Re: Fantastische 1/72er Figurenmaler

This very well modelled, painted and executed diorama seems to be based on the painting, ‘ Black Watch at bay’ by William Barnes Wollen. I personally like the ‘dusty’ look of the figures. There is a real feel to the action on display in my opinion. His Grace, Sir Thomas and Gordon are lovely too! Be...

Re: ANTIETAM 17th SEPTEMBER 1862

The rebuilt building is nearly ready to go apart from some touch ups revealed by the pictures. I have commenced the lower section which will sit in the sand as per the original. https://i.postimg.cc/k5VpSdsy/572-BC117-A747-40-CB-B950-F51-C909-CCA44.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/1X0TzcBh/0-F907-E0-F-9-AE6...

Re: ANTIETAM 17th SEPTEMBER 1862

Back to the drawing board! I must firstly thank everyone for their kind words of encouragement. It is the support and suggestions of the forum that keep up the levels of motivation. I mulled over the discrepancy and thought why spoil the ship for a half pence of tar? https://i.postimg.cc/wxmFQNGY/73...

Re: ANTIETAM 17th SEPTEMBER 1862

I have now added the roof, chimney supports, outside chimney, gutter etc. The dormers, as usual are a nightmare. Getting a realistic look is problematic as I do not want them taking over the roof space. I have therefore used some smaller plastic windows from the spares box with additional framing. T...

Re: ANTIETAM 17th SEPTEMBER 1862

Limbers and caissons I have been investigating limbers and caissons with the wonderful Adkin, ‘Gettysburg Companion’ book being very useful indeed. There are some lovely models around but they are not cheap so I have experimented with modifying the Revel and Imex items of which I have a lot from man...

Re: ANTIETAM 17th SEPTEMBER 1862

I have now added the railings, columns from sprue, painted the inside, test fixed the roof and commenced building the outside chimney. The current property, like the Mumma Farm has a galvanised roof which I was not sure about. I thought that the properties had been restored to their 1862 look by the...

Re: ANTIETAM 17th SEPTEMBER 1862

Confederate Divisional commanders and ADC’s I have been cutting, swapping and chopping and am quite pleased with the results so far. My painting ability is nothing compared to some on the forum but I think they convey a good image and as a bonus are much easier than Highlanders! https://i.postimg.cc...

It was fighting Indians with A S Johnston and a certain R E Lee that he received the first of many wounds, a Comanche...
