FlaK Barge

  • Title_Pic1
Flak Barge

Model was built using sets:

* Verlinden 2369 Cargo / Flak Barge (resin kit)
* Verlinden 1037 German Infantry at rest ( resin, I used only one standing figure)
* Verlinden 1693 Military Cargo German WWII ( resin barrels
* Dragon 6288 2cm Flak 3
* Armo 35708 - 2cm Flak 38 alluminium barrel
* Voyager ME-A039 - sheels to 20mm Kwk 30/38 and Flak 38
* Vallejo 26230 Still Water ( imitation of water )


My base for that stage was picture from box of Verlinden's barge. All parts was painted using tamiya XF-1 Black matt, and after that I painted all "woody" elements using sandgrau ( Lifecolor UA 203 RAL 7027 ), and shaded that parts using rotbraun ( Lifecolor UA 205 RAL 8017 ) - also I used that paint to paint camouflage on flak 38 plates.


As you see, I used Vallejo Still Water in 3 stages (layers). Wood base was painted with green, brown and black paints, to create bottom of my mini river. In next stage I used horsehair to reproduce long water grass. I also cut the barrel so it looks like floating on water. And Finally I create Water Lillys, I used thin polistyrene sheet, i cut small ovals, painted by green paint, and that white plants I created from real buds of flower, very small, and I don't know what is that plant.
And briefly that's all.

I like a lot, a large membership among the high quality of work and history to represent. sometimes do not need a large amount of material to do a great job Domi

It's Beautifully done, love the pond water. Looks like real depth to it, but why so many Oil Barrels?
