Hi Fred, and thanks for the kind feedback, it’s much appreciated,
The camo netting is an open weave bandage (the white stuff in the image below) soaked in diluted white glue, and the ‘hessian’ strips are thin paper stuck to the bandage and then soaked in diluted white glue until it droops over the hull/turret.
I spent quite some time trying to find camo material, I’d read about open weave gauze bandage (the white stuff above) in an old modelling book, but found it difficult to source until I found some at a reasonable price on a well known online site named after a river. There might be better and more in scale options out there but works well enough for my basic skills in 1/72nd/76th.
The black stuff I use for 1/35th, as you can see it’s a slightly larger weave, again found on the same site being sold as a material for Halloween costumes, it came in a very large sheet for next to nothing…it’ll last me the rest of my model building lifetime for sure, .
The hay pile is a lump of DAS painted a dark yellow, in turn this is covered with yellow static grass, and then shadowed and highlighted with oil paints, the pitchfork/tools are from a cheap laser cut balsa set, they’re a bit ‘flat/2D’ but work fine at a quick glance, but I have sent off for the Langley stuff you suggested, to use where a more 3D feels is needed.
Thanks again, and cheers, ,
