Hi all,

So, this is my first post at this forum. Hope to see and learn a lot of you guys!
I hope I can still join the GP since I already start on the build and paint of both models. I just started doing some accessories for the diorama I am planning to build.
Just let me know if its OK to join in or not!

So, whats the plan...

I am planning to build a small dio with a Willy Jeep (Tamiya kit) and Harley Davidson (Miniart). Including some figures by the great Verlinden.

Dio is set in Normandy in summer 44 (I hope)...

A few of the parts so far...

Willy

And the Harley

Next step is to make some stowage for the Willy. Will keep you updated on the progress.

Any feedback is appreciated!

Just put the stowage together on the Willy. Used green stuff for the tarp and so far really happy about it. Now I hope I can find a way to properly paint it 😉

Remy,

that is some nice work! I think you can join the GB but to win anything you must start with new kits/parts. You can't begin with models you have already built, painted in any stage. Sorry.
check the rules for the GB. Thanks and best wishes.

Hi Ted, thanx for the feedback. I did check the rules but I thought in his latest vlog it was mentioned that you could still join even if you already started or finished a model. But my mistake, I think i misunderstood that part.

I will keep u guys updated on the progress anyway. Is that OK?.

I might start another model though for entry in the competition. Got an unbuild T55 and I am thinking of a Syrian based dio.

No problem IMHO. I’m not an administrator. I missed that in the vlog. Possible that Bob allowed the exception to boost the GB numbers? Have a go at it! I accidentally posted part of my entry early!! DOH! Cheers

Okay, I actually took the time to listen to the July vlog again and Bob definitely talks about using a kit you are already building or even taking one you have on display and using that in the diorama scene. My apologies for posting false info and causing confusion! My senility is showing! That Jeep is a really nice model build and finish so carry on with that in a diorama as you like. Next time, don’t mind me guys. Cheers

Hi Ted,
Thanx for the update and no worries. Since I am not native English speaker I could have misunderstood Bob in his vlog. But thanx for checking!

I think it’s a very good idea of Bobby to allow finish models as long as you build a diorama. Great opportunity to get out some “shelve queens” for some new life :-)

So, finally some progress on the jeep. Stowage is all done and figures are seated. Still hate painting faces so don't judge me 😉 
I did see some minor issues which have to be fixed and offcourse the mirror broke... And the carpet monster has it. Have to scratch built one now. 

BTW i notices some of my pics in my first post are missing. All broken links. Any idea what might have happend to them?

I believe that looks great! nice work.
As for the pictures, I couldn't see them the first time I tried. Don't know what the problem was/is.

I really get inspired when I see a static model that has so much happening that it seems to be a screen capture from a movie--so nice!
