Out in the wasteland there are a lot of dangers, But two of the biggest are raider Abrams and deathdozers. The duo can be hard to manage and are rolling death machines. If you see them coming its best just to run away and hope they don’t see you.
Quick shot of my 1/35 Abrams redux and detahdozer. Wanted to get a shot of the size comparison as the deathdozer is freaking massive, dwarfing the Abrams tank (a pretty decent sized tank and model) its also kind of fun to see how I have improved over a course of a year or so. Anyways these two look great toghter and really are a highlight in my display.
*ruffles through ginormous inventory*
Lets see, med-kits, stim-packs, jerky... This is aid, need to organize this stuff like Fallout. Ah, here we go, weapons... Grenades, useless... Landmines, boring, sniper rifle, flamethrower, jeez, I got to much shit in here... Minigun, shotgun, sub machine gun, AH! Here you are, Gauss rifle now I... Ah hell, no ammo.
among other utility roles, the real d9r dozer also is used in conflict areas to knock down buildings. their pretty massive.
"the IDF developed "Noal Sir Lachatz" (ðåäì ñéø ìçõ "Pressure Pot Regulation") in which D9s and other engineering vehicles were used to bring them out by razing the houses; most of them surrendered because of fears of being buried alive, but some, including senior terrorists, were killed when the bulldozers toppled the houses over them after they refused to surrender" www.oocities.org/israel1mathkn…
really really crazy stuff IMO.
i would have to dig around for links, but i belvie the usa used the D9R similar during the battle of fallujah.
Hah... Now we have melee combat going on again - Artillery is too inhuman, send a dozer for destroying that building...
and thanks for noticing the photos. sometimes i have more trouble with getting a good set of photos than i do building the model. i recently upgraded my lighting, so its something i am still trying to figure out.
tracks are treated with pigments first. then for dirt/mud i used a mixture consisting of pigments,acrylic resin,plaster, real dirt and fine "wargaiing" flock. (sounds more complex then it is)
i use to do a much simpler method by mixing pigments(or pastel dust) with real dirty/fine soil and rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl alcohol).
it does not require much work or $$$ to get a simple set-up going.
I've been thinking about posting a lot less WIP pictures and focusing more on the finished stuff. Some WIP so that I'll have something to update once in a while. So upping my photo side would be a good thing for that.
this scream apocalyptic diorama... i hope at i see it!
