Sentry- rickshaw

One of the things that will find its place on the "Sentry" diorama, will be Warsaw`s rickshaw.
I will be using Tamiya`s German soldiers with bicycles set enriched with Lion Roar photo etch set designed for this kit.

Legends Comrade, mon armour will provide the passengers for the rickshaw.

Riskshaws seat was scratch built using various styrene sheets.


Sentry- phone finished.

Telephone body was painted XF-64 red brown.
After the paint had cured i made some wood grain using the tip of the sewing pin. Then the box was painted using selection of oil artistic paints ranging from German Ochre, through Faded Dark Yellow to Dark Rust.

Sentry- telephone.

While waiting for the Green Stuff on the pigeon to cure i killed the time scratch building the telephone.

Sentry- scratching the pigeon.

Using the Green Stuff paste i scratched the pigeon. The tail, and the wings are mae from beer can. Legs and feet are soldered using 0,150 copper wire.

Sentry- sentry box finished.

Weathering of the sentry box finished. I have added few bird droppings to the roof aswell.

Sentry box- gloss and wash.

Box has received the coat of gloss varnish, and first dark wash to highlight the gaps between the timbers.

Sentry box- paint chipping.

I started to chip the paint on the box. This time with no surprises.
Hairspray applied in small quantities allows to achieve delicate chips.
Now i will seal it with the varnish, and use some washes.

Sentry- repaint.

During the paint chipping process it downed on me, that i used too thick a layer of the hairspray.
The paint chipping wasnt easy to control, and i decided to repaint the box.
When i stripped all the paint i had the idea, to replace one of the boards for the unpainted, salvaged one.
