"Surprise Attack" the figures

 As promised, I'm posting in progress pics of the "Surprise Attack" 1/72 WW1 trench diorama. This post deals with the work done on the figures. Most of the figures started off as Preiser WW2 German soldiers. I was afraid I would run out as these were hard to come by, so I made resin copies of one of the sets. They appear as brown color in the photos. The grey ones are the actual Preiser figures in plastic.

More "Surprise Attack" Pics

 Here are a few more pics of "Surprise Attack". It's the old matchbox 1/76 FT-17 kit that I have been building for several years. The Flyhawk kit had come out just around the time I was finishing the diorama, and I did, however briefly, considered swapping to the new kit. Sanity prevailed and the matchbox kit made it to the final diorama. Figures were modified from Prieser WW2 german figures.

"Surprise Attack!" 1/72 WW1 trench diorama

Here's a preview photo of the completed FT-17 diorama I titled "Surprise Attack!". I finished this about a year ago but I've only found the time to post photos here now. I will post more photos here soon, but in the meantime you can see photos on our Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/Orange3dMiniatures/photos_stream?tab=photos_stream

Cylon Raider

Did a quick build of this old school Revell/Monogram Cylon Raider from the original BattleStar Galactica TV series. It's a fairly old kit with a some flash and gaps to fill. Otherwise the detail looks great and was quite fun to weather.

I'll post more pics soon.
