Bill, thanks Sir . I can see your point in the larger scale area , might have to try that on my Panther turret bunker. As fro adding some old bits of paint, I don't really want too. This has been sitting around way too long in the elements to have anything left on the outside .
Dicky kind words indeed fella . As said there will be no paint on the outside, but I am trying to work out how to do some bird poo . Maybe Chris will put that ref pic up of his car from last years On-Track .
Ian, appreciated mucker . Just be patient with me on the base .
Carl, too kind mustache mushty .
Steve, thank you indeed esquire .
Started on the carpentry last night, staind it today . I also cut a a piece of wood into unregular shape and added the ground dirt too .
Chopping up the coffee stirrers . These are going to be the barn wall and roofing section.
Stained and propped up on the dirty base .
Bergepanzer parked up by the farmer and forgotten about .
Alex reminded me that vehicle may well have sunk into the deck after a few years , but I didn't want that on here so I had to find an alternative way of showing her .
Whilst wandering around Affligem in Belgium last year, to stingy to get a taxi from the station to the plastic and steel model show , I noticed many old buildings with cobblestone or bricked drives and even just paved bits leading into nothing .
So I guessed that this would be the way I shall show the vehicle Here's the cobbled track behind the barn, the perfick place to store a tank without it sinking into the ground .
The stones arrived today, so out they came and have been glued into place with copious amounts of Mig "sand and gravel" glue.
When set I'll get the ground built up around them with plaster and garden dirt, hopefully that'll be tomorrow .
I have also added some more paint to the barn wall, this needs a huge amount of work yet though .
Cheers Carl . They took about an hour and a pint to lay out , about 5 minutes to glue . Not to sure what they are made of, I think it's a light clay which hasn't been baked through. I shall defo get some more of these as they are really cool looking, also you can do what the heck you want with 'em
