Hello all..., thanks for taking the time to leave the comments guys, really useful.
Karl - You were right about the research, but it was all really interesting, you really felt for the Polish who suffered immensely, having there hopes raised, particularly by the soviets, only to then be left to it on there own. To be ultimately defeated by the Germans, & for the Russians to then just stroll into Warsaw in early 1945 & claim it for themselves, thank you very much !
Jerry - Haven't you seen the new Miniart kit, the one with the German infantryman with 2 heads, it's quite popular.....
Hopefully the next few newer photos will explain all, & make sense of the scene in the cemetery.
Bob - Thanks for the 'new figures' advice, that threw a spanner in the works! Have never come across that make before, & looked up the figures of the children. Thought I had everything (& everyone) sorted, though there was no place to put them, then thought they 'could' go in the 2 smaller rooms at the back of the building, warning the guys outside of the Germans breaking in......but I would have to change the heads (facial expressions)....,& then 'my' head hurt....
Mike - Hopefully as I explained the POW with 2 heads makes abit more sense now, but thanks for the input....!
So the update now is the addition of 6 more AK guys. The ones in the blue shirts are Miniart's German Tank Crew, but with changes to the poses, new arms & a new head. The 2 in the cemetery, with the rifle threatening the POW & the one on the gate are MK35. There's a slight size difference between some of them, but I guess that would be a natural thing anyway.
I still have bits to do, fill up the halftrack with more provisions, put some oil filters on the rubble etc.... As for the cemetery, I sprinkled some fresh grass, added more flowers. Still need to cover up afew RIP's, as they weren't appropriate to the location. Painted the cemetery sign a lighter grey to hopefully make it stand out more.
Really pleased with how this last guy turned out, his facial expression, his demeanor really suited the scene. MK35 really do some nice civilians.
Going to start working on the building interior next, just the 5 more figures to add (perhaps no running children Bob
) Thanks for reading, any more advice, ideas as always welcome.....
