Another Covid project. This is going to be a small figure vignette depicting the Combat Engineers laying mines in the road way near the town of St. Vith in December 1944. The figures are all my typical mish-mash of parts bashed together from the parts box, DLM Dragon, Tamiya, Miniart, Masterbox, resin, etc.
The land mines are from the old Tamiya figure kits. Each set of figures always had a few of these mine included on the sprue. I never used the mines, they are not real detailed, and over the years I just tossed them in the parts box. I had about 30 of them and finally, having a lot of time to kill, I decided to do something with them. This whole vignette evolved from those little lumps of plastic. The crates are scratch built from bass wood and coffee stirrers. The markings on the crates are not correct, but all I had were some old ammo box dry transfers. It's not 100% correct, but it gets the idea across.
The other photos are reference I found online to help with the poses and placement of the figures.
Depending on how long all this lasts I am going to try and do one of these little vignettes or vehicle models for each Division. We'll see how that goes.
Anyway, thanks for looking, stay safe.
