    Nice work. I've been wanting to do a studio scale version of the Hoth turret. Nice use of the tank cupola (sic).

    thanks, of course i`m not done i have to scribe more lines and maybe put some figures on it and more greeblies and weather it with some black soot and rust and maybe some oil and grease runs.
    I used a childrens cup from Outback steakhouse and the cupola and gun barrel from a tiger 1 and the muzzel from the droid tank and a machine gun from a t72 and the tube for the cupola came from a push up pop and various springs and such from other sources.

    Yeah, it was. I di have fun and i had a bunch of referece material to work with, and this one differs slightly to the one in the sketchbook, becuase the greelies werent specific.
    I just may do another one sometime.

    Just for a point of reference, is that the same cupola and hatch cover as used on the training remote?

    Well, I just checked Frank C's training remote site. Those parts are from a 1/48 Panther Type G. But I'll be damned if those parts don't look exactly alike.

    Thanks and awseome build up :thumbsup

    Thanks

    Sure can. First i used wadded news paper and then laid down some plaster cloth and let it dry, then i mixed up some Modge podge and some white acrylic paint to cover the holes and smooth out the plaster cloth and then sprinkled woodland senics snow on while the paste and paint mixture was wet. :D
