Near the ruins

Gallery Article by  Alkis Paraskevopoulos on Feb 15 2012


I use the very old Tamyia 1/35 British SAS Jeep WW2 Kit (35033) for making this small diorama. I also use a small kit from Eduard and I didnít use the kits figures. The diorama is placed in North Africa and the unit is lost. They approach the old temple ruins with caution and then the driver got out in order to find out where are they. The co driver is astonished by the Egyptian hieroglyphics.

I also made several parts from scratch, like the nets and the wooden box on the front bumper.  I also make all the belts from the sacks and the small water canister between the co driver legs.  Painting and chipping was really a problem for me because itís actually my very first attempt in this scale.  I usually make WW2 planes in 1/48.

The wall (with the hieroglyphics) and the columnsí are resin parts but the base and the bricks are  scratch built. 

I hope you like it as much I did making it. Thanks for lookingÖ
