Here is the resin Armor Display Base with Rail Crossing kit # 2393 from Verlinden Productions. The base makes a nice and moody display to our Tamiya 1/48 Sturmgeschutz III Ausf.B shown here. This kit is very nice and detailed. It even has some resin fiber depicting grass. Is up to you to use it as is or add some static grass to it. I found the fibers quite convincing and to bring a subject without any alterations here, I chose to paint it as it came from Verlinden Productions.
This would be the first time I paint cobblestone on a mini diorama. The question was imminent: which color should I use to paint cobblestone? There are many pictures from those streets in WWII but they are B&W. So, I decided to take full artistic license. The following pictures have the caption of the steps I took and colors I used to paint the cobblestones of the Velinden Productions kit # 2393. In my opinion, this kit is very nice and worth its price. If only they could round up the size of this display to standard picture frame sizes. Just thinking out loud ;o) Enjoy!
