It was very unfortunate for the project that I received an invitation for the beta test of World of Tanks. It's pretty fun driving tanks around on small 15 vs 15 battlefields :)
It is a bit like counterstrike, just with WWII tanks.
Won't keep me long, but it is fun ... and did steal quite a lot of my hobby time.
Luckily they have a server standby for a few days for the new patch, so that gave me back the time I needed to complete the Tiger Taxi.
First I completed Petty Officer 3rd Class Filsinger (he was 90% completed anyway, so just some minor highlighting).
Then I mounted him in the door of the CHARON.
Cool dude :)
Next up was the little tug - the Hooker
That one was also 85% completed and only needed some weathering and damage.
Looks pretty cool.
And that completes the diorama.
So here's a fly-around with all actors in place:
And a bit closer:
With a bit of a backdrop - I love this perspective!
And in the cabinet.
I hope you enjoyed the build and I wanted to thank you all for your help, comments, feedback, encouragement, and brilliant suggestions.
I already have the next project aligned - Code name: NIGHTHAWK
This will really be 100% ON the ATHENA and not stand-alone like the CHARON. I'm still in the planing stage, but close to begin building ... lets just hope the WoT servers reamin offline a few more days *grin*
