Dear Mike, Lee, John and Scottie, thank you for all your support... the diorama is getting close to the end... still:

1. finish the PBR

2. add details (yes MORE details.... people know me as DETAIL GREG.... ) to the PBR and the pontoon like tires

3. painting the figures, total of 6 and a dog

4. painting the river bed and making the water...

i won't say that i'll do all of it this weekend but i'm getting close to the end.. since i'm eager to start the new CHOSIN RESERVOIR diorama.

Richard thank you again for your support and advice... i think i corrected the problem on the PRB with those wires...

stay tuned everyone more to come...

Hey Peter check this out..

.... why don't you try to build it... i don't think that would be super difficult.... and plus if you can use green stuff you can put the Italian ammo pouches

PETER.... Perfect tones... wonderful... I had a set of Italian paratrooper that was that same color... we still used them until the late 80s.

It would be soooo cool if you could find a MAB (Moschetto Automatico Beretta) instead of a StG44, many German officers and NCO loved that sub machine gun

Keep up the wonderful work

Hey John, for the gloss finish don't worry... the pigments will cover everything...if i can give you a suggestion do LAYERS of pigments.

Start with a very pale grey...then put "drops" of water to fix it ( you can even use a grey wash VERY diluted to do the job) then add some ocre yellow (repeat step "drops" ) and finsh with a very delicate touches of red bricks... then on the recess use some brown.

pigments will fix with the water and will go in the recess as naturally as you can imagine... if you are not happy with a tone add some more grey/red/yellow/brown...

you can even add a little bit of black to simulate fire or black smoke from a stove that fell on the ground/tank.

Hope it helps
