Hi all made a start on the next one, this will be set prior to the trenches one so will basically be a muddy field.





The depression in the middle will be filled with muddy water .

Hi all here is how I did the explosion I got the idea from Ian W I've changed the method a bit but this is basically it, obviously it needs colour and smoke yet but this is the basic start of it.

Hi all well since Mike wants these done for after the Xmas break I thought I better have a go at my worst subject the planes, I've started with the easiest and this will be the crashed one, I've done a mock up of how I visualise it, I've borrowed the the battlefield dio base for this, when I do the Base I'm figuring on doing it in a grassy field or corn field with the Victor flying over.

Did they have parachutes then as if they did maybe I will have the pilot somewhere in it gliding to safety.

Fantastic work! I admire your attention to the environmental detailing and the explosion effects are so utterly cool.

Hi all I did say planes were my nemesis, here is where I'm at, now, I don't know why I have so much trouble with planes.



This is a simple plane I've no idea how I'm going to cope with the rigging on the tri plane, still trying to get my head round the rigging on this one.

The smaller the plane,the less need for perfect detailing. A few very fine wires can give enuf of an effect. I've been reading one of the mysteries (Jacqueline Winspear, author) set in 1930 where people still carry the emotional and physical pains from the war. Thanx once again.

Awesome stuff! The 'dirty' cotton really captures the freeze frame moment of an explosion

Hi all well the first one in the series is done I've put the two together since that is how they will be displayed, I'm quite pleased with the outcome so far.

These will make a stunning display. A good history lesson that should make an impression on the students !

Brutal, dismal, violent and catastrophic - truly captures the horror. I feel weird using an adjective like 'beautiful' to describe this but it is that and so much more.

Hi all, well I've finished one of my nemesis's, the first plane, I know I'm rubbish at them but I think this would be OK in an infant school, hopefully the older kids will take pity on me as the first two dios are OK.
