I managed to get some headstones 3D printed. Hopefully I can get around to painting them this weekend and I will post pics.
Nice... I've always wanted to build a diorama... Only trouble is that it takes up so much space.

Looks really good. I don't mean to be rude, but is it on purpose that the grass is laying down?

Thanks! No, my static grass applicator is cheap and it really didn't agree with the longer grass flocking. I'm going to keep adding layers to try to tease it so that it will stand up hopefully. But my idea is that the cemetery is overgrown due to the war. By the time I add the additional headstones, figures, and some other bushes and stuff, most of the actually grass will be more broken up.

Makes sense...

I totally get the look you're going for. Be a shame if the grass isn't what you imagined.

Was home sick today and bored, so I was working on my Tamiya Stug Iv. This is the old 1974 kit. The muffler is just sorta sitting in place, not glued on crooked. I'm using the RB Models barrel and I have RFM individual link and length tracks, but having a hard time getting them to fit to the Tamiya sprockets. I may end up just using the Tamiya rubber bands.

Well, well, got off my lazy arse and got some work done. Painted my 3D printed stuff, started messing with figures, and really thickened up the grass work. More to come soon.
