Aha wondered about this one. Just to say that Mk III actually looks like it’s made of metal rather than plastic, mainly due to all the tone/colour variations – did you brush or air-brush? Might quibble about the shiney rubber on the wheels (unless they're representing wet?) but otherwise it’s a real gem

Back again with the next installment of wip on the Dragon Panzer 3
Still working on the weathering on the rear deck and scaling some areas back of being overweathered.
The images have been taken on the phone camera and don't come up as clear
Getting it all ready to be glued to the trailer, slow work but it's getting there.

I hear you Zsoft,

Being that I have been running the thread for so long I'm persisting to show the images and remove anything that relates to photobucket.

If I have the time to spend 4 years on a build then a few hours changing photo's can be absorbed in to the joys of plastic modelling.

Michael



Thank you.

That was painfull
Page 1 progress images restored in lieu of photobucket image logos



That's why I don't touch any former posts... armorama, planetarmor and my blog also "lost". But I simply don't have the time to go back and remove-restore all the pictures

Hi Ian,

I 'll try and keep this short but it won't be.One web page server had held my images for ransom wanting $400 a year to display my images. Which I cannot afford to pay.
By doing this they put a stop on all the images in this thread.

By doing that I downloaded all my images from the place I had them and relocated them to another server.

By going to another server I have to reload all my images back into each post. Not a quick thing to fix

This build blog is on 3 web pages.
Planet Armour, Armorama and Modellers alliance.
Soooo I have to redo 3 build blogs with the images.
Once I complete 1 it will be simple to cut and paste the others. I hope
Have commenced image replacement here.
http://planetarmor.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9007
When this is done it will be a timely cut and paste thing.

It sucks because there is around 240 images to insert.
I commenced the build in 2013

Very True Jerry,

Been like that on many occasions.

Nice! Thanks for posting. My bench is home made and much bigger but I have learned it doesn't matter how big the work space is. When I start working it is soon restricted to about 10 square inches of work space surrounded by chaos!

That is one awesome carrying case for sure but what gets me is your work desk! Wow!
Mine looks like the village dump all the time.

Thanks Mark

I appreciate your words.

I am currently waiting for a transport box to be built with the famo timber base at the builder's.There is only a small amount of work to be done to the Famo and remains on the backburner.

The diorama has now all my devotion and enthusiasm.

After some deliberation on what will be used on the diorama the decision has been made for the items below.Some may be omitted and there may be substitutes to present the right appearance.

The diorama will be a balancing act as to what looks too busy and what looks right.

There is way too much now to have this in the Famo blog and now it will have to be separated into it's own blog.

Hello,

Wow, finally finished the Riich Models German Field Kitchen.The field kitchen is no easy feat to put together.The parts are very fine and for a field kitchen it was a complex build.
The figures have been positioned around the field kitchen for trial purpose to see if it will work to create the diorama scene.

A combination of Tamiya and Riich field kitchens and figures have been used to create the scene. The plastic figures from both manufacturers have excelled in figure detail.


The scenario is to try and make 2 separate diorama's come together on the 1 diorama base. The intention for the viewer to be captivated with a view on each side of the diorama base.
The brick wall is the separator between the 2 diorama ideas.
The figures without heads will be changed out with resin replacements.

The shed doors on the front have been painted in Humbrol blue and highlights have been made with Mig Ammo wood and dark wash.

Thanks Jerry

Not sure if the famo and trailer are going to fit on this dio for the concept I have in mind.
It's been 20 years since building a large dio and at the moment this has taken all my attention because it's different.

The challenge of this diorama is to tell a story in each area and hopefully tell the 1 big story

I have been following along but haven't commented lately and I have to say a lot is happening here ! For one thing,this turned out to be a huge dio!
You have picked a lot of good stuff to go in here and it is really coming together nicely now.
