Wacht am Rhein
Posted by Bucksco on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 10:13 PM

This diorama is my humble "Homage" to Shep Paine. It features the old Valiant Minatures Battle of the Bulge figure set and the only Monogram 1/32 scale piece of armor that Shep never did a diorama sheet for - the M8/M20 Armored car. Enjoy!

Great tribute/homage with the old school figures and kit! Yes

 

I wonder why the M8/M20 never received the Shep treatment....

Oh great job there on the M20, figures, groundwork, and overall composition. Yes

 

Wonder if Shep just never got around to this one?

If I recall correctly the M8/M20 were produced after he moved on from monogram and was doing work for Tamiya and some other companies.

I saw this at MFCA last weekend-I didn't realize it was yours.  I was impressed and I think you show what can be done with a Monogram kit, when so many modelers today turn up their noses at them.  Well done, Jack!

Thanks Brad - much appreciated! It was a "Nostalgia" build. I've always really liked this figure set (even though it's close to 50 years old!) and a coworker had given me the armored car because he knew I was into military modeling. It just kind of fell together and I really enjoyed the trip down memory lane. Maybe next time we we'll be able to say hello at the show!
