After many months of threatening to finish of the Mammut and it's dio base,I think I can now
call it all done,thanks to a few weeks of holidays and lots of spare time to clear away a few
old projects.I hope you all like the results,I for one are pleased with how it all turned out.
As always all comments and suggestions greatfully recieved.
Now to finish the Tamiya GB Stuh dio and then off to start a new project.
Regards to all.
The Mammut is one of the twelve models of the year to me undoubtedly. In my honest opinion everything on this escene is done very well, the model, the building, the scene layout accesories and figures. Well me and many others have been following your work for years but this year you are aniling all your works (read Firefly, Mammut, Stug, Tilly, etc...). You are one true quarter scale master amigo.
All my respects and admiration to you for your originality, hard work and excellent output.
I love the elegance of the whole scene, and I dunno about everyone else, but I dont think a dio is complete with out leaves on it.
Whom makes the building or is it scratchbuilt?
I am in the process of doing some for my GB build now, and am using some Slaters Plastikard for the brick/stone patterns.But I like that building so if it's a kit I want it.
Thanks for the kind words, as for the building, it's scrachbuilt using "Wills" railway
plastic sheet. The bricks are slightly underscale for 1/48 but IMO still quite useable,I think your eye see's bricks and mortar and your brain adjusts sizes to suit. The tile roof sections and the cobblestone sections scale up nicely. I think they are a UK product you should be able to
google up a supplier near you. As for the other details the footpath is from Verlimden,the gutters
downpipes,sills,barges,infills,door runner and support is all Evergreen plastics. And the door
is from the Tamiya road sign set.
Thanks for your kind words, I'm very pleased to have made your day.
I feel very humbled to recieve all this high praise from all you guy's who
I regard as my modelling "Heros"
Best regards to you.
Thanks for the encouragement,it's much appreciated,but you won't hear me chant aussie,aussie,aussie;)......I just feel so humbled,not to mention a little stunned to
the reaction of my "Mammut".
Thanks again mate.
Thanks for your recognition and kind words.As for the tarps......just the oooold kleenex facial tissue trick.Cut to size,painted with heavily thinned Tamiya XF49 and while still wet,stippled
lightly with XF51,and while still damp drapped over the subject and pushed and prodded into
a pleasing shape then left to dry. What you see Ralph is the final result, no further touch up
or added colour required!
Thanks alot for your kind words of encouragement,I had alot of fun with this project
and I'm so happy that my fellow modellers have take a few minutes of their time
to commment so positively on the "Mammut"
Cheers my friend.
