....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?

Very well done. You cracked the question, how to depict falling rain.
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).
