Dragon 1/35th Pz II Ausf F completed pics.
Posted by Bish on Sunday, August 20, 2017 1:17 PM

My latest dio see's Dragons 1/35th Pz II Ausf F in the ruins of a small factory workshop in the early days of the battle of Stalingrad. The bulding is from Great North Roads, a company based in the UK.

The figures are a mix of Dragon, ICM, Mini Art, Tamiya and Bravo 6.

Thanks for looking, all comments welcome.

Now that's how you paint a building!  Excellent job giving tone variations to the brick walls.Beer

Hi Bish,

Love the diorama! Just out of curiosity did you have a picture of a small factory that you worked from? I would expect even a small "factory" to have the walls much further apart. Not that it really matters of course. 

I type on a tablet. Please excuse the terseness and the autocorrect. Not to mention the erors.

I have to agree with MM on your paint work on the building. Were or are there certain colors you use? Do you blend these colors together then apply to the structure? You are going to have to do a "How To" here in the near future on how you build these wonderful dio's. LOL Big SmileBow Down

Thanks uga. Now, i didn't work off a piucture. I know what you mean, i see this more of a small workshop rather than a factory, maybe part of a larger complex. To call it a factory is stretching things a bit.

For the brickwork, i go with reds, browns, orange and yellow. The bricks get an overall colour and then i just apply random colours as i go. This is only my second one, so now i am happy in what i am doing, next time i will go into more detail. Though i am not sure when that will be as yet.

Hey Bish,

This is an excellent dio. The weathering on the tank, the building and the amount of debris and exterior foliage is well displayed and brings a sense of realism to your work.

Wow, Bish! Your dio looks spectacular! I have to say, while I was observing your WIP, I was trying figure out how you were going to arrange this dio. And I have to say, you exceded my expectations on how it looks! Very well done!

Thanks Bruce. I had to make sure it was feasible for the tank to get into such a tight space, but i still wanted to leave the wall section in place. Fortunatly, turned out just right.
