1⁄48M8 Armored Car (Greyhound)
On for some Recon!
This is my recent diorama depicting a US M8 Greyhound crew on a recon mission.
The dio' is in 1:48 scale, and I have used the following kits to build it:
- Tamiya M8 Greyhound and sd.kfz 250
- Blackdog M8 stowage
- ICM 222 turret for the 250
- Verlinden Barn & base
- Plus Models supplis
- MIG figures
The vehicles were painted with Tamiya colors and gear & figures painted with Vallejo colors. The whitewash was done by brush using varied thicknesses of white paint. Mig pigments were used on the barn and road after painting. The snow was snow-coat. Then, melted snow, wet street and barn walls were done with Model Master clear varnish. Vallejo still water was used for tiny puddles and slush.
