Greg thanks for the pictures! It’s great! Definitely inspiration! John and Strenko thanks for joining for this project! It has began.... as of today im putting the road section together! And then i start with the horse drawn artillery ,soon as things get done I’ll post! Regards Danny
Hello everybody i made a little progress! I finished building the artillery and the limber . This was my first miniart kit i did be honest wasn’t an easy one! Loads of cleaning and also some of the sprues dosent have numbers so you have to go back and forth on the instruction pages and try identify the parts ! So it was a challenge but it’s done! Also made the road section but unfortunately its not long enough so I ordered another to extend! Next step is painting! Here are some pictures of the progress! Best regards Danny
Good evening to you all! Little progress again! The horses has been put together! Again wasn’t easy! Not fan of miniart kits ! Parts has not been provided to connect the horses with the limber! They expect you to scratch build! Which is fine with me but a beginner would have difficulty! So yeah not impressed! Anyway im happy it’s done! So here are the horses ! Thanks for looking cheers Danny
Great start and maybe you should have ordered 2 - 3 street pieces as this is growing every second. You've definitely given yourself some work painting figures once again. Drive on and make it happen. It's gonna be a truly epic scene when it's finished!!!!!
Thanks for the comments fellas! Try to do my best to take out the most from this miniart kits ! I have another tank to build also miniart so be honest not looking forward to it but it has to be done ! I guess the price reflects the quality! These kits are quite cheap! I make it happen no worries! Tomorrow i start to paint them ! Thanks for looking cheers Danny
Good evening to you all! There is no progress yet but I found something I like to share with you guys! As im doing this dio from Berlin i have been checking other people’s dioramas about the same subject and I come across this one and i felt is something that everybody should see because it’s fascinating ! Its a great inspiration for us modellers! I hope you guys will enjoy it as much as i did! So here it is.
That's some diorama, mind you it took 14 of them... I did like the use of the photographic backdrop , think that is very smart . I don't know about you but I like that idea.
Remember when the mere mention of MiniArt would strike fear in to many on MM . I had therapy after trying to build a Zis Truck Your horses look good as does the gun .
Taking shape nicely Danny.
Due to the rabble getting a head start on me, there are no empty seats close enough for me to see your build, so I'm up in the upper circle with a pair of binoculars. Plenty of room up here - and a 'Trolly Dolly' all to myself!.......
Mick John Ron and Scottie thanks fellas! I know Scottie figures are daunting but I guess get use to mass production after the Afrika! Ron is place for everyone in the theatre! John I love the picture backdrop idea i think it’s great and yeah miniart is a challenge but I deal with it! Thanks for looking further updates on the weekend regards Danny
Good evening everybody! I have completed the gun and the limber ! Next step is the horses! Also received the extension for the street and few more figures arrived! So things are start to pick up a shape ! Here are some pictures! Thanks for looking cheers Danny
Epic build ahead, loads to keep us interested.....it must be difficult keeping a consistent standard across so many items. Good start on the horses and guns though.
As to miniart, well I’ve only built one, the staff car, but thought detail, fit and finish were fine. The plastic used was awful though, very brittle so hard to work with.
Link was great as well, good find that one.
Hi Tim thanks for joining and also thanks for the comment! Usually I work on one thing at the time but this time Im multitasking im almost finished with 2 horses need a little more work but probably will be done by tonight! Also did the extension panels for the street but I decided I need a sidewalk to both side to make it wider , waiting for the delivery and soon it’s arrived I can start painting the street, until then I hopefully manage to finish the horses and get that fully finished ! Thanks for looking cheers Danny!
Tim's certainly right about MiniArts plastic, a mere look at the plastic caused it to snap !
.Well the street has grown , going to be another of your massive dios by the looks of things. Nice work on the Lumber, I found the steps on the side fiddly, but yours looks good.
