I picked up this gem on Ebay a few weeks ago. It is a pretty good set. It has tanks, troops and war accessories. However.... I am not sure the choice of tanks for the time period is all that accurate, to be polite. Anyway, the diorama base is one of the better ones. I think this also comes in the Saigon ESCI set. Again, I used crushed kitty litter on some acrylic paste and let it set for 24 hours.
Here is a rough finish. I still had more work to do. But, this is a good example of always work from dark to light tones.
I am very pleased with the way this came out. I added some 1/72 scale brick bits I found on Ebay.
Now the tanks choices are very odd, indeed. The Russian T-34 is a the 1943 version. The Wespe is from 1942. At least the 35(t) was in Operation Barbarossa, but in limited numbers. ESCI could have used their KV1 and given the Germans a PzII or III.
These Germans are from Plastic Soldier Co.
Now I reequipped the diorama for something like Kharkov 1943...
