As the truck now is close to be finished, my gaze turns towards the wonderful landscape of a wonderful country.
Yeah, I know. I have got some infantry to go on with, but at the moment I am way too lazy to continue those.
So I decided to start with the first "real" pieces of terrain.
In a spare parts box, given to me by a fellow wargamer, I found the remnants of a building which I figured would be fitting for my plans, so it is time to get myself into ....
Actually the building seems to be an 1/87 scale building, which lets it seem to be quite small related to the 1/72 scale soldiers. But who cares? It still is a building, so I just have to do some alterations to it to make it fit.
1st: changing door and windows. Those were in a very bad shape so I already broke the off and made new ones. I just need to add some stuff to make them fit into the overall picture.
2nd: chimney. It didn't have one, so I had to create one.
3rd: base: I just love bases, so it is obvious that this one is getting a base, too.
4th: changing the roof. Didn't like it, so I will change it. I have no idea how the new roof will look like, but definitely different.
Alright: So that is what the building looks like after the initial work steps.
Will be updated soon. I promise :-D
Oh, yeah - nearly forgot:
The truck is almost finished, I already told ya. But the overall steps I made, I forgot to talk about:
I attached a tarpaulin to it, as the original vehicle has, but also did some alterations due to my limited skills.
Then it was time to start the base. I decided to do it like a dirt road, which in my opinion is typcial for northern Gallia.
It still is under construction, but a little test fitting with the truck it may soon carry proved that it perfectly fits.
That concludes this update.
See you on the next one :-D
