"Die Wanne" - VW Typ 166 Schwimmwagen
1 Attachment(s)
Recently finished this vignette of Schwimmwagen and it's driver. This is overall my second attempt to make a diorama-type of model. Tamiya base kit with Voyager photoetch were used for vehicle. Figure is Alpine's one. Several different paper plant kits were used for vegetation. The part I am most unsatisfied with this vignette, is water, as I wasn't able to get rid of bubbles and it doesn't look quite like I expected it would be. (But not also as bad as my worst nightmares were :P)

Here it is - this would be SSLAH vehicle in France, summer of 1944.

Wow, cool vignette. Excellent details and great photo layout.

I wondering what the 'background' story is with the "girls" blue bicycle?

Thank you for the post here on planetarmor.

Don't sweat the bubbles. Real ponds have bubbles in them.

Looks wonderful.

Excellent work. Love the blue bicycle to break all those green and brown tones.
