1⁄700Somewhere in the Pacific...
LST operations in Southern Pacific...While building my latest diorama "Getting ready for another Mission" I have used some 1/700 GMC truck from Skywave/Pitroad US Navy LST set. Of course, this is the result of my experimentation on trying to make a different naval diorama, without a pier, buildings, but trying to make a small scene full of action, without being overdone. Materials used to make this diorama:
- Skywave/Pitroad US Navy LST set (trucks from three sets); - Battlefleet Models resin Observation/Barrage Balloon set; - GMM fine raillings and ladders (from the spare box); - L'Arsenal single and double 40mm Bofors guns; - Eduard 1/700 Figurines; - Tauro Models paper flags. Scratchbuilt items: - Beach with Das Pronto modeling Paste; - Palm Trees / Coconut Trees with brass wire (various thicknesses), Tamiya Tape (trunk) and Aluminum Foil (Leaves); - Guns tubs (all of them) and some superstructure parts with Evergreen Plastic Card and PE sets "borders"; - Vertical ventilators from aluminum tube; - Sea is artists watercolour paper, painted with acrylics and with several coats of gloss varnish; - Wave is Gel Medium (Gloss).
