T34 +SOVIET ASSAULT TROOPS

Postby builder76 » Mon May 08, 2017 11:00 pm

Hi Guys,
This was my first attempt at brick building-making .I did initially think about trying to build war torn houses but gave it up after a few attempts, opting for something more simplistic to attempt at the beginning. :think:
I then had to think what do I do with all the bricks I had made. After a picture internet research on the web, I came up with the idea of doing a dio (after changing and revamping the whole dio 3 times,) I finally came up with the current destroyed housing look, plus tank & troops..
The T34 deserved to have some troops accompanying it ,so I used the Soviet Assault Troop Kit by Italeri as well.
Hope you like my contribution to the WW2 "allies" theme, having previously done an American & British dios. :D

John

ps I have posted some further information on this build in Modelling Know How forum. See..BRICKS & BUILDING ;)

superb Dio John :clap: :clap:
bet the machine gunner lost his hearing for a while after the 3 inch gun went off
brick rubble came out really great, very realistic results.

Thanks for your comments guys they were much appreciated. :D
When I get back in the autumn to building dios again I will try to incorporate more bricks ,perhaps venture into half destroyed buildings etc. :think:
Yes Casp I expect the machine gunner did have a ringing in the ears from the T34 recoil. :lol:
No health & safety at work where they were..LOL :roll:
