Talk about biting off more than you can chew, or eating crow, ya buddy! I ain't ready to pass off the salt just yet, this is gonna be a biggin, and I'll munch a few birds to make this one happen, period!

I did an initial layout configuration just to see what I was dealing with and found it will pretty much take up the entire photo bench, Yikes!

Oh boy, gotta think this one thru thoroughly. Not that it can't be done, mind you, it can. I really need to study the dimensions and plan the structures carefully to bring out the figures and bikes, along with the veggies, of course. So, this is what we have so far, comments if you please, and don't be shy and thanks for watchin.

Cheers, Ski.





Don't be fooled, these are 200mm figs and bikes.


P.S. Finally got the bunker fired up and ready for the snow fly. It's time to keep sniffin paint and gluin them fingers together consistently and persistently!

Thx for checkin in Buddy, hope your Christmas was great too.

Good call, been working figure #3 and almost done, so your timing couldn't have been better. Just a few more details and a dull coat and I'll be posting pics, hopefully by the end of the week. I'm anxious to get this one done, but I have to tag the breaks and make sure I don't miss anything.

Thx for the kind words my friend. Cheers, Ski.

Finally finished figure #4, Verlinden Productions #2427, German Panzergrenadier Machine Gunner, Super Scale 200mm.

I used another head From ReeDees Miniatures, set HS-09-01, a much better selection from what came with the kit. Great work once again Stevo!

Weathering and final touches will be added once all the figures are set to the base, but for now, he's in the cabinet awaiting further orders, lol. All comments welcome and thx for watchin.

Cheers, Ski.

Thx Bro, and thx for checkin in. This face was a pain in the hind qtr, (it was pissin me off for a long time), scrubbed 4x's until it just barely hit the mark. I've never experienced such a situation with a figure head to date, just this one for some reason. Not exactly my favorite, but it'll have to do for now, lol.

Thx for watchin. Cheers, Ski.

Thx for checkin in Brother. Actually I just finished the firewood today, so between painting the basement walls, I'll be working figure #4 steady. I've done a bit on it and will post pics when the progress continues. Snow fly is on the way, yehaaaaaaa!

Cheers, Ski.

Howdy Yall,

Hoping 2016 will be another great paint sniffin, finger gluin, New Year for everyone.

Here's the R75 Driver in progress. Slowly but surely he's coming along. Still plenty to do, but here's an update Gents.







Still need to figure out the insignia on the helmets. Soon it will be time to knock out the punch list on all the figures and start basic weathering on the bikes, then that mighty base. Oh boy, what ever did I get myself into???

Cheers, Ski.
