 I did some work on getting the second figure into primer so I can at the very least do some painting this coming week.  He is a Aerobonus figure and is slightly shorter than the Tamiya/Verlinden hybrid. I'm not too fussed as I like having different shapes and sizes of figures on the diorama as it looks a bit more realistic.
My task for today was to try out another way to do trees.  Materials to try were, Seafoam with scatter material for leaves.  While I didn't have exactly what was outlined to hand I made do with what I had and worked as best I could.  
Here is my progress;
I have to say that I think I like this one better.  A shame really as the paper one took ages to make.   I have to spray some light yellow-green and to add some highlights and finish with a shot of Dullcoat but I think I looks more to scale.  
What do you folks think? 
Thanks for looking in.

A day above ground is, in my opinion, a good day.  :D

    Nice change.  This tree looks a lot more realistic to me.

I like this a lot! The tree looks indeed very realistic as does the rest and the added details to the flak are very nice as well.

I've been thinking about building a small 1/48 vignette like this a well. So I'll keep a close watch on this.


Can you tell where you got the figurines? They look quiete good, especially the one where you replaced the head.

Looks as detailed as a 1/35 figurine.

Looks good, Dan. I think this tree looks better in terms of the amount of foliage to trunk size.
