Front Line Aid Station

January 10, 2014 in Armor

Starting with the base of the diorama I used a product known as Flexstone made from recylced rubber sold as stepping stones! After trying one out I was sold on the idea and most of my dioramas are mounted on these. They came through a garden center and now I can’t find any!
I added plain dirt and scenery material after coating the base with Elmers glue which was not at all harmful to the base. Further detailing was added with more scenery material.
The Italeri Ambulance and Heller 6×6 truck were fully painted with craft acrylic paints and weathered with washes of the same paints and dirt added in. The figures are a mixed bag from the spare parts box and painted the same way as the vehicles.
