Fantastic snow job.
Looks like you added a section or two of wrap wood or fence to the left of the Hotel building.Great details and high lights of the cobblestone streets
Yes, the bush looked absolute unreal with snow on it so I replaced it with a piece of fence. Before I'll add some more details I checked the positions of the figures today.

this is just brilliant , thank you very much for sharing and giving pin point advice on how to. Really appreciate it, thanks
Keep up the excellent work, looking forward to the rest

While your M36 details are awesome to say the least I am most impressed with your snow! This is the most realistic snow effects I have ever seen in a diorama. Even the details of the "drifts" of snow in the cobblestones of the street. What is in the "magic white snow jar" if you don't mind sharing.
Looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks very much, Dennis & Mike I can't add much more than I have already posted in posts # 90 - #96 of this thread. I "paint" the snow areas with a water/white glue mix and scatter natron all over the dio.

Hard to believe but it seems that I'm going to finish a dio within the same year I started with it, lol. Some more details to add but very soon...

One thing I will say about this dio: "Baby its cold outside."
Great work Lars.

That is great Lars, excellent work. Painting and reloading the vehicle is a great way to display it, very creative. Thanks for posting it.

I started and finished a dio within two months, well that's my personal modeling speed record!
I finally added some more details: The soldiers received goves, I added the tank's equipment and a civilian because I found the right side of the dio was kind of blank or boring. So here are the last indoor shots. It's snowing over here and i think I'll take some shots outside the next days. pic 1

Lars, that looks fantastic! I really like the story dynamic and your figure poses. Nice work painting those figures too!
I have one small question though; shouldn't there be some snow on the horizontal surfaces of the M36?
And congrats on finishing it so quickly!

Wonderful work Lars, but I have to agree with Terry, maybe a little bit of snow on the fenders or engine deck.
But everything else is on the money.

Spot-on, Terry & Manny. There has to be a bit of snow on the M36 as well. Not too much because the crew "cleanded" the TD before painting it....

Hi Lars, great dio! Very appropriate since it's snowing where I live. I also like the Kilroy graffitti
Posted 10 December 2017 - 06:16 AM
Thanks, Rene! I recently learned that Kilroy graffiti became popular during WW II.
I think this is a rather short-living graffiti, it will for sure disappear when "Sarge" checks the winter camo. Since you mentioned snow...
