Very nice work, love the amount of figures you've added, really brings the scene to life
I agree with Jan. Some pictures look like real life photos.
Oh damn that's good.
really really good one
Thank You very much for your comments, mates. (and for the likes too).
@ Jan, I thought (and write) in the Marder II D_16 Inf Mot Div_Rasputitsa_Kalmykiya album, that 14 figures where a alltime record, but afterall this one has 15 figures 😄
@ Neuling, glad you stoped by. I don't know how to work with photoshop, so Improvised and started to use the pc screen in the background 😉
@ playtime 222, It's great to read your comment.
@ Martin, I'm very glad you like it.

I especially like the precision modeling tool in workbench picture #11, in front of the gold statue. Sometimes you need a little something special when a model just won't go together. Lol
@hammer, LOOLLL, I knew that I have a gold statue (offered by my young sun in fathers day). But precision modeling tools, I don't have many, so I had to look and you made me laugh.Thank God I haven't had to use it on any model, yet 😄
Que buen lugar para relajarse! Que envidia sana... 🤣🤣🤣
Una pregunta, veo que tienes muchas maquetas de la marca ITALERI que tal calidad son? Yo solo hize el tanque FURY y fue bastante malo. Un saludo
Nice modeling area.
Thank you mates.
@DAVID, não me posso queixar, mas luz exterior e água corrente seria óptimo 😉
Eu gosto bastante dos Italeri, já fiz o Elephant, o RSO, o Opel Blitz e seu atrelado, todos eles tiveram a sua dose de scratch build, mas isso também faz parte do gozo do hobby, certo?
São kits mais antigos que não estão ao nivel de detalhes dos kits actuais, mas lembro-me de ver obras primas feitas com italeris, por exemplo por Verliden e outros mestres 😉
Já para não falar numa óptima relação qualidade/preço ...

Alec: Apparently a lot of Roy cross's original artwork was destroyed. Some of it was sold at auction over the years. I've just found a listing for a 2014 auction of his work. When he stopped working for Airfix he mainly painted ships – some of his Airfix work is half way down the first page.
I'd have happily made a few bids if I'd known at the time.
Just read that his first Airfix art was this:
Dornier 217. E.2 (Airfix 383, 1:72)
And his last:
Prinz Eugen (Airfix 05203-2, 1:600)
Cool! Thanks Gorb 👍
@ gorbygould, Thx for sharing the info 👍. I remember doing both 😄
That's quite a cool idea. I wish I had done something similar, but too late now 👍
Sorry for the late reply, Mate. Thx for the compliment. I'm ot the only one and I think it's never too late, so😉

Thx, Urban, ofcourse you are right.
m91/30 scopes are dirt simple - you just need a bit of tubing, Rui: https://www.m9130.info/pu-sniper-scopes
Thx Ben, but not doing it, this time. 🤔
What is the problem with the figure?
Not sure yet, but I've airbrush it with the some paint mixture, so it may be like the Maxim? 🤔

Ah, you are too kind Rui, and thank you for the lovely compliment, but you and your build are the star of the show here! praise goes to you my friend, for helping to us to remember some fond childhood memories 👏
Thank you, Mates 👍
@ James, that was my intention, glad you like it 🙂
@ JD, Just saying the truth, mate and thanks again for your very kind words.
Space:1999 - love it, Rui! When I got back into the hobby one of the first things I built was an Eagle, because when I was a kid I built one.
@ Ben, Thank you, I see yours. Nice model and you even put some PE in it?
@ Curatorm, Thx, I'm glad you like & comment it😉

Thank you for your kind comments Rui. Mainly coming from a namesake😉 (my S also comes from da Silva).
I'm really sorry, that I don't know how to work with Photoshope, but I'll try to follow your advice with other programs and see how it works.
I see you scrolled through the photos in the Album, thanks again for that.
With around 100 thousand tons of cork per year, Portugal is the largest producer in the world, so it is natural that around here we use corks in a lot of things. Tinto, white, Porto, Madeira, etc. I like all of them 😄
So. Saying "Put a cork in it." instead of 'shut up' is not an insult. ?
It's so much nicer pulling the cork out of a bottle of wine, rather rather than the plastic or screw top crap the world uses now. :-/
Yap Kezza, I think it's more polite, at least 😄
And I completely second your wise words. Cork is a noble material with several very good characteristics and it is even currently used by NASA😉
Nice Work, impressive diarama, detailed work.
Thank you for your kind words David Pearson. I'm very glad you like it. Much apreciated.
I've got the older version of this kit molded in the dark gray and it's a tough one to work with; congrats for doing a stellar job, especially with those rather difficult and sometimes strangely posed figures of theirs. (I'm thinking of the Italeri Schwimmwagen with the officer holding his elbow up over his head LOL).
Thx a lot Al, much apreciatted and I'm really glad you like it.
I really liked all the work needed to make the kit and figures something decente. the result always serves as an incentive.
I'm leaving my best kits for when I have more experience.😉
Great attention to detail, looks really good.
Thank you for your nice comments, David Pearson and David Taylor. I'm realy glad you like it. Much apreciated.

Very nice. Good colours ! I just think the driver is too far on the right.
Thank you very much for your very nice comments, mates.
@ Dietmar, Much apreciated and I feel happy that you like this one.
@ Jan, Yap I can say that I'm a bit of an old school stubborn. Still a lot of dry brushing; humbrol enamel use; lack of aftermarket stuff and so on...😉 But very glad to receive your comment.
@ Olivier, You might be right, I think the driver got scared and followed the traffic controller's directions to strictly😉
I like the way you place the models and figures so that they look natural and realistic. It brings your dio's to life.
What a lively and realistic scene, I can almost hear this Opel Blitz's engine being downshifted one gear, while taking that curve.....
The guy with the sunglasses looks exceptionally cool !
Hallo Hanno, I'm very, very glad that you noticed this work and comment. Your kind words made me laugh.
You are right, that down slope curve and the guy waving... better be careful. Thank you, very much appreciated.
If that one looks cool, it is the other one who is smoking, who knows what, with all that smoke coming out😉

I'm using it even at home, when I'm with my boys.
Good move Rui. You can't be careful enough. Especially now there is a more deadly strain of the virus sweeping the world. To tell you the truth. I am quite scared. I stay in my home all the time and have my food and all other requirements for daily living delivered. It's cheaper to eat 'Jenny Craig' dietary food than to go out and shop for regular type nourishment. :-/ Stay vigilant. 👍
Yap that's the way. Probability reduction.
They say the new strain is less deadly, but with a lot easier transmissibility 🤔
What ever it is. I will keep my distance. hehehehe 👍
