Thanks alot

Polyfilla's thick " Large gaps and Cracks " turned out better than I thought it would .
It dried with a fine gritty surface , but with the look of wet sand thats right on the waters edge

You'll need to come along to one of our club meets and give us a demo of how you do it. We're meeting this Thursday if you want to come along, I've sent you a PM.

Rude word that's good. You've nailed it. I know there isn't a shot of it, but what does the back of the guy whose been shot look like? You probably need to add a reasonable sized blast hole (or two) out the back from the MG 42 rounds. Not huge, but larger than the front holes. Gee it looks good.

Looks fantastic Steve! You should be really proud of that one!

The only suggustion that I have would to add a little bit of red in the water where the GI is floating...

Superb B) I especially like the wet trousers etc, adds to the realism. Man, those guys are taking a hammering, they'll be lucky to make it up the beach!!
I think the blood in the water from the floating G.I. is quite accurate for a head shot, I'd expect more from a heart, major artery, liver or other organ, but I'd say he took that one between the eyes - never knew what hit him. R.I.P
My only critical comment would be that the Landing Craft pilot is either really stupid or really brave, I'd be stooping as low as I could with all that lead fling around :dry:
An awesome result Woods, that is talent mate !!

Thanks for the comments everyone ..I am really happy with the way it turned out

I did'n have any body parts in my spares box that I could use to modify the pilot , because of the
type of clothing he has on , but if I come across any later that has similar Navy style clothes , he'll be changed.

one of the nicest diorama's i have seen with a water effect that sells it for me, it looks so realistic the shades of paint you have used really capture this effect nicely. top job steve.

Hi Woods - That is a very powerful dio... fantastic work and very emotive. Same kind of feeling that the opening of Saving Private Ryan evoked. Great work sir.

It's a pile of crap really we're just being nice :P
But seriously I'd love to see a proper how to, you know maybe a bit of a video clip or just a bunch of photos showing each step and the materials used. This opens up a whole new field in modelling, especially as you're also stuck on this island and not too far away from me so the materials must be out there.

It's lovely mate! But one thing though. I feel that the Czech hedgehogs seems to be floatin' on the beach instead of bein' one with the beach. But that's just what I feel.

After looking at it again , I see what you mean . Won't take much to sort out , a bit of thinned plaster , and let it run around the concrete feet

:P :lol:

I was going to get my wife to take some photos as I do it ( making the surf that is ;) )
I started mixing the paint into the silicone when I remembered about the camera , got to work fast with the silicone once mixed , it starts to set up and lose it's plyability pretty quick .

Next time I try something like this , I'll be abit more organised and do a step by step.

All of the stuff I used is Selley's "Glass" for windows and aquariums . just make sure you have plenty of ventilation and a decent respirator , it does let off some fumes when used in large amounts.
Most of the smell has gone , so just seems to be strong while it's curing.
I added aprox 2.5mls of Acrylic Olive Drab to get that shade of green.
Once it was spread out and everything set in place , I used a small flat brush and dabbed on the white water , for that I used some stuff called Jo Sonja's Texture Paste , for adding texture and 3D effects to art work.
Finally for the wet look by the waters edge , I brushed on a couple of coats of Johnson Wax " Klear Floor Polish " also brushed some on to the figures for the wet clothing
