Jason, a great idea for a modern day diorama, the "mashed potato" title is ace. The groundwork etc looks so realistic. The loader seems to be looking at something, but, what is it meant to be he's focussing on? Maybe turn him a bit so he's facing the angry frau?
Thanks for displaying your work. You have executed all your elements with great skill. It's great to see someone model our Forces so well. Great work, and look forward to your next project.
It was a fun project and I appreciate your comments. I tend to tweak alls dios shortly after completion and this one is no different.
The dirt in the field is in fact dirt. I used good old top soil and sifted it and then threw it into a small electric food processor to grind it up even more.
I will be adding more farm stuff to the left foreground portion of the base as I have turned the turret so the main gun now faces forward. This was my intent all along but the traversed turret looked good....but the loader figure was intended to be looking back along the hull at the damage created in the field....thus creating more interaction with the miffed Fräulein.
I'll take more pics soon once the additional details are added.
Love the Cent trashing the spud field in Germany!!!!.Just wondering if some of your fellow tankers did this in your leopards maybe??.It was hilarious seeing the rantings on Armorama regarding the new Kintetic M109a2 kit!!.Im happy just to get a better detailed kit rather than the old Italeri kits.Am wondering how well the Kinetic kit would do for a Canadian M109a4?.Ive got a Revell german m109 with the Diehl tracks so maybe it could mean a barrel swap to make a Norwegian version.Anymore leos pending??.
All the best from Richard
