Thanks!

Haven't thought about that, my original idea was to just let it be rusty metal as if the car was caught on fire during a bomb raid and then just sat on the street during the winter and spring.

But maybe you gave me an idea...

Thanks for all the positive comments!

No pictures since I didn't make much progress tonight. I've sanded the last spots on the building so it's now ready for primer. Also cut off the other door, hood and boot of the beetle, felt like a good idea but now I'm starting to fear that my scratch building won't be good enough, we'll see.

I spent most time organizing my bench, with all the kits and different ideas it was turning in to a battlefield of its own. I'm soo eager to get some paint on the tank and base but I will try to focus on the beetle for now.

Maybe I should get some figures assembled too before I start painting so I can get the "scene" all figured out.

Decisions decisions decisions! good to think tank everything over and over though. That's when you get the ahhh haa moments. Consider making the beetle looked as if its been opened up and scavenged if you get in too deep with details. I am sure parts were stolen off anything and everything during the war. right? just a fall back idea??? you will do fine.

Yeah that's one of the reasons why I decided to include a car and to open it up, on nearly every photo you see from the battle of Berlin there seems to be burnt out, rusty vehicles and they are never complete, always missing hoods or doors or wheels or such.

Thanks for your positive comment, sure made it easier to get started with the scratch building!! [thumb]

No pictures yesterday, so here comes many to make it up [smile]

I had quite a lot of free time today so I really made some progress with the chassis and interior.

Built both the seats and the backseat. Scratched and bashed an engine compartment with an engine and the front space with a petrol tank. Also turned the front wheels and altered the suspension. Put on some Cellu-Clay to hopefully mimic burnt material.









And with the body:



I will add details to the inside of the body and the doors. Probably will add some dents to the body as well. 

Thanks for watching!

As planned I've worked on the body of the beetle today, pulled out my new favorite tool again...the solder iron. Made some kind of interior framework on the doors.

With the help of some Blu-tack I've positioned the parts as I think I will place them.



Also started to put some of the figures together, most of them will be in the original pose but a few needs a little more work repositioning.

Have assembled the figures, they need a lot more work, but I really wanted to put them on the base to see if I could get near the scene I have in my mind.

After just putting them on the "thing" it looks like this. Probably will move them around quite a lot and some of them maybe will have to go. But to get you an idea: (soory for the dark pics)









I've always found the painting stage most joyful, and I will get my share deal of that stage. When looking at this I know how I will spend my autumn evenings...painting [biggrin]
