    Herbst, nice use of modelling.

    Saw this video of the end title sequence to a First World War film, got some great scenes and uses of lighting and focus. Some historical inaccuracies but we'll let that slide.

So I decided to have a go at making my own out of bits and bobs, mainly tamiya and dragon left overs with lashings of milliput. I intend to make a diorama with the zombies, thinking them...

    Hey guys, Does anyone know of 1/35 scale zombie figures? I have had a look on a few sites with no success. Would love to do a diorama of a zombie invasion, ideally WW2 but would be willing to go modern depending on the zombies attire, think a lot of fun could be had. Found this site with some...

    I am still fairly new to modelling (1 year) but felt the challenge of a commission build too irresistible to turn down. I had a part time job at a model shop (model zone, quit a couple of weeks ago to concentrate on uni) where I met a chap that wanted a model for a friend as a present so I...
