit "classic" since it is a SS unit.
And I wonder how could really be dressed these bikers when he did not wear these long coats.

Zundapp is 90% done now
I am extremely disappointed, my painting does not pay tribute to the job done.
The macro photo does not forgive anything, it still makes better in real.
I wonder if I will not redo everything.

Unfortunately, the camera unlike the eye doesn't compensate the perceived view as I know only too well.

However, I for one think that you have attained a marvellous result here, especially when you consider the small nature of the subject.

Whilst faces can be engraved on a grain of rice etc it must surely be the 'feel' of the thing that counts. Tank crews and vehicle technicians did not go for graceful camouflage schemes when given a paint pot, brush and diesel fuel for thinners.

Bravo to you. Looking forward to seeing your mark five.

Best wishes,

Chris

Don`t be worry !

Funny. Exactly the same with me as I finished my one.
But maybe it is the vehicle itself. No big areas. So the line green and brown brake all lines of the vehicle?

Yes, I can imagine it is difficult to paint such a small and complex vehicle. And the camera is unforgiving. Still it looks very nice.
