That's exactly what I was thinking about. A real bad weather scenario. My figures need those ponchos. Happily I have a book with a scetch and the meassures of these ponchos.

I decided to use bottle neck banderoles. Easier said than done. The first ponchos seems to be too short to look real.

BTW, the meassures of the ponchos are:

 

92" = 233,66cm = 6,7cm (1/35) x 66" = 167cm = 4,7cm (1/35)

That is so cool Lars. Now I'm really looking forward to see how these ponchos come out.

Great vehicles, Lars. I too like the poncho idea.

 

So this is going to be a 'wet' dio with wet/muddy vehicles  :). Looking forward to see how it's going to turn out.

Experiment failed. I absolutely don't like the result of my work. These ponchos simply look unreal. At the moment I don't know if and how to continue, grrrrrrr.

Well I'm sorry that you don't like the way the ponchos came out. Have you tried looking for pics of soldiers with ponchos, to try and get a better idea of how they should look? Just my 2 cents. Please don't give up, I really liked the poncho idea.
