Hi to all 48 lovers.

My 251 is finally finished and ready to paint. I always wanted to build a small Russian village hause. This time I was not lazy and build a small corner...A fence and a dog house...

Im planing to add a few things more..Especially behind the fence and left side of the side. At this point, I need some help about what to add there..Any comments please?????

Mmmmm ..... great building!

The house is awesome, once painted will be impressive. Also the Sdkfz will be a nice one. May be just the Tamiya´s figures are the weakest part. Unfortunately, in 1/48 scale we still do not have many good figures for our dioramas .... what a shame!

Now, paint it!! happy.gif

Thanks for the comment jose. Its pleasure to hear it. Im planing to paint it very colorful. I hope, as you say, it will look better after painted..

Actually I wanted to add a few civil figures to add more life to my work..but unfortunately as you mentioned in this scale we dont many options...

I will prepare a few small things more to increase appearance. Hopefully I start painting weekend...

Suggestions

How about a clothes pole with the lines on the ground? Or a Teter-totter angled in the backyard, maybe broken?? Red Zebra does a great young boy- hands in pocket...put him half hidden behind the house...sneaking a look at the Germans from the backyard......?? Maybe cut and tip his head a bit like you do as you look around a corner..
HTH, Dave

More Ideas

Your house looks great Sancar, but for some after action atmosphere, how about Putting a solid shot hole through it (solid AP doesn't explode, it just zips through soft targets like this) - placed like it was not intentionally fired at the building, just collateral damage from a miss - like a through and through in the the upper corner. The entry would be fairly round and gun caliber sized - the exit would be a bit blown out and 2 or 3 caliber diameters. Maybe a 5cm round from a Pz. III ?

Also, what about an empty Russian helmet (maybe with a bullet hole in it) as the focal point of discussion for your Panzer Grenadiers?
