    At this moment I'm working on a little dio. A Sherman tank entering a German town. A couple of G.I's walking beside the tank.
    Suddenly the tankcommander is aware of a sniper. But too late for one of the soldiers.
    So far the story behind this project.
    I 'm constructing this dio with left-overs and bits-and-pieces I found when I was cleaning up my workspace. I didn't want to buy new things. Only the decals and machine-gun was given to me from members of a Dutch modelling society.



    Most parts are from Tamyja . Kind of tough hard plastic, unlike the Airfix and Historex plastic. I had a lot of sanding, cutting and sawing to do. Arms, heads etc. were connected to the bodies with metal pins. Then came Magic Sculpt and sanding again.

    Still a lot to do

    Are you sure about the anatomy of that guy climbing onto the tank? His left hip seems a bit too "low down" for a human.
