Another impressive dio, just WOW! What materials did you used for the gravel?
6. January, 12:29
Zach Wilson
Thanks guys! The gravel is a combination of Woodland Scenics ballasts as well as dirt from the backyard. Glued it down with scenic glue, painted it with a couple of overall colors and then picked out the individual rocks with contrasting paints. Night Shift has videos on how he does it, I use a similar process.

thanks, i dont know what I was thinking, I'm not qualified to mix my own colors lol
8. September 2020, 02:17

Really nice scene and the color of the scooter is much, much better than this green/yellow. I love the concrete, looks very realistic.
You also managed the skin color, but I don't like the eyes that much. The pupils seem imho a bit too small and they are too white.
I hope the little criticism is ok. ;)

8. September 2020, 07:34

very nicely done. very realistic. excellent pain job

@Erik my wife kept telling me that she had "Those Crazy Eyes" and I think you hit the nail on the head of why. @Spanjaard there is a 1/12 version of the character but the only one in the database is the 1/20 version.
8. September 2020, 14:26

I agree that it still looks great. After the splash :)
1. September 2020, 13:21
Patrick Hagelstein
It's hard to make a static model look dynamic without the actual motion a real world object has, so I can understand your frustrations about the mud splash not looking 'dynamic'. Still, the alternative turned out to be great as well! If we hadn't seen the splash pictures (real and hot glue ones), we wouldn't even have known what you're trying to aim at. Now, we are just equally amazed by the quality of that T-90 on a dirt road.

Slavo Hazucha
It would have been great if the mudsplash would have worked, but with the result at hand, it´s hard to pity it actually did not turned out that way... this looks really great as is & the relaxed natural crew poses add a superb atmosphere to the scene - well done job!

the under desk drawers are these guys, they are super useful for quick access to a specfic tool: https://amazon.com/gp/produc..le_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
The window is dark because it is night, having sunlight at during the day is very nice. Lighting overall is not there yet, the wife and I are discussing options (she has veto power over all choices, if I had my way i'd buy ultra powerful shop lights).
4. August 2020, 14:12

Yeah, I ordered mine on Amazon too. With 7-8€ a piece relatively expensive (60€ for my 8 Pieces). Available from some suppliers and in different colors.

Zach when looking for lighting be careful of how much heat they produce. I have a row of jewelry store spots under the upper portion of my bench. Great light, too much heat at full brilliance. Fortunately they are dimmable.

Zach, so I am assuming that the pipes get connected to some sort of AFFF or other fire suppression foam? In which case, it would need a HUGE amount of foam. If its purpose is just to blow back the flames and smoke for a wildcat crew to get close enough to work on the rig, then that is still al ot of wind to deal with at your back! A very interesting Russian re-purposing of old T-55 hulls. The possibilities are almost endless. There are a few limits to what you can do with a demilled T-55 hull and what appears to be 2 × Dobrynin RD-7M-2 afterburning turbojet engines. Very nice build! Kindest regards, Dutch

Great idea for a model. Is it for clearing airfields or roads? Nothing like it in the UK!!

It's for putting out oil well fires

Very impressive Zach! All our Oil in the UK is under the North Sea but sadly that hasn't stopped the odd rig explosion and sadly some loss of life. Things seem safer nowadays apart from the helicopter journeys to and from the rigs! One of my friends working on the Rigs said you need two vital skills 1) the ability to spot when something is about to go terribly wrong 2) The ability to run very fast if the first happens!! :-{

yeah frankly I prefer my office job, it's slightly more soul crushing but much less likely to end in accidental death caused by falling pipes or explosions.

OK, being a retire firefighter, this is of interest. Not a type of fire I have ever dealt with though.

Zach, so I am assuming that the pipes get connected to some sort of AFFF or other fire suppression foam? In which case, it would need a HUGE amount of foam. If its purpose is just to blow back the flames and smoke for a wildcat crew to get close enough to work on the rig, then that is still al ot of wind to deal with at your back! A very interesting Russian re-purposing of old T-55 hulls. The possibilities are almost endless. There are a few limits to what you can do with a demilled T-55 hull and what appears to be 2 × Dobrynin RD-7M-2 afterburning turbojet engines. Very nice build! Kindest regards, Dutch

they use the jet engines to blow water onto the oil well fire. It's certainly creative.

That's very unusual approach to modelling, but extremely well designed & executed
