About Costas Rodopoulos (Major_Goose)

I started modelling 27 years ago with some 1/72 planes and military vehicles. Soon the diorama bug got into me and with Sheperd Paynes books I dug in. I loved to build dioramas and military vehicles till the Vietnam Era. I don't like modern stuff so much. 4 years ago I had a crush on figure painti...


It is so good to see this nice diorama as a On Display feature. I know the big effort Costas spent for this diorama and the stress he had for the color of M113. This is a very special diorama for me because it started a very good friendship between the 2 coasts of Aegean sea. Congrats adelfe moy and thanks Scott for the link.

Indeed a nice dio Mjr-Goose. So much little details keep the eyes happy. What about those coke cans? How did you do them? Over all a nice compact scene with plenty to look at and all layed out very well. The only extra I would like to see is more pictures from an eye level. Most of what is on shoe is ariel photographs. Time to get the camera out again!

Guys thanks a lot for your good words (in English and Greek also !!) Engin : you know the whole effort and all besdie the dio so ..no more to say than thanks kkeefe: Our friendship is a fact and may it spread as you say Plasticbattle :The coca cola cans were thin aluminium foil (from a baby food cover)cut in oblong squares, then rolled them glued with super glue and painted with oils. Fow painting there is the option of Verlindens prints but i wanted to do it my way. Verlinden has pre printed stuff on carton that you cut roll and glue and is ready, but the metal stuff is better !!! heheheh M113: Thanks for your good words. I believe only the armor should please u alone (seeing the names!! hehehe) Thanks for inspiring me to do more and better
