The next project is the encounter of a Belgian dog cart and the crew of a French St. Chaumont tank and their mount, resting next to a destroyed factory. The tank has been built and is in the progress of painting
The factory is also being taken care of. I painted the walls and tried to fabricate a window. Hard to find the right balance. How is this?

The French must have commissioned Pierre-Auguste Renoir to design the cammo for their armored vehicles. :-O

A pity their Generals were so reluctant to take it up to the Germans. !

The poilus were very unwilling to continue fighting as the stale mate mass slaughters were senseless. Then they come up with these unwielding behemoths... I read somewhere that, after encountering the French heavies, the Germans simply widened their trenches so they could not be crossed by them...

I made a start with a new dio: a French St. Chaumont tank resting next to a ruined factory with its crew. While an old fashioned Belgian dog cart passes by. Old meets new. Hence the name. A start has been made with the factory and the tank has been build so far that it is ready to receive primer...

Project: Wunschdenken
1:35 Agricultural Tractor D8500 (MiniArt 38024)1:35 Man Pushing on his Wheelbarrow (MK35 F068)1:35 Leiterwagen / Hay wagon with wooden tank (PlusModel 428)2+

Since the kits for my current project is largely built and after painting 20+ faces I wanted to cut some plastic and sniff some glue, I decided to do a small project on the side. This is also an entry in the MiniArt campaign.
The subject of this dio will be the MiniArt Lanz-Bulldog D-8500, being admired by a passing farmer with a wheelbarrow. "If only I had one of those". Wishful thinking so to speak, or Wünschdenken in German.
The construction of the tractor is finished, ready to receive some paint.
Construction was rather straightforward. Only 2 parts gave some problems: a control rod was attached to the sprue with 3 gates, and, though successfully removed intact, broke in 3 parts while trying to clean it. Luckily it is easy to replace with some copper wire. The other one is the bracket for the exhaust. The instructions indicate it should be symmetrical, but once the exhaust is attached, it will be clear that it should not. So, while trying to correct it, this also broke in 3.
Besides all this, I added some minor details: a latch to lock the cover that hides the starter in place, a control valve on the end of one of the conduits (which should be scratch built by design) and a spring that keeps the cap on top of the engine cover in place.

A tractor needs something to do. A resin water cart, from Plusmodel has also been built, to be hitched behind the tractor. This will provide a nice contrast between the old fashioned cart and the tractor.
I only modified the drawbar: it has been shortened and a towing eye has been added by a local Eischenschmiede.

The wishful (or is it jealous) farmer has taken shape too. A old MK35 kit. The right hand came mangled out of the package, without fingers, so I had to replace it. I also turned the head to gape at the tractor.
And I want to add a little wildlife so an attempt has been made to create something that must resemble a blackbird from putty. This will be placed atop the watertank.

Thank you very much Ben. I appreciate it very much.

The tractor and water cart are both ready, only in want for some dusting. I wanted to depict a fairly new tractor, which did not receive the battering yet, so I held back on the washes and pigments. The cart, however has seen better days and was treated with oils and dark rust paint. Except for the towing eye;that is brand new, being made from forged iron.

And finished... Has been a nice little (30x24cm) project, with possibilities to try out some techniques which I have never done before. And they worked out remarkably well..
Thanks for watching and enjoy the pictures.

Building of the tractor is ready. This one is all ready to be smothered in paint…
I broke 2 parts: a thin rod, which was attached at 4 points. I managed to get it out in one piece, but while cleaning it up, it broke in 3 parts :\ Luckily it is easy replaced by a piece of copper wire.
The other one is the brackets for the exhaust. The instructions make it seem like it should be symmetrical, but once the exhaust has been attached, you'll notice it isn't. So while correcting this, the bracket also broke in to 3 parts.
Rather annoying were the seams running around the whole circumference, both on the inside and outside.
I added a few minor details: an adjustment valve at the end of one of the conduits, a latch on the side where the tractor can be started and a spring that keeps the cap on the front in place…

Yet another wagon ready to receive (some more) paint. And because Thunder Model, in all their wisdom decided to include only one PE grate (and I prefer the grates over the slatted ones, which are included) I decided, after some wise advice) to make the grates myself from Evergreen. Looks a bit different, but not easy to make. Comments are always welcome.
6. December 2020, 18:04
Erwin Leetink
Aaaand finished. This is the last wagon for this project.
Not one for the faint hearted or inexperienced. Very detailed but with some flaws that need corrected or worked around. I made the couplers articulate and left the airhoses off, to facilitate coupling with other wagons.
Hope you like it and as always comments are welcome...

Karl finally got his shoes on… I mentioned earlier that I wanted Friul tracks for Karl, as those rubber bands were out of bounds. These, however, were impossible to get by my LHS (who generally is a reseller of Friuls). So he finally managed to get a different brand: Masterclub.
So, after 8 months (!) I finally got some metal to assemble. Took me 2 days :roll_eyes:
After dipping them in burnishing fluid, I put them on…

Well, another step to the completion of the diorama is taken…
I can say, not without pride, that I finished the BR-86. It was an interesting journey, again with a couple of firsts. Like weathering black and red…
Thank you for watching and I hope you like it…

WOW!! Amazing me Son!! I started to look for some inspersion tonight since I could only find a few dioramas on line, then found yours! looks like what I had in Mind!
Outstanding work Erwin!! from the ground work, figures, weathering and BR-52.....etc etc! I have the BR-52 and a few cars! I am planning on turning two of the small flatbeds into a couple of passenger cars! Question: do you have any info on the small passenger cars used by Germany? and could you tell me where did you get the decals for your BR-52, I've seen so many modelers with the black/red and camo versions, not sure if they are accurate for the early war years. But your Engine looks the most realistic so far!!

Thanks

Eddie
14. August 2020, 23:18
Erwin Leetink
Gentlemen, I thank you. @Edward. I am humbled to hear that I am an inspiration to you. What I basically did is make up all, kind of small stories around the combination of station and Br-52, to depict the real world. Everyone has his/her own motivation to be somewhere and to go somewhere else. A station is thé place where these stories come together, albeit for a short while.

The type you commonly encounter in those days is the so called Donnerbüchse. If you search this, you are bound to get enough information.

As for the decals, they are from Peddinghaus, though I do not recommend them. The design is awful, with the text split in two horizontal,. That is, the actual middle sentence is split!
Plus the carrier film is very, very thick! Getting them on is a hassle and it is impossible to hide the edges...
15. August 2020, 21:44
Edward Turner
Thank for the help Erwin! your right about the small stories, that is the basis for most Dioramas we as models build!
I looked up the Donnerbuchse and yes; I found the info I was looking for, so thanks. as for the decals, I found them on the Peddinghaus web site and they look crappy, but you did a very good job of placing them on your BR-52!

Well take care and stay safe!

Thanks

My pleasure. On hindsight I regret using those decals, yet, on the other hand: a really viable alternative is lacking, since the kit decals are so bad, subject wise...
