Yes, another project I can call finished!!
All I actually needed to do, was to make a base for it. I wanted to keep that simple, since it's been awhile since I last done one and I did not want to go overboard, as I tend to do, with some post apocalyptic scene. Just a simple base, showing concrete slabs with grass and such. Like an abandoned airfield or something.
The base is a round cork disc (to put your glass on), glue to a round wooden base. Dimensions fitted nicely. I carved rectangular blocks from it before glueing it in place. That gave nice, coarse edges. Then I painted the whole thing in layers of different shades of grey, making sure to not have an even finish. Then drybrushing with greys and whites. When dry I glued in the grass tufts in the cracks, followed up by pebbles and dust.
Non of the items here are posted with any form of political meaning, content or similar. Everything is displayed with an emphasis on historical correctness, unless stated otherwise. Swastikas and SS-runes are a part of military history, as are David's stars, rising suns, stars & stripes, hamer & scyths etc. If you have a problem with that, please feel free to leave! Political correctness does not live here and I will not be held accountable for hurting any overly sensitive souls that can not handle history.
If you are interested in building scalemodels, study actual military history and the like however, you're most welcome to stay, browse, read and/or comment.
The contents of this blog are mine; the models I built, the ideas I used etc. If you want to use these, I'd appreciate it if you asked permission first and use the contents as they are intended; the making and depicting of scalemodels.
The reference pictures I used were dug up on the internet and I use them only as such. Unfortunately I have no idea where I found them anymore, but many are from German archives. These pictures have their origin still visible on them.
