Tamiya Daimler Dingo Mk.II complete! : )

September 26 2016 at 5:32 AM

Here you have some images of my second shelf queen of this year after the Steyr Kommandeurwagen I finished some months ago. The truth is the Dingo was made one year ago and ignored since then waiting for inspiration to make a small scene. After seeing the Dingo boxed in my workbench for many months I took the resolution to make justice with this little nice model and complete her conveniently with the adidtion of figures and one small decorated base.

As for the figures, the Dingo driver comes from reworking the original Tamiya figure. The (German disguised of British) officer and the Beduin are two superb resin sculptures from Total War Miniatures., and the beautiful Camel is one fantastic resin piece by Red Zebra, and it adds the true exotic touch of the scene in my humble opinion.

That is all for now. This one counts my 5th 1/48th scale model this year and I hope will not be last. I hope you like it. happy.gif

Thanks for looking. wink.gif

Hi Lu, once again you have created a wonderful small scene that pulls the viewer into it with its details happy.gif

All the elements are complementary to one another , the subtle painting on the Dingo , the figures , camel and tree.

One observation if you can forgive me - IMHO the feet and tires of the figures and Dingo might benefit from a small application of dust. Dust gets everywhere and the feet and tires seem to be just a tad too clean. No biggie.. just an honest observation happy.gif

Well done once again Lu happy.gif

Best regards

I very much like your painting style. Restrained but with a lot of life.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful models. There is always so much to learn from close inspection.
But much more than that they are so nice to just enjoy happy.gif

Paul --> The over dusting-up is a good suggestion, Iam not sure how well I can fix that with the Dingo glued in position though... let´s see... wink.gif

Andrew --> The palm tree is one ordinary plastic item for Christmas nativity dioramas very popular here in Spain, I reworked a bit and painted carefully. I guess you can get something similar at your end. If not, then let me know and I can purchase a bunch of these for you next Christmas. happy.gif

Calvin --> I received some of those figures one year ago and TWM is still out there. Problem is Manel Arin is one busy guy, but please contact him via his homepage -->http://www.totalwarminiatures.com.

To all of you Gents, many thanks for having the time to look and write. I am glad you liked it. wink.gif
