Thank you. I have stuck the base onto some foamboard for support. I've also dropped more plaster around the building base. This looked a bit bare for such a damaged building so I have been trying to make some broken wall bits. I found some expanded polystyrene and sliced it a bit thinner, then dropped some plaster on it. I also poured out a bit of wet plaster directly onto the scrap paper to about the right thickness. Once dry I scraped the plastered surfaces flat.
Image

I painted them up like the building. The bit of plaster on its own was useful to break up into smaller bits of rubble. I think I'm about done with the base now. I need to try matting it so it doesn't all break off (the plaster obviously goes wet but dries out again as it has done with the glue)
Image

The figures are drying from their wash. I've attempted casting some jerrycans from resin. That just leaves vehicle dry brushing, stowage to add, kubel windscreen and matting to do.

Thank you that is high praise indeed :D The figures are done. They are quite nice compared to other Airfix figures included with kits but the guys in the car are much smaller than those standing. I'm not sure what the officer is meant to be doing, possibly gesturing his feelings toward high command? :joker:

I scratched a jack, painted the jerry cans I cast and added some other stowage from spares. Attachment points and can "racks" were added from masking tape. The mirror for the kubelwagen really is made but will be added after matting and windscreens to avoid damage. Nearly done!
