Thanks for the kind words. Yeah thought that since I'm a bricklayer by trade an'all that...
But I also thought that most walls and ruins you can buy are too regular and straight and most of all thought of starting back in to modelling with the thing I had the most confidence in being able to get done in some sort of form.... O:o)
Next up were the finishing touches on the group of soldiers, something I am not too confident in yet, but it's all trial and error isn't it??
So here the guys that will make it onto the dio....

...and after, now with a nice shine...
PAK and gunners will be up tomorrow, and hopefully I'll have the final dio finished by dinnertime tomorrow just before the footie...
Thanks for having a look!

And the time has come to have it finished. Considering it's the first diorama and model/figures for about 25 years I am actually pretty happy. I'll have to work on my figure painting skills, fading eyesight and a not too steady hand will have to be compensated by the proper tools. Weathering is also something I slowly have to feel myself into, as are the Ammo colours. Dunno 'bout you guys but they don't really come out that great for me when I try to airbrush them.... Any helpful hints on that be appreciated...
Anyway, here's the so far finished dio....

Nothing really by the standard I've seen on this site, but I reckon I'll get better with every build, and after all it's doing and building it that makes this hobby so attractive to me.

Thanks for having a look, and double thanks for any help and pointers ye might wanna share with me...

Them juweela thingys... When I was trawling the interweb looking for some dio material I came across a shop in germany that sells all sorts of building material in scale. The manufacturer is a company, I think they're dutch, that do bricks, cobblestones, kerbstones and all that sort of stuff. They're called juweela and I ordered a rake of bricks and stuff, thinking it might be a great idea for detail. Never thought about the amount of work going into a yard of cobbled footpath though....
