An Airfix 1/76 Tiger will be scaleoramed to become a small tractor: very useful for paratroops to carry light to medium loads.

Remembering my childhood in '70s, I found these figures from one of the nicest Tamiya early figures boxes. A pleasure to build and paint. Only one problem: they are clearly undersized; they look to be 1/38 or even 1/40.




You can see the legs posture of one soldier has been changer in order to look seated.

Here I thought the “grey thing in the back” was a whale or something for the diorama!  ;D
This is looking really nice, carry on!

The thing I find with small scale ships is that you have to paint as you go and using sub components to build the ship up.

This is not too bad, not quite as finicky as some 20th century ship kits as far as teensy, weensy parts. Still there is a bit of detail that needs to be picked out as you build over it.
This is a test fit shot, nothing, save the main superstructure is glued in yet.


If nothing else, ships of this era did have a splash of colour. The grey thing at the back is the basis of the Airship that,if I can pull it off, will be tethered to the aft part of the ship. A sort of 19th C COD type craft.

So my mind's eye sees the ship anchored and the airship tethered, dropping off a recce report or something.

Yes!  What Gingie said, hard to believe that started out as a proper kit bashing.  Bondo is your friend!
