That is pretty damn cool for 1/76 and I like the idea of the full run of plastic tracks!
My brother has a pretty good selection of 1/76 kits (mostly older Airfix and Trumpeter) but they all have the horrible rubber band type tracks.
Nice build there.
I remember having a pile of matchbox kits when younger, shame they have gone
Sounds like only a little weathering to be done, should look cool
look forward to seeing the finished model.
Powder wrote: The grass is from Noch - Summer Meadow Green - which was so bright as to be almost fluorescent. It might be fine for a model railway scene with brightly coloured figures having a picnic but after the glue had set I resprayed it with good old Humbrol 80 'Grass Green'. I applied the grass using a Noch 'Puffer Bottle'. It was my first time using it and while it worked really well, boy does it make a mess. For a diorama the size of the palm of my hand I needed a full size sheet of newspaper (A0?) under it to catch all the grass that was flying around.
Railway scenic materials come in some pretty bizarre colours. Good job with the static grass, it can be a huge pain. After doing some of the bigger scenes on my railway the garage is filled with the stuff.
Excellent build and nice little diorama base.
Very well done.
My preference - WW2 RNZAF & Pacific Theatre, Allied & Axis, ETO, Mediterranean, AFV & figures
I enjoy doing research
I love what you've done with this model Malcolm. It reminds me of the not nearly as well made models of my youth, simpler times, and there's something endearing about small scale models and dioramas. Fun.
