TOPIC: Eastern Front - Snow scene

Eastern Front - Snow scene 05 Aug 2010 10:58 #1

The Stug on this base was the first AFV I had made for many years. I decided to show it on a snowy diorama - somewhere on the Eastern Front.

The tree was made first as this was going to be one of the main elements of the finished scene. The photo below shows how the Stug would sit in the snow. The other main element of the dio was to be the single figure which was stooping at the same angle as the tree.



The whole base was given an undercoat of white household emulsion paint



Next some general foliage/vegetation was added



Snow was added over everything and fixed in place using scenic glue and hairspray



At this point the figure was added, and the scene starts to come to life



Meanwhile - this was also happening. Not too much info here as I know there are more qualified people here to advise on this side of things. I do remember adding the whitewash then removing it then adding it again so the photos below may be out of sync a bit.

















The Stug was then ready to be put on the base.
























The snow thawed out a bit on this one



Thanks for taking a look at this. Any questions are more than welcome.
