Yeah! I am done with my E-50 diorama. I’m quite pleased with the base (rubbles, sandbags and all).
It just needs a miniature or two. I have them on the way (stay tuned for future posts).
Wait… there are still some little things to complete… Like adding antennas to the tank… and some barbwiresin the rubbles.
Let’s call this one 99% done, ok?
Anyway, enjoy the pics!
A couple of months ago, I picked up a panzer 35(t) kit (Academy #13313).
These small Czech tanks were captured by the germans in mars 1939. They were used during the invasion of Poland and France at the start of WWII. They saw combats up until 1941, being by then totally outmatched by more recent enemy tanks (especially on the eastern front).
I find that this tank has an “old school” look to it, due mainly to the countless protruding rivets, small size and small gun. It looks a bit WWI-ish to me.
I am sorry for not posting the first steps of this (simple) build. I am already done with priming, pre-shading, base coat, decals and main details (like tools and exhaust).
This little fellow is varnished and ready for weathering (chipping, oils washes and pigments).
