Day at the Beach
by Mike Goodwin
This diorama – Day at the Beach – is built around the Tamiya 1/35 T55. The setting is Iraq. I’ve the US guys surrounding the Iraqis and their T-55 in a dug out berm, which is a base made by Custom Dioramics.
The US figures are resin and are cast by Michael Roberts,. Their uniforms are done in OIF camo. The surrendering Iraqis are from Verlinden, as are the Palm trees.
Hudson and Allan made the barbed wire.
Mig Pigments are used throughout for weathering. Figures and the T55 were painted with Testors Model Masters. The chipping effect was achieved by scraping spots of paint off.
