....with man´s best friend.
Started this project in 2011. After finishing a bone dry desert diorama I decided to go for the extreme opposite: a rainy scene from the eastern front. The challanges has been many along the way, but it´s rewarding to step outside the confort zone. I would say every step and ingredience has been achieved throgh endless trial and errors. Got the idea for the vignette at once when I lay my hands on that stunning russian figure from Stalingrad and a white metal dog (manufacturer unknown). For a loong time the whole thing was at a standstill since I simply couldn't get the figure right in the painting process. In the end, just to finnish the vignette before 2016, I asked Johan Fohlin to paint the darn thing. Credit to him for this, I did the rest

Best regards from Göteborg, Ulf

My mind is blown.

Two questions came to my mind.
1. Where did you get the maïs/corn plants?
2. How did you make all those raindrops?

Impressive work!

In all the opposite glory of that most excellent Panzer I desert vignette way back when...this is just as brilliant. Love it Ulf. Great to see you realize your goals, and I can't imagine the work getting all those drops looking just right. Congrats!

Did all the uploading etc using my wife´s MAC with the first batch. Now, in my PC they appear very dark.

Here´s an additional set processed in the PC (in a rush).
