Thanks Steve, apologies for not coming back on the paint used for the stone work.

I used was Tamiya Olive Drab, Black Green, Red Brown and Deck Tan wash down with diluted Khaki Drab and Nato Black.

I'm still tinkering with the weapon belts making them with tin foil and thin fuse wire...I haven't attached them and still twisting to get the droop right.



Thanks for looking.

Richard .

Just catching up, some great colors on the stone work, those straps are looking good. Have you ever tried pewter srip like the Master aka Simon ?

Hi John, thanks.

Haven't tried that medium...although our country is famous for Selangor Pewter, just can't find sheets of it in hardware stores.

The stuff I use is tin foil from powdered milk or Milo cans. They're thicker than the baking foils and thinner than toothpaste tubing foil and has just the right pliability and stiffness.

Still chugging along with the base. I've varied the style of the mortar opting with a lighter shade to bring out the stones.

The figures have their base tones on and secure to their individual home made paint holders ala clothe pegs for painting in the detail and highlighting.wink 2


The base received first sprinkle of rubble stone and sand secured with white glue. I will later paint in the weathering streaks for each stone on the wall and stain others on the ground.

I will add some moss and lightly fill in creepers. The rubble will continue along the stair case. I may apply a dark wash to accentuate the lines. Some dusting will be added later to blend the figures to the base.

I haven't done this for a while so there will be a few layers of staining until I'm comfortable with the look. Thanks for staying with this slow process as many of you have at least finished some three builds since I started.face 20

Hi Tim,

Thanks...good to have you follow this. Notice I've cleared my work area?...just couldn't work with all the mess and noticed my slow progress was a result of it. Nothing like starting on a new slate so to speak.

Just got my glass case and it fits snugly in. While waiting for more of the rubble to cure I tinkered with my Harry Tate dio and airbrushed a bit more weathering to the wings...just a little sprucing up since it's going to Shizuoka as well.

Photos of the two up next.
