Tamiya : M13/40 Italian medium tank (converted to M14/41)
Alpine Miniatures : 350104 A Conversation in the Desert (2 Figures)
the M14/41 tank is made, it is arranged on the vignette along with
figures from Alpine and Tamiya that came with the tank kit. I
want this vignette to tell a story of a cooperation between Italian
soldiers and German paratroopers ( DAK Ramcke Brigade) under Rommel's command in the fight
against British in North African battlefield in 1942.
background is made from DAS modeling clay, fine grain sand and cat
litter sprinkled on top of the surface.
In order to integrate with
the Alpine figure, I had to make the top part of Tamiya figure from
scratch with epoxy putty from Tamiya and Alteco. It is painted with
Mr. Color from GSI and skin tone is done with acrylic paint.
