As I’ve hit a slow patch on my ‘Carrier Crossing’ build I decided to give some thought to my next build, and to get the boulder rolling, .
I have the Italeri 1/35th Staghound MK1 in my stash and have always thought it a mean looking armoured car, and read that its debut was in Italy. The latter tied in with wanting to have a go at modelling a rocky setting.
Below is a very rough sketch of what I’m imagining.
And below is the basic foam substructure.
As with my previous builds I am limiting myself to an A4 size footprint, with the height also being limited to an A4 size. Once the glue has set I’ll start roughly carving to shape before building up the rocky texture.
If anyone has any good images of Italian mountain roads from the 1940s…± a decade…they’d be greatly received, .
