    Hi all , I have at long last completed this little but really enjoyable scene in 1/35 called "Lost in Russia 1941" .
    The BMW is a Master Box kit witch is a bitch is to build :mad: but is worth it in the end , the crew are Mantis figure and standing figure is by Alpine .
    All the stowed kit is from my spares box n the slings and straps are made from paper stiffened with super glue .
    Everything is painted with Vallejo and life colour acrylics and the snow n mud is marble dust mixed with Gel Denso heavy transparent gel by Vallejo.

    I hope you like it ? Please let me know your thoughts on it Sam .

    Great work, looks very cold and wet. Considering all the muted colours everything holds it's own very well.

    Thanks Lew J.

    That is a great bit of modelling there Sam, whole scene works very well and your groundwork is fantastic to compliment the figures which you have painted so well.

    Nice job

    Hi sam,the whole scene is beautiful,you say it was a bitch to assemble and finish but let me tell you this is what makes a standard vignette into a stunning one,your extra efforts have been well rewarded,the scenery and snow is very well done,the scene most of all tells a story,and it looks real,i like it very much (y)
