That's a nice tip! I have always wanted to do a crash airplane dio but never want to risk it (well, I've had a few ... humm ... accidents).

It does look stunning though.

Edit: BTW the workable tracks look really good ... bowing to your patience [tongue]

Great start Daniel,

Nice layout you have for the diorama and the metal tracks are just stellar. Those dings and dents you have added with the soldering iron look perfect too mate

With the tank almost ready for paint I switched my attention to the beetle. Since I wants it to be burnt out I thought I had to do some modifications.

First up, can't have rubber left on those wheels, so hacked, sawed and sanded....wish I had one of those Dremels...



Opened up one door and cut out the door panels, will add some more details to the door later



Tried to undress the seats, they look very crude but I reckon that with some paint, rust and soot they will look ok.



Last update for a couple of days, going out of town so no modelling until Tuesday [bawl]

Thanks for looking

Cheers!!

They sure did...in the end [biggrin]

No seriously they are not very difficult to assemble just tedious.

I'm back home, and manage to get some time at the bench

Since the base is very flexible I had to fill the high points in some way, I choosed Cellu-Clay. Worked fine but took forever to dry. When it finally dried I could continue and glue it to the blue-foam.

Here's a pic of how the base looks at the moment. Added a frame but my wood working skills are kind of non-existent, but anyway I think it will add to the overall result. Some masking and it will be ready for paint.



Glued the window frames in place, the fit was terrible, they were about 1mm too small so I had to add strips of styrene to make them fit.



I didn't feel too happy about the seats so I had a look at some references and revisited them, only made one so far but I'm feeling much better about this result.




Thanks for watching!
