My current project is a King Tiger from SS-Pz.Abt.503, who fought in Berlin in the last days of the war. I picked up Revell’s Tiger II, as it is one of the best 1/72 kits out there.
I thought to make a little vignette also, and when I came across this set from Italeri, I knew it will save me a lot of time.
In the box there are two sprue of brown-yellow plastic, with many useful stuff: different type of building walls, bricks and sacks. For a little vignette like mine, I will use about half of it, so plenty will remain for future projects.
And this how it looks together with the tank and some figurines from Zvezda.
In conclusion, this is a lovely set, quite affordable and a real time saviour for those who don’t have the time or skills to scratch build walls and ruins. You can buy the set here.
This pretty model could cover a wide range, from medieval Saracens to African world war II, even modern desert warfare. Is my first building, bit i’m satisfied with result. The sand bags are from an Imex ACW Accesories, and the structure for the canopy is made with wire and milliput. Is painted with Citadel paints, and some Vallejo Sepia Shade wash 73200. I thinking in use another kind of paints to save some money. I don’t know the manufacturer of the house, is a resin model, purchased on “La Flecha Negra” by 14€. A great complement for my Airfix Africa Korps
Put white glue (like Elmer’s Glue) on trees, and then put clump foliage covering they. You can drop the tree into a bag full of clump foliage, but after this sure you must fulfil some gaps.
Apply shadows or lights to achieve more realism. The result is quite good, unless they look fragile.
A best option is take natural branches from a dead tree, with a good appearance.
The result is quite good and get a lot diversify.
