Hi Marcin,

I remember this from your original post and comments remain the same. You made a good effort on this one, was it your first little dio, I can't remember? Good use of the Tamiya figs and the dog adds a fun element.

Vinnie, thank you for placing my Vignette in Models On Display.

Alan, you may say it is my first "real" dio. Many years ago ,when my models looked more like shapeless toys I placed few of my models on simple groundwork (some static grass + a root from my parents' garden on a plain plywood). I made a simple pavewalk with piece of brick wall about 2 years ago to place Dragon's 1/16 figure, It was nothing special, just a 7cm in diameter piece of plaster.

Czolem Marcinie!

The tank itself looks great but what really caught my eye here is the setup of the scene. It's nicely balanced though simple and the dog is just a brilliant addition!

Keep up the good work!

Like the story your dio tells. The tanker lounging on the hull adds a lot.
In one of the photos we can see the .50 cal and its ammo box. Those metal ammo cans included a lot of (yellow) stenciling describing the contents. Small touches like including that stenciling adds a lot to the model. I use Verlinden waterless decalls (rub-on) to add it to my kits.

I still like the simpleness of it, and the human interest added with the use a of dog, and soldier trying to offer it a treat.
