Well hi everyone I have been a bit busy lately but have managed to get a bit of painting done. I said this year is to tidy up some neglected stuff so in doing so, I came across some mini sets and decided to paint them up while I’m doing more figures for the next WWII diorama of medium size, or maybe larger, you know I can’t be trusted!
I won’t waffle on today as I know you are all busy so I’ll jump right in. These kits are from Zvezda and they are designed for Gaming. They come on small bases that can accommodate a flag that’s provided. As you can see, I have omitted these and have just turned them into mini dioramas that I have mounted onto cheap spice jar lids (you will have seen me use these before). I have also made some bases out of air-drying clay and used just regular military figures I already had, one being the large one of WWII Brits in the desert. Some of the smaller ones I have mounted on plastic container caps filled with plaster, then spray painted and felted, very cheap and pretty stable.
I have a couple more Zvezda kits to do and then I will start making more of my own as the sets only cover Germans, Americans, Russians and Brits, anyway that’s the plan. Cheers Pat.
