Hi Jim,

A great looking dio already, superb grass and the sandbags are very nice.thumbs up

The colour and weathering of the crates is very nice too.teeth 2

You’ll surely reach the finish line with this one, looking forward to see its completion.

An outstanding base. Lots of detail making it very life like. Look forward to seeing the gun in place. Well done sir

Jim,

​Looking good mate, as the others have said the sandbags look very good and a nice touch with the support stakes.

Jim,

Had a very enjoyable catch up over a few pages , Wow mate this has moved ever onwards and certainly upwards since last i looked in thumbs up. Things looking brilliant sir , your great work on the Bofors has been enhanced by the AM products ,resin casting and Fimo sculpting but especially your small scale figure work wink 2. Finished diorama will look stunning mefinks star. Always on the lookout for a good new product , so tell me where do you buy Sort of Brass paint face 20.

John.

Hi all

Thanks for all your such kind comments. As others have said so often this forum is all about help and encouragement and your support really does keep up my mojo.

Wouter - for the grass I use one of those cheap static grass applicators. It doesn't really work very well but sprinkling the grass through the sieve helps it to fall nicely. I intend to buy a proper applicator but they are pretty pricey.

Anyway I am calling this one done. As I do with all my models I will let it sit for a week and then come back and tweak it.

So my effort for the AA group build 2017 smile
