Ladies and gentlemen,

I am happy to show you my most recent project. This is based on a 1/72 1990s US mechanized infantry soldier from Zvezda. Since I wanted to build a night scene, I scratch-built the night-vision goggles from polystyrene sheet and rods.

The whole project was built and painted for a project exchange with my friend Peter Müller (Yoshi), who loves Zombie and Post-Apocalypse themes. So, I built this little tongue-in-cheek scene which is seen through a night-vision gadget, showing a soldier on his night shift guarding an internment camp where zombies are held in containment. I envision the guy just shouting orders to stay back to a bunch of pro-Zombie protesters approaching the fence shouting slogans like: "Tell 'ole Pharaoh: Let the Zombies go!", and "Zombies are people too!"

Thanks for watching and your comments. Best,

D.

    Wie schon gesagt, ganz tolles Projekt mal wieder von dir. Es hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht bei einem Teil des Schaffens neben dir zu sitzen und deinen Prozess zu beobachten (destroy, erase, improve!). Dass die Schnürsenkel bemalt sind, finde ich sehr beeindruckend!

    • David KuehnPLUS

      Danke, Butch! Ist immer schön, mit Dir zu malen und basteln. Danke auch für die Zusammenfassung meines Arbeitsprozesses - das trifft es sehr gut! Werd ich mir merken :-D Und: schön, dass Dir Details wie die Schnürsenkel auffallen!
