Thank you, Kurt!

I added some details on the cart, which didn't like how they were molded-two latches on the front panel, metal braces on the wheels from aluminium foil.
Painted and drybrushed with various acrylics.
Next-oils, rust and weathering.

Thanks, Jerry!

Miniart farm cart-looking very nice, especially the wood grain. Although some cleanup is needed, mainly on the wheels. I didn't glue the small parts yet.

Nice additions ! You also managed to avoid the even spacing of things most of us fall victim to. Looks very "Normandy" I think.

I added Mininatur Ivy and tufts with blossoms (summer), here and there, very easy to use

This should be a feature on Armorama when you are finished.



Will do that, thanks!

Incredible work. The groundwork is just busy enough to not be too overwhelming. The figures and Tiger fit perfectly. I'm not sure I would be able to resist liberating some apples, as I march along.



Thanks!
Be careful with the apples though, too much and you will get in trouble

Hi Venelin,
Your creation is coming along very nicely. The figures and tree are outstanding. I especially like the third photo with the Tiger — nice perspective, balance, and dynamics. Keep up the great work!

Cheers!🍺

I put the apples, greener and smaller, as recommended. I will add also poison ivy on the building and the fence, some tufts with blossoms etc. But this later

Thank you!
Third and final try with the apple tree, this time I used static grass for the smaller branches and sprinkled the Noch leaves. I think this is the best looking, only have to put the apples



Cheers!
