I came across this site tonight looking endlessly for fire effects for Panther 225 Prahm's Panther at Stoumont. I have never seen this before and it looks to me with some alterations like a breakthrough?.

I would love to see this talked about, as I know making fire is a make or break and moreover, total walkaround for modellers, as the effects are never realistic. My only real issue is the smoke..What to do there...

To me it would look odd. The flickering fire would be the only movement in the dio. Why is the fire animated and nothing else; static figures, vehicles, grass, etc.? The dio is a snapshot in time, freezing the action and capturing it for an instant. The flickering fire would ruin that effect for me.

I use Bleached Wool, it came years ago from the Chemist in UK.
Very effective for thin wispy not dense smoke.

Do you need some?

A guy used a small electric votive candle. It flickers just a bit, and tucked well into a bit of a wood tepee it looked very good.
