Looking good so far.  Is the wall home-made or a kit?  If a kit, who makes it?

hello .

thank's , yes , heavy arty , it's home-made , look this :

 wooden stalks of 8 mm x 8 mm ,a plate of plexiglas or the glass , the adhesive tape , some plaster , small piece of wood or kadapak ( cardboard plucks ) for window or door .

  " alt="" />

with a putty knife , you spread in the frame having to mix the plaster with the water so that is thick and to let dry .

  " alt="" />

 I engrave the covered in plaster with a point has to trace to bound the place or I wish to reveal brick and with the small scraper , I remove a thickness .

Hello Phil!

Really cool stuff here, it would be a pity if you didn't share with us! I'm glad I talked you over.

Other thing - I happen to know Phil would like to take a look at the TM for the Duster - maybe somebody of you know if/where it can be downloaded from the 'net?

Phil - good luck with your build and have a nice day

That's some excellent scratch building! It looks like the set for "Full Metal Jacket". What other items are going to be in this scene? Figures, Armor or both??

Hello Phil!

Sorry to hear about your loss. Maybe a little modelling will help you think about that and feel a little better. Nice progress here! The buildings look impressive. I'd suggest toning down the "cracks" a little, they look a little overdone to me.

The foliage - plantsa and grass - look very good. Here you could put on some random pattern in different shades of green with an airbrush to vary the colour a little, and make it look even more realistic.

It's exciting to see the Ontos being built - with interior!

Thanks for sharing and good luck with your build, have a nice day

Hi pawel .

 thank you , pawel , it's nice from you .

 Yes, a little model , it helps has to change the spirits and I like he my diorama a lot , it's even easier .

 I'm going to arrange that for cracks and to increase the differences of tints for the grass .

 For the ONTOS , I had to find a comment on MILITARY MODELLING or a person made a small scratch of interior , and I said to myself  : why not .

Hello!

Your vehicles are lookin' good! Nice job!

It might be worth it to replace the bumperettes (the rear bumpers) of the Dodge with parts made of sheet metal - copper or even beer cans will do here and the parts could look a lot nicer!

The tank also looks good, it's a Dragon kit, isn't it?

Good luck with your build and have a nice day
