well it is a zombie diorama and zombies don't make plans ... [wink]

you've got to get into the mindset of the zombie to appreciate the
nuances of a monolithic mindless urge to eat brains [biggrin] [biggrin] [biggrin]

My favorite zombie scene of all time was when a zombie stepped up onto
some boxes and the helicopter chopped the top half of its head clean orf !

Got any helis Pete ? [biggrin]

I've been thinking a last man on earth would be quite an easy dio to do,
only one figure ....... [wink] [biggrin]


"The plan is there is no plan" lol reading that made me smile and realise how tragically unprepared I am for this group build. I have a couple of diorama ideas in mind now but they probably won't use all of the kits.

The top of the zombie head being chopped off ( like a boiled egg lol ) is from the original "Dawn of the dead"
Movie and a while back I was building a bell jet ranger and was going to try and use it to replicate the scene.
The model is still unfinished and I would like to include it in this project but as its already started I do t think it would qualify so will see if I can fit in the big helo if I can.

The zombie apocalypse happened more than twenty years ago.

The dead still walk; loved ones still try to eat you if you're not careful; the virus that caused the problem in the first place is still incurable. But at least we lived, right?

The Newsflesh Trilogy is a story about blogging, politics, medical science, espionage, betrayal, the ties that bind, the ties that don't, how George Romero accidentally saved the world, and, of course, zombies. It's thoughtful horror, and horrific science fiction, and I'm very fond of it.


I like the sound of these books mate, I'll have a look for them In Swansea next time I'm there, I've read the world war Z book and that was pretty good ( much better than the film ) but these sound like a new spin on the formula and I'll definitely have a read of them

Don't you still have a 1/32 carrier deck sitting around? That might make for a good dio scene base. Like a scene from WWZ gone bad. [wink]


Cheers Mike, it feels good to be back

How's things mate ? It's been a while since we spoke I hope all is well with you and yours

I do still have it but Unfortunately the carrier deck is a little worse for wear, I needed to make space down in the basement so the deck ended up in the garage and the damp got to it. Too much work to rescue it so its firewood now lol

I decided to start With the big rig. we call them Arctics here, and in the US they are a semi ? I'll stick to truck from herein as the term semi has a completely different meaning this side of the pond lol

As per rules here are sprue shots

Being a snap tite kit there isn't a lot to it and although it can't be seen In the pics there is a lot of flash on the parts so I'm having to do a lot of clean up

The trailer is a large moulding

It's very long ( I cannot confirm or deny that my wife said the same words on our wedding night )

This truck is in 1/32 and all other models will be in 1/35, I think I can get away with the difference between this and the other vehicles as in real life these things are so massive but I was worried about the scale difference with the figures

So basically you are going to give us all a semi [smile]

On a serious note, looking forward to seeing how this develops

The pilot on the left is 1/32, Rick is a McFarlane figure and has no stated scale but looks close to the pilot in size and the German officer is 1/35.

The figures should work against the truck but I think the 1/35 figures I have will look a little short against Rick and the zombies

And finally decals.
Well stickers is what they are ( literally peel off and stick ) given it's snap together nature it's no surprise as its intended to be a simple build kit. But I won't be using them and will try to come up with a humorous logo of some sort and spray them on

I have started construction but so far it's been mostly cleaning flash off and not very interesting too loo at but once I've got something worth showing I'll post it up

People vary enormously in height and size etc.
those figures all look like they could totally work together [smile]

if that truck is a touch abandoned it might have loads of graffiti all over it ? [wink]
might be really art farty graffiti too, it's a big canvas [biggrin] [biggrin] [biggrin]

I don't think the scale is much of an issue when it comes to the truck,
because let's face it, some trucks just are bigger than other trucks ..........

@ Paul

I think the 1/35 figures will be fine with the truck but the other vehicles may look a bit out of scale, I'll try and keep them away from the lorry if I can and it should be ok.

I was thinking about having some graffiti but it will depend on how I end until displaying this truck on the diorama as I have a few ideas now but haven't made my mind up yet so it won't get painted on until I've figured out which way I'm going to take it.

"Some trucks are bigger than other trucks" yeah but it's the way you drive that matters lol

this update isn't very exciting I'm afraid but I have made progress so here it is

The chrome sprue got a dip in bleach
[CENTER]
[/CENTER]

The finish came off really quickly ( just a few minutes ) but there is a kind of clear varnish underneath the chrome that stayed on so I left it overnight but it didn't shift it
Doesn't show up well In the pics but it's really thick and I want it gone so they will be going into oven cleaner next
[CENTER]
[/CENTER]

The truck cabin is primed. It's a simple one piece moulding but will be ok with a bit of colour on it

Some assembly has been going on and more parts are primed.
[CENTER]
[/CENTER]

Inside of the cab didn't escape from the primer
[CENTER]
[/CENTER]

Nor did the outside. Airbrushed Mr Surfacer and it's looking quite smooth but feels a tiny bit gritty so I will wet sand it before top coats go on

Chassis has a few more bits to go on but they are on the chrome sprue so I will need to wait until I get the double hard nuke proof clear coat stuff off before I can fit them but the snap together nature of the kit meant I could happily prime the chassis without worrying about getting glue on it when it comes to fitting them

"" "Some trucks are bigger than other trucks"
 ......... yeah but it's the way you drive that matters lol ""

Like I stole it mate, that's how I drive, like I stole it ........ [biggrin]


as for vehicle scales. I reckon it will be less obvious because artics are big anyway compared to cars
I reckon if it was a 1/32 car sitting next to a 1/35 car it might be more obvious [smile]

anyhow
""this update isn't very exciting I'm afraid""

Ooh I've got that fizzy feeling James May's always banging on about [biggrin] [biggrin] [biggrin]
