Czech Bunker "Light object mark. 37 type E"

Here's another one from 2005 that I decided to finish. The inspiration came from this photo:

Here's how I did it back then:

This is how it looks today, just waiting for figures:

German Ammunition Bunker Attack

This one was started in 2005, one of my very first efforts at diorama building. It has stayed on the shelf until now, it's time to finish it and move on!

The inspiration came from a PN Sud Modelisme kit that I came across with at the time:


Here's what I built back then, how it looked like until I picked it up again recently:

The Nativity - Odemars


As you can see, I've just painted it black with Tamiya Flat Black. This will serve as an undercoat for the upcoming colours. I'll try to give it some life tomorrow.

After a few coats of Coloworks Automotive Primer, this scene is ready to receive some paint. This time, I'll be attempting to do it with Vallejo acrylics applied with paintbrushes instead of using the airbrush (mine's broken at the moment). It will be a chance to learn more about mixing colours and colour theory, something that I'm not very confortable with, as I spend more time building that painting...

The Nativity - Odemars

Well, I think this is it: I'm going to have this piece finished in time for Christmas :)

Recent changes:

Tree: rolled some strands of copper wire around the trunk to add some thickness; covered it with bathroom tile glue, as this adhesive has a nice texture and dries fast; added some pillow fibre to look like thin branches.

Base: covered everything with spackling paste with the help of a brush; sprinkled some fine dust and dirt.

Shore of Tago Bay, Ejiri at Tōkaidō

As I venture out
Onto the shore at Tago Bay,
I see snow, pure white,
Falling now ever deeper
On Mount Fuji's lofty peak.

Another paper diorama based on one of the woodprints that comprises the series entitled Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, by Katsushika Hokusai.
