10th Mountain, M-29 Weasel

Hey All, I’d like to present a diorama I finished a couple of months ago. This little vignette depicts some battle weary 10th Mountain Infantry soldiers and M-29 Weasel located somewhere in war torn Italy during WW2.

I used the 1/35 LZ Model kit shown: Except for adding some aluminum foil seat back pouches and dry transfer rubs from my spares box, the kit is built out of the box. The kit depicts the Weasel very nicely with plenty of detail. But Beware! This kit is tiny to say the least. Also, being entirely resin and photo-etched parts I would recommend having experience with both mediums before attempting this kit or you will soon be frustrated.

The figures are modified from the following kit shown.

Hope you enjoy….Until next time KEEP IT FUN!
