German Pak 40 gun and crew diorama, Russia 1943.

Recommended Posts

My first real crack at a diorama. This is the old Tamiya 75mm Pak 40 and crew, along with spares box weapons, ammo and extra crew member with binoculars. The grass is from Mininatur, the lighter roadway is tile grout, the darker dirt is just that from mums garden and the fence was made out of balsa wood. I'm not the best at figure painting but I'll get there. 1/35 is the scale.

I reckon that looks really good.

Does your mum know you stole her dirt? :)

Haha yeh, although I got a few frowns when she asked what I was putting in the microwave. Doing that kills off any rubbish in the dirt.

Very nice little dio with some dynamic in the setting. One little thought, the uniforms should be matted a little, then you have a nice and realistic contrast between helmets and equal coloured tunics.

Cheers Rob

Thanks mate. Yeh I know it does look like the figures are glossy, but I think the light is just picking up some of the pigment dry brushing, everything was hit with Tamiya matt. Looks better to the naked eye.

You may want to get Tamiya Flat. Tamiya Matt is semi gloss.

Oh, well yeh, you know matt/flat, same thing to me I guess, maybe not to everyone but first time I've heard someone say equate matt to semi gloss.
