  • 'Anything Goes' Diorama

    OK fellows. Its been ages since I last posted here. Lots of things going on in my life as well as working on 1/24 scale civilian models. Have not posted anything armor related in such a long time. So this is my latest acquisition.

    I had intended this little dio to be a IOF dio but decided to go for the 'different' approach, as always. Yep. For those who know me, it will not come to a surprise. As my middle name is exactly that. Anyways,this scene represents a Libyan resistance fighter firing at Gaddafi's last loyal militant forces, somewhere down the streets of Tripoli.

    'Anything Goes', is the name of this diorama. I got the idea from the pic someone had posted a long time ago. When I saw

    it I knew I wanted to model it someway and somehow, my way. It just shows that anything is possible, although not very practical; it just shows that anything can be used to their advantage at any time when the need arises.

    The longest and most strenuous part of this diorama was putting this figure together. First, I like the thank Bassam I. Mansour, for his suggest about using different body parts from different kits. One kit he suggested was, "Charlie on the left" from Master Box, Vietnam figure kit as a start. So thatäs what I did. The other kit I used was a body part(torso) taken from the Meng Hi lux kit, which included a one figure, if I remember right.I am no figure builder pro nor am I a figure painter pro.

    So this was a project with lots of miss and hits. But I keep telling myself, that I will improve. Just needs more and lots more practice. But so far, I am happy with the results. I also noticed some areas on the figure that needs some touch-ups of paint and also some toning down. So, yes, I do notice it and it will be rectified.



    So I hope you like the completed dio, aside from the figure not being up to standard.



    Here is the pic that inspired me to build my version:

          Great theme. I've seen a few technical vehicles and this is one step further in theme.
