In this updates i'll try to make a suitable base for the tank with all those 1/35 Jersey Barrier that i created earlier. This British Challenger 2 i'll try to show that its on a checkpoint randomly during the Ops Telic duration.
The main "ingredients" for my base are:
- White Styrofoam
- Wall filler
- A4 Photo frame
First we'll look at the base, i cut the white Styrofoam to fit the a ready made photo-frame that i purchased earlier.
Below is the base with the wall filler already applied on top of the white-styrofoam.
After that i would primer the base with some industrial surfacer and then with a layer of flat black as the base color. Also this would depict the road color.
As you can see, i try to lay some of the stuff that one can expect to find on a check point for example the Jersey Barrier, some pipes and some random stuff. (please ignore the bombs in the above photo, just something i test to make the base more lively).
Below are photos of the idea of the base with the Challenger 2 tank on it.
Other modeller suggested me to put some signs and some barbwire on the base.
I've already printed out some signs to test and also will try to make some barbwire and let see how it look on my base
p/s: i'm also currently paying the Single Player Campaign of the game Battlefield 3.... will write-up a short review when i'm done playing it... :o)
