Vietnam River Crossing
February 14, 2017 in Diorama
Tamiya 1/35 M48 Patton. Just finished this week. I was inspired by a photo I saw of a Patton crossing a very deep river, but modelling water scared me! Was recommended to use Woodlands Scenic Real Water so crossed my fingers and it worked (not without trial and error, and a few harsh words trying to sort air bubbles). I’m pretty happy with it, I wanted to have the whole crew on the turret as the loader/radio operator doesn’t have his own hatch but would not want to spend all day inside the tank in the heat. I also gave the Commander two 50cal machine guns as I have seen this set up in a few photos, and to be honest, if you have two gun mounts and a friend in the armory to get a second machine gun off, why wouldn’t you? I hope you enjoy looking. I just have to work on my photography skills now. Also cat wasn’t real happy I used his chair for back drop so quickly calmed it back once I was done, hence last photo!
