1/35 diorama "When will they invent a Sat Nav"

Posted by gerry7944 on 13 Jun 2017, 16:31

This is a 1/35 diorama using the Italeri Opel Blitz and motorbike kits.

The figures are a mixture of Esci, Verlinden, Italeri, and Tamiya.

They have been painted using Vallejo paints.

The base is a picture frame and various static grass, and Woodland scenics materials have been used.

This was an early attempt on my return to the hobbt about twelve years ago.

Cheers

Gerry

Great work. Love the pea-dot pattern. When you returned to the hobby 12 years ago, where did you return from? The work on display in this thread is a the product of a mature and skilled painter and diaromist.

Thanks for that.

Your kind words are very much appreciated.

I dabbled with models as a boy but lack of funds, a career, then marriage, and a family just got in the way.

I retired 12 years ago and found I had time on my hands and just floated back into doing models the way I wished I could have done them back in the day.

Of course there is a greater choice now of not only models but paints and modelling products .

I still love trying to cobble together something on a small budget and finding ways to make things look realistic on the cheap.

It's the old thing of "wish I had known then what I know now" and of course having a bit more disposable income at hand also helps.

Cheers

"When will they invent a Sat Nav"
Stick to the map it's safer.

The question now is when will they invent a sat nav that is reliable.
Modern sequence ; turn on sat nav - disconnect brain and rely on sat nav - stop and ask a local where you are - or; turn on sat nav - disconnect brain and rely on sat nav - phone for a tow truck to get you out of the river - or.......................
