Re: More vines for Sicily

Great work Will. What did you use for foliage? And how did you get it to clump like that? CarlL The foliage is the Javis clump foliage, but the literally sticky part is smearing the glue across the top of the prunings and wire and then pressing it together. The break off any loose/badly positioned ...

Re: More vines for Sicily

Deutsche Volkssturm

I seem to be in a race with my mate Andy to finish sets we have shared and yet again he beat me to it. These are Mars figures and like many of their newer sets they are quite nice mouldings.
