while I'm waiting for some paint I need for the sherman, I started adding a little a Silfor grass and paint for the 1st layer for water. Some dry pigments are next and gloss(wet) near the water. I'm going to test Vallejo Gloss clear and Valejo Still water Cheeers

Hi Greg , your Russki Sherman project is coming along very nicely. I love the sense of momentum that you have designed into the diorama - the silfor materials look great

Regarding the diorama - have you any plans for any additional objects / figures to it? I say this in relation to the space that is to the right of the gun in the 2nd pix... anything small additional there would be pleasing to the eye

Hope your paint arrives soon - keep at it and looking forward to the next update


Best

Paul

Gregorio,

This one is going smoothly adn quickly I see. I like the small composition you are making there and love the scene with tall grasses. Thats silflor stuff looks great in the pics.

Following Paul remark, I also think you can still depurate the distribution of elements there, but my suggestion is to take that guy out the river and place it over the Sherman talking with with commander. Maybe that will enhance the communication between figures and will make a compact image of the whole thing... What do you think?

Good work anyways, amigo.

tested the Vallejo still-water also. It's good stuff if you not use it for deep things !
I'm curios about your job with it.

cheers Erik
