Wow.  Some seriously good work there.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Thanks Tom, some brilliant stuff there.

My favourites were the wrecked T.34, was that real water ? It was amazing. Then the final pic of the crew abandoning the carrier, marvellous.

Yes, the carrier was awesome.  :thumbsup:

Which vessel was it and what scale was the model? There's HUNDREDS if little sailor figures there and it must taken the builder an age to paint them all.  :o

No real water. Don't know what he used to create this. It looks just right.

1/700th?  :o

Jeepers, that guy is some painter! Those little sailor dudes must only be 2.5 mm high!

1/700 figures can come pre-painted.

So they're flat?  :o

They don't look it, but it's superbly done no matter how they did it.

Well, I'd suggest that the PE+paint would be 3D enough for 1/700 scale. :unsure:

Very much so. I've always admired the art of flat figure painting, although they are normally bigger than those ones  :bow:
