The tarps look terrific and will be even better once painted! Overall awesome build!

Thanks for the comments folks!

Paul from Model Cellar has just sent me some of their newest figures for my project. They are a Holt Tractor driver, and a couple of artillery crew that come with various headwear to depict servicemen from the British Commonwealth. The figures are beautifully sculpted by Mike Good, and I'm looking forward to adding them to my eventual vignette.

As I get working on these figures I'll be posting some in-progress work on the construction and painting steps.

Cheers (and thanks to Paul!!),
Gary

Thanks Steve. For making tarps, I find the FIXIT works better than Milliput because it's not as "sticky". I roll the putty out on a pane of glass using talcum powder until I can get a workable thickness. I do use Milliput for gap-filling and other tasks, so each product has it's own purpose to me. I'm still trying to source some Magic Sculpt in a reasonable amount (200gm) without having to order it during our cold weather (which in Edmonton lasts from September until June). I've heard very good things about that putty.
Cheers,
Gary

I preparation for painting - a couple of the Model Cellar British artillery crew figures. I'll do the heads and bodies separately.
Cheers,

With my previous aircraft build complete I can now focus on the ResiCast 8" howitzer, and started that on the weekend. The wheels are a bit tricky to put together, but the assembly is quickly taking its stubby looking shape.
Cheers,
Gary

Some more progress on the 8" gun. The figures give a nice size perspective.

Very interesting construction! The PE struts seems to be a nice representation of the original wheels.

Cheers,

Good memories come back when I see this kit, which I had a great time with. I am keen on seeing it finished in your wonderful way. The Holt tractor is still waiting in my stash when my mojo with building WWI models comes back.
