The groundwork on the base is looking fantastic Jason and all the little details are coming together now. Those photo etch tools are amazing and they must be tiny in 1/48 too !
Keep it up buddy, this diorama is going to be superb I can't wait to see the finished article

Just a little work done the last couple nights, mainly sorting out the tie down system, gluing in some vegetation and spreading parts around.

I had a little fun with Photoshop, I finally got a space cleared out to dedicate to taking good photos (vs my Galaxy S4 on the workbench). I had found an inexpensive 3 lamp lighting kit on amazon last week and pulled the trigger. I dug my ANCIENT 30lb Bogen tripod out of storage only to find that the mounting plate had disappeared in one of my 4 moves in the last 6 years...so Amazon to the rescue again, new plate came today and I took some test shots.

Then I decided to have some fun and see how many of the PS skills I picked up 10 years ago have remained. This is only 10 minutes work...like I said quick and ugly but gives you an idea of what the desert around Tucson looks like. I would need to take a photo with this perspective in mind then adjust lots of things to make these match and not look edited so please, don't look too closely [smile]

Thanks everyone! I'm really having fun and am a bit sad that I am almost to the end of this project, it's my first GB and I've so enjoyed building along with all of you.

I'm just wrapping up some details and realized I have not pointed out some steps I took along the way...

Front landing gear has been removed some time ago, slowly being covered by mud and blowing dust. I dug out a bit of the base for it to settle into then placed some loose earth mixture into the hole. I placed the gear and pressed it into the soft dirt then reglued with thinned white glue. I beg you, forgive the poor focus:
[20140914_211907_zpsqgx7pdpz] 

All AC in the boneyard are tied down, and remain so if they still have their wheels on the ground. (to varying effect, about a month ago a monster monsoon came thru and flipped a couple of F-16's on top of each other) here is a pic of that mess:
[BsjBL_rCYAAuxoe] 
I duplicated this by gluing on a part onto the fuselage from my spares box, and building a tie down from a piece of wire. That was glued in place, painted and a piece of EZ line strung in between.
[20140914_211404_zps23bv1yss] 
Once an AC arrives at the facility fuel is drained and the tanks filled with protective oil, here something has happened to the seal on this tank and is being attended to. Brown artist oil thinned with turpentine, hopefully this will stay wet looking. I have since painted the lead wire and it's drying as I type:

Here is the toolbox all buttoned up, I just picked a few tools from the eduard kit and laid them in here, so I can repurpose in the future...

Tailgate cables on the Hummer, bed chipping, and the second toolbox
[20140914_211938_zpsc0fdbu6o] 

Aside from some minor touchups and moving some small things around this is done...remembering what a wise man here (or was it Ted? j/k [smile]) once said, the enemy of good is better...

Barring any catastrophic cock-ups or my 3 year old (here she is helping Daddy remove some wash)

finding the hiding place I probably will be posting in the reveal section on my next cycle of days off!!!



Thanks for looking.

All the details look amazing ! The chipping in the back of the Hummer looks very authentic, I'm really looking forward to seeing the final reveal of this one, it's been a great build diary full of some great scratch building and awesome attention to detail

My kids are big enough to know not to mess with Dad's models, but that hasn't stopped my wife's kitten from knocking things off my desk or chewing on my Zero lol.

This competition is getting pretty stiff. So many amazing ideas to be seen. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I may join the next GB and compete with you guys.

Looking fantastic!

Incredible details Jason I thought I was looking at an actual Bone yard bird until I read your text, the weathering and ground work are incredibly realistic. First class mate,
Best wishes
Gary

Jason this is great work. Much like evryone else I couldn't tell if I was looking at something real or modelled and painted by you.

Astounding weathering and scratchbuilding. Well done.

Not much else going on with the Phantom, getting the reveal photos sorted...

My figures were not right at all, to the point of standing out in the reveal shots. The problem was that I did not have any flesh tones, just beiges. Off to the Games Workshop I went this week and gave Burrito Truck man and Ralph their color back, no longer extras from Walking Dead!.

Much better...
