Hi Guys,

Here are my FAMOs pulling my Ferdinand an Einheitsdiesel with Tamiya field kitchen in the back is on a side road.
The Russians/Ukrainians are from Mig, Stalingrad and Masterbox. the blacksmith is made from the lots of parts from the spares with verlinden arms and a hornet head.

All of the houses are scratchbuilt. Two from plastic card and two from coffee stirrers, the smithy is completely scratchbuilt from plastic card
with only the anvil and a couple of hammers from kits, the toilets are also scratchbuilt from plastic card with two of them getting lead roofs.

The fence is also plastic card as are the gates, the well and the pigsty.

the washing is typing paper soaked in whie glue.

Sorry for the long post.

all comments are welcome.

Anto

Hi Markohead,

I was thinking of stepping the houses to make it less uniform, I looked on
Google Earth at the region of Russia and the Ukraine and I saw that the village houses along the routes to Nilopol were very neat and in line,
Not all of them but some of them, I also had a bit of a fit issue at theis scale as the depth of the dio was an issue as it is 1/35scale.

Thank you for your comments it is taken well.

Anto

I had the pleasure last weekend at the IMSS show in Dublin. It's impossible to get a good photo due to the size of it.
Great work Anto. Now get to work on 5 Famo's pulling a Tiger.
Regard's, Dave.

Thank you Dave,
but me thinks I will be leaving the FAMOs alone for a little while...

I will get some better pics soon but I have to sort out my camera problem... I think Larry did a fly by with his camera on video so he might put it up on youtube. LOL
