Just been catching up on this. Very nice work indeed. Will be a stunning little scene for sure when complete.

My only comment would be to perhaps add a little more weathing in the way of rust streaks on the landing craft? Otherwise - B)

I've just noticed how well you've done with the blood on the medic's hand and on the soldier. It is just enough to let us know yucky things are a foot, and yet doesn't look like an axe murder. Great.

Good layout, and you've nailed the rust on the tank traps too.

Thanks alot

I think the sand you get from landscaping places for sand pits is quite course,
You might have to go to Whangamata for the weekend if it's sunny
The sand on the sections (not the beach sand) has a pale yellow dirt mixed in it,
so it's finer & yellower.

I think I'll trial that with Charlieboys album glue stuff

kiln dried sand is a very fine sand no grit and is bone dry it fills up the gaps in the bricks when they have been laid just falls in the gaps and does not clog like ordaniny sand, you can use ordinary sand but put it in the oven or microwave first to dry out any moisture
3M'S spray mount is a aerosol can of glue very tacky when sprayed on paper and porous surfaces etc a word of warning it does not like non absorbent surfaces like plastic/styrene it does not hurt the surface but it takes a long time to dry.
hope this helps micky

but maarten it has the white/crushed shell? grit that birds use to digest there food in there crop kiln dried sand is pure finely sifted sand, in my case i just walked past a site where the guys were filling in the gaps in the paving and asked if i could have a 'big' handful which they gave me much better stuff IMO

Thanks for the tip, I've got a couple of Dio's I'm looking to build that required a desert setting. I used graded builders sand that I got the kids to sit and sieve for me (I paid them). but it wasn't that fine. I'll have to check out the local pet shop.

Beach airbrushed , then some washes with Nato Black . to get the shine on the wet sand , I'll give the darker area's some Klear polish after I work out where the edge of the surf will be , probably will follow the dark line just back from the drag marks

very nice steve you have captured that beach colour very well and the beauty of using the polyfilla? instead of sand is you can put the foot prints, scuffs, etc in as well
