Started building a mobile pigeon loft from WW1 - the only version that's available is 1:72 and that just won't let me add enough pigeons.

It's starting to come together, I still have a few big components to build but I am starting to focus on laying in more detal.

I figured out a simple but effective technique to make it look like your model is covered in bird shit, take that mig jiminez!

Good shit indeed. 😄
Real lovely work, Zach. 👍 The pigeons themselves are great, too. They have nice colour transitions.

figures are coming together, although I messed one up and I have to repaint it luckily it's a resin figure so I could just strip the paint off with laquer thinner. I added the reference photo of a french version of this vehicle that made me fall in love with this, as soon as I saw the guy with the bird on his head I knew I had to make this.
