Andreas, again a damn great build from your bench! Even if I would prefer a civil one with the huge whisky advertizing :D

Your ability to turn a model into a story is awesome.
Exactly my thought! Everytime if I see his models. And even more, if I see those pieces of art in real, like last time in Ried (Austria).

Cheers,
Frank

What you do with your figures will never cease to amaze me! Looking fantastic as does your initial painting on the vehicle .

Thank you very much Rick, Frank and Jeroen for looking in and commenting so nicely. Frank, the civil one is also in the queue, Miniart also released a bright red version with all its advertising — looking wonderful.

A first testfitting of the main components. i couldn’t resist getting a feeling of the final size of the model. And I have to construct the main components first before being able to adjust some sitting figures onto the top deck.


The contrast is going to be toned down more, there are several stages of filters and washings waiting...

Excellent work Andreas, this is shaping up to be another of your masterpieces.

When I was at the Great War Exhibition in Wellington, NZ in 2018, they had one of these vehicles on display. This photo may help with your model?

Thank you very much Dave, especially for posting this wonderful image. I love the idea of the khaki painted bus with readable, not removed advertising signs.

Some time ago I started to convert some figures for the bus. I was thinking about two or three... Meanwhile I have 23 of them. Stupid me. I have to paint them all...


For my figures I use a wide range of different figures from Mini Art, ICM, Masterbox and other manufacturers that I collected over the years. Then I change, cut and rearrange arms, legs, torsos and hornet resin heads, using Magic Sculpt and Green Stuff together with the formidable ICM WWI equipment sets to build up WWI figures. The smoking officer in the middle of the small group of already painted figures is a Black Dog resin figure, I only changed the head for a Hornet resin replacement. Frankenstein‘s laboratory is a Kindergarden compared to my working bench.

Best regards,
Andreas

Thank you very much, von B. and Richard!

Things go on slowly. But they do go on. I tried out Life Color‘s six jars of WWI british uniform colors and I really like them.




Meanwhile I painted 14 of my 23 figures.
Best regards

Your figure modelling is excellent, and I'm afraid I find those figures rather disturbing.

It's probably just me

Although I am not willing to harm anybody’s feelings, disturbance actually is an intented (side)effect when looking at my dioramas/vignettes. I think we must not forget that we are dealing here with one of the world‘s most brutal and cruel wars that ever took place on this earth. Also all these pretty airplanes we are modelling, were only designed and build for one single purpose: for killing people. War is madness, and I do not want to exclude this from my modelling, just to the contrary. When I browse through my display cabinet, I must say that death is the main actor in many of my dioramas.
That’s just my personal way to deal with the contradiction to have fun modelling something that in real life was no fun at all. But there are as many other points of view on this topic as modellers in the world I think.

In which case, I highly approve of what you are doing.
