Have a great day Alain!

Oh my gosh !!! You are very very good. They look fantastic. I'm so impressed. Have some in plastic that came with a Tamiya kit. I think they are 6 or 8 ... you give me the motivation to try ... they will be my first one. If you can give me some tips or references on Youtube tutorials it only can help me. Have saw some tutorials from Shane Smyth on youtube... I saved them for later. Congratulations and thank you so much for sharing your pictures. Have a nice afternoon.

Well yeah, I think I can. I'm the figure moderator lol.

I have some few tutorials in the figure painting section below, but I have a hard time getting my thoughts into proper tutorials that make sense. There are links to videos which helped me there as well.

I can answer questions and I can guide you. But I work best one on one lol. I doubt that's an option for us lol.

I have only one friend who loves figure painting and she already knew the basics of blocking and washes. I showed her a few tricks so far and her results were much improved and she got quite the overwhelming response on Facebook.

So I know I can help you. Even if it's limited by distance, I'll do my best.

I used to hate painting figures. But something changed when I started thinking of them as tank accessories lol.

A lot of tutorials and loads of practice later and I can produce not only a well painted figure, but expressions on their faces.

Ho yes Ted you are right ! Michael's figures are very nice ... just discover he is the figure moderator... I didn't knew before he told me yesterday. Ted you could be the Sci-Fi moderator... your work on the Star-Trek space ships are incredible as well as the Batman cars. Did you build something related with Star Wars ? I'm definitely going to take a closer look at both of you and Michael work before I subscribed last year. So fascinating !!! Wish you a good evening in the US over there.

Thanks Alain,

I've done several post apocalyptic type builds, the batman stuff, and the Star Trek Klingon kit, but no star wars kits. I have two other star trek kits in the stash. One day.....someday?

I'll never forget your foray into armour, Ted. http://genessis-models.websitetoolbox.com/post/tamiya-135-sturmtiger-assault-mortar-7019620?pid=1294096198
That Sturmtiger is still a legend in my book!

Thank you Michael. I have several more armor kits in my stash. Hope to get back to one in the near future.

Well that would be great! Just watch out for Braille scale. Lol

With the success of these Panthers, I pulled out an old 70's era Fujimi double diorama set in 1/76 scale. It has a Matilda MkIII and a 88mm German flak cannon, troops for both factions, diorama base and accessories. Stunning artwork I will keep even if the box is beat up.

I started with the Matilda, of course. Parts are a bit out of scale. I've already removed the fenders from the upper hull and added my own. There was also a huge gap in the frontal armour I filled with sheet styrene. I'd guess about a 1.5mm gap between hull halves. Decals look like they won't be helpful, but I'll give them a try first. Sometimes old decals work out.

The really cool part is this set comes with building instructions to make trees and palms for your Desert Duel dioramas.

Lots of tiny men, doing tiny things!

So yeah, watch out for that Braille scale, Ted! It can suck you in! Lol

I don't think that Matilda stands a chance against that 88 though.

What about 1/144? Recently saw some builds they refer to as “finger builds”. All scratch built ships no longer than your finger. Made my head and eyes hurt.
