It has been some time since I posted anything in our forum. Awhile ago I decided to revisit all of the other modeling subjects that I use to build in the past. During that time I have rediscovered my love for modeling (anything and everything). I have even surprised myself by venturing into figure painting and other subjects previously never pursued. With this introduction I am showing one of my latest creations; I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed building it.
- Tamiya 1/16 Kubelwagen - Jeff Shiu's Miniatures figure set - Base built from layered foam board, milliput, scale scene materials, and yard stuff - Tamiya, Vallejo, and Testors MM paints - pastels, sharpie markers, and watercolor pencils - foil straps and slings - P.E. buckles, Iron Cross, etc.
And, "YES" it is suppose to depict Northern Italy in late 1944. I started it the second week of February and finished it just last weekend. Taking into consideration the time for research, purchasing numerous product, and the three phase build of the kubel, figures, and diorama base, it took around 160-180 hours of actual build time.
Thanks for looking and thanks again for the kind words....

Thank you very much for the kind words. All totaled it took around four months to purchase, research, and complete. Through this one I dabbled into things to expand my painting pallet such as water color pencils, Sharpie markers, and pastels.
