Hello Marcos, nice project you got going here. I like the clay and plaster look that the cork material provides. I might have to consider utilizing this material in the near future to help in achieving these faster and easier results. Looking forward to the progress. Thanks for sharing.

I am not sure about the latticework on the balcony. What do you guys think?

Hi Marcos - wow! This looks great! I like the clear contrast in sharpness between the figures (crisp) and the weathered vehicles - nice! Am looking forward to seeing this in the dio

Cheers

Added a fifth figure to the BRDM. Pictures with natural lighting. Not direct sun light though. Playing with the layout for the dio:

Those figures look great! I've found that when highlighting camo uniforms, Vallejo glaze medium is a big help. I mix 3 parts glaze medium to 1 part highlight color (usually beige or ivory) and apply very thin highlights, building up in several coats. The result is an even highlight across all your camo colors. I'll try to post a picture of what I'm talking about soon.

It's really nice! As I told you before, figs are amazing. I like BRDM's lower side a lot. Very good detailed and rusted.
