Nice work. I really like the whitewash you did and I think the colors are a spot on.

OUTSTANDING work ! Great whitewash distressing! Who's figures did you use ? BTW, nice work on them too! What did you use for your pine boughs?

3 out of 3 beers rating ! For subject, composition, over all quality build !
Thanks for sharing !

Thanks guys.

The figures are a combination of Alpine and Mini Art. I used the Mini Art heads but I should have replaced them. I wanted to see how I could paint them up. They came out okay. The loader is not the best - his eyes were not as well done. I do like the way the two Alpine figures came out.

The pine boughs are asparagus fern you can get at Michael's. They are not difficult to do. I have done this before. This time I decided to give The Scenic Factory a try - which are the same as described above. But in addition they are treated with a preservative.

The dio was made for the 37th Tank Battalion. They will be having a reunion this year where someone will get this. I still have a couple of tweaks to do. Add a pack of smokes. Dirty up the sitting guy's boots.

The trees are made in a way to remove them from the ground (plastic shaft for them to go into) so I can get this on a plane.

Great job! Creates a nice feel for the situation. I feel like putting on a coat.
