Thanks guys. I am getting a ton of help on this project. Heath is designing a number of detail parts for 3d printing. Sample of some 6" shells.

Lot's of hand made sandbags we needed.
Paint and roof to follow.

Yikes, I'll bet that was a whole lot of snakes cut into sections.

Terrific.

Looking forward to seeing this progress. I really liked the photo you are working from and it should be great in model form.

I have formed over 1000 additional sand bags but I thought that would be boring to post.
I have also started sorting out coupling the cars. Again, boring to post.
I do have a forum member Ron Newby (Elwood Blues) who is temporarily living in Gaston NC coming over on Sundays to help me build stuff.
We started experimenting with static grass. If you feel like joining us for a work session I would be happy to have you over. My wife always makes us a nice lunch. We will be getting together this Sunday or Monday.

Larry, I can understand your not wanting to post what you think may be boring to the rest of us.

Thanks for the invite. Unfortunately, the wife and I have enough plans scattered throughout the weekend to make that "quick trip" down your way virtually impossible. Maybe someday.

Just caught up with this thread. Nice interesting project Larry'. Great job with the Das clay'. I used it to make bricks once. It's good stuff. I really like that mud paint. Looks like genuine mud/dirt...

Thanks to those who stopped in.
I painted a number of details today, most are still first and second coats.
This detail is far enough along to post a picture. It is a British Medium Mark A Whippet tank I purchased incomplete and partially assembled. The Kit is metal from Duncan Models in the UK. It was missing pieces that I fabricated from plastic sheet.
The mud is sanded grout mixed with static grass fibers and white glue.

I know it was a mud fest there but I don't think that tank will ever move again.
