WIP Dunkirk "vignettorama"

Discussion in 'vBench (Works in Progress)' started by PLG, Nov 29, 2022.

    Ok, I made the word up but it fits with this project, which is to build a series of six small vignettes, each with only 3 figures, which will depict different aspects of the 'dunkirk story. The plan is for the 6 to be:

    rearguard
    in the dunes
    boarding a "little ship"
    disembarking in Dover
    aboard a train inland
    aftermath - two british pow's and a German guarding them.

    I have started work on the first two, here are a couple of in=progress photos of the bases:

    A long way to go an this will be a long-term project, no rush.

    Hi guys

    thanks for the kind words. It's nice to make a number of models which are all different, and have different challenges, but on on a theme.
    the next one will be getting aboard a 'small ship', the resin should be a challenge. does anybody ha e any tips?

    Looking forward to that. I take it that the soldier(s) will have waded/swam to the Little Ship, and are climbing/helped on board, so more of a setting in the surf, rather than deep water?

    I would consider cutting the boat hull and figures in the water down, and only model a thin layer of water.
