There has been quite a bit of progress that has gone unreported.
As far as I am concerned, everything is going Ok,
the tank has got to this stage, and there are a few bits and pieces still to add to finish it off, but I intend to wait until the scene is set and base work is all done before adding those bits and weathering it.
the lmen had a dab of paint, as a base, but will given how I now plan to utilise them, have to have some corrective work and limb reposing
The base board and scene/setting ... I want to keep an element of surprise in what I doing with this, until the final reveal, but it is all going to be set on an A4-sort of sized dinner plate table mat, so it is not too big for you to transport... and I have carefully taken a couple of shots but not revealed everything done so far.
I took it as my WIP to local club night this week and amazed everyone with what I had achieved, once they knew just what I had really used to achieve it.
The bit of dead branch in the foreground of the second photo will more than likely still be incorporated in the final scene, I am still working on and chopping up the larger piece in first image, but the ground covering on base setting is mostly done, and some other foliage stuff you (purposely) cant see is all fixed.
I shall be back on this again in a week or six, once my Westland helicopter production line is over .. but fear not, it will be all done in good time
