The sweet Dust Game KV-47/B ''Flaming Turtle" is a perfect model to mix WWII with Sci-fi. Casted in grey resin the build of this one was a walk in the park. All the details are very crisp and there's almost no flash on the parts. The legs are provided in a dynamic running pose so you don't have to cut bones add wire and put them in a dynamic pose cause it's already done for you.
Thnx Paolo Parente you did a very good job on this one!
So I decided to put this steel runner in a Berlin '46 scene accompanied by some splendid Tamiya Russian assault figures. Thnx Tamiya for this lovely figure set. You did a very good job as well.=+)
On top of the small base blue foam, plaster parts, debris from Dio-creations (thnx Rob Trommelen =), balsa wood, Plus model Cobble stones & leaves were all glued together with PVA glue. After some layers of paint it was extensive threatened with different pigments, acrylics & inks.
Finally some superb 1/35 made barb wire from RMG was added.The crushed barrel is made from lead foil and capped with a Tamiya fuel drum part. Again the oil puddle was done with Tamiya Smoke excellent stuff to do this job.
The Flaming Turtle was pre-shade, shaded & post shaded with an Iwata HP-C plus aibrush using Tamiya acrylics & thinner. After a layer of Purity Seal from the Games Workshop the weathering was done with Liquitex acrylic ink. The metal effect on the flamer is done by using metal powder from Uschi van der Rosten.
Those 3 Russian figures are from the sweet Tamiya Russian army assault infantry set. The heads are replaced with ones from Hornet. All figures are painted entirely using acrylics from Vallejo & Games Workshop. Never "did" Russian before and painting these ones was a real pleasure. Tamiya figures from the 90s' highly recommended as ever!
