“Shoes”, Unknown beach in Croatia, 1996
Now this one is a bit different.
I saw a "Car with nice chick" scene at a show recently. In 1/24 scale there are very nice pin-up models available. Sitting with a T-34 with interior and a wreck on my mind i decided to create a variant of this.
T-34-85s were used in the Balkan wars and I thought this was a good enough background to place a piece on a Croatian beach.
Behold my "Tank wreck and chick" scene! I spent a lot of time detailing the blown up interior and needed to make sure my viewers didn´t miss it. This is why the lady have dropped her shoe….
Build was straightforward. T-34 was built but many parts were replaced with metal and plasticard to detail a blown up tank. I painted and weathered the interior before wrapping the entire tank with thin plastic film. Then follow Das Pronto air drying clay into which i sculpted traces of water flowing around the tank. On top of this I applied Ammo of Migs "Beach Sand" Acrylic paste to get proper structure. Water is created using the same technique as for my other dioramas on iModeler. I e plasticard surface and polycarbonate plastic sides.
