Gundam 1/144 Dessert Dio.
« on: February 28, 2017, 10:40:48 am »
My latest project, started today. I would like to get some experience in modelling landscapes and will build a little desert diorama. It is to receive a dome combat suit and a small convoy with soldiers on a street. The desert becomes a desolation.
The kit of the Gundam Dom.

First work with aluminium foil as the base of the two hills. (The landscape I will represent with special Modelling Putty


The AAVP7A1 stands where the road should go. The legs of the Gundam are where he is to stand later. On the road, a truck and a jeep as well as a column of soldiers will come.

Wow, I never thought of using foil to plan out the shape of a landscape! Its perfect! Easy to shape and stays where you put it. And cheap.....

After a long break the dessert diorama goes on.
Since I had pleasure anyway I have the legs of the Doom made and still by Greebles and profiles improved. In addition, I've still added with a rivet riveting. Hope this is recognizable after the painting at all.

That must be a bit of work considering how old that kit is.

Nice!  Looking at your layout, with the legs, foil, and all, I was reminded of the poem by Shelley ...

Ozymandias
By Percy Bysshe Shelley

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”
Ancient Ogre Proverb:
"It's dark in the dark when it's dark."

Classic poetry (and a good one) meets Gundam (whatever that is ?  ;)). Only in the world of Wiffery  ;D
