I'd like this one to show the irony of this world by juxtaposing a beautiful garden wall draped in greenery and flowering vines (if I can swing them) with a couple of willows set just inside of it
against the ugly, beastly machine of death, destruction and mans frustrations.

Wish I had more time to do step by step IP threads, just too busy I guess.
Suffice it to say I shall put in another update or two before completion, thanks for looking in.
Sorry for the lousey pics, was in a bit of a rush :confounded:

Got wall mostly done, forgot to paint axe...oh well.
prepping tree for just inside wall hanging a bit over lower section.

Having fun doing this one, a bit different from my usual gore :flushed:
All greenery is from literally steps from my front porch, except for blades of gassy weeds which are snips from an old paint brush.

Hope you like progress so far.

Jim.

Hi Jim.
Some nice stone sets, and the pattern. Like the idea of the set, from one extreme to another.
And no bodies ........ Yet:flushed:

Jim,
That's a big thumbs up from me.
Hi Jim looks very convincing to me, love how the cobbles go in different directions, very good indeed.

Very nice work so far Jim ;) :thumb2:

Thanks for your kind comments guys, working on Calliope Sherman now.
It will be a long haul with my limited modeling time available and the fact that I want it to portray a well field worn piece
with plenty of stowage and grime.

I've also decided to add complete wiring harnesses for rocket system, studied some pics and will try my best to do a convincing
job of them.

John got me thinking about "bodies"
The Misses says "no dead bodies..please!" so I settled on wounded instead.
Nothing gross, tastefully done of course.

Thanks again for your kind attention.

Jim.

Jim,
I built one of these a while ago so if you want any pictures for reference give me a shout. I did have a wiring diagram for the tubes but I haven't got it any more but I do have a some pictures of the finished wiring plus the boxes and flame deflectors.
