This blog has been quiet for some time now, but it sure is not dead 😀 So this time I would like to present you the finished version of Morser Karl Great, along with its base and crew.
For this diorama, I try to capture the moment before the shot was carried out, the crew near the ammo are chillin’ from their work loading the ammo while they are waiting for the next command, and there are three people who are discussing the coordinates in front. The actual crew of Morser is much more than this, but due to financial limit, this is as far as I can go 😀
Building this beast was a total fun. This is my biggest military project so far. As for the technique that I’m using, there’s nothing new, most of the technique had already been applied in my Stug project. But in the case of the figure I use in this diorama, I did some re-position on them, cutting them, put it back together with epoxy putty and then carve it to make it look proportional. Still looks rough, but at least I know the basic…oh, and I still need to learn a lot about figure painting :p
This project was actually built for a competition on 25th of July, I already bring the kit to Jakarta where the competition is gonna be held, and all I need is to bring it to the venue on the submission date. But things have changed. It turns out that I am accepted in this company that I was applying to, and I have to go to other town immediately…There goes my first competition T_T…it’s not all sad stories though, at least I got paid for my first business trip ^^
Oh, and now I officially moved from my hometown, and I’m gonna stay in Jakarta for at least 6 months. I left all my tools in my old place, so there won’t be any progress for God knows when…but I’m not quiting this hobby, I just need some time till everything is settled. One thing I really love about my new place is that it is located near a hobby shop called “Peter and Partner” which is one of the biggest hobby shop in Indonesia..and I’m telling you man, the temptation to buy new kit is so hard when you live this close to a hobby shop..
