A collection of shelf queens and leftovers 1/35
When the shelf of shame gets too full and the leftovers box overflows things like this happen. This started out as a way to use up a bunch of stuff laying around that I did not want to toss, and I started working on it with no specific plan, just figure it out as I went along. I did go thru a couple of iterations with it, there were figures and vehicles I thought would be really snazzy that turned out to just not work at all for the scene.
Tamiya's Gulashkannone is in there, a sweet little kit I picked up on a whim and did not know what to do with so it spent about three years on the shelf. ICM's V3000S truck made it in as well; it went on the shelf 3/4 finished because it was a vicious, fiddly little thing I had no concrete plans for and got tired of fighting with. Figures are a mix of Tammy and MiniArt and I don't remember where the nag came from. The well is made of foamboard insulation covered with joint compound and the bucket tower is made of some Evergreen styrene I found last time I swept the floor under the bench.
I got to develop some new techniques while working on the project, not the least of which is how to airbrush a horse that does not look like a five year old did it. There's more than one coat of paint on it I can tell ya that
