Belgian T13, bycicles, and Chasseurs Ardennais
« on: December 18, 2010, 09:24:29 PM »
This little diorama represent an accident: A Belgian Chasseur Ardennais let his bycicle on the way... And a T13 came!!! So you see the scene: the bycicle is... well, out of service; the tankcrew and two Chasseurs Ardennais are examinating the situation, and the adjutant is "gently" explaining to the owner of the bycicle that he will "probably" have some punishment...

The diorama is at 1/72 scale; the T13 is from Solfig; the bycicles and the Chasseurs Ardennais from Retrotracks.
The tree is a toothpick with miliput, with "zeeschuim".
I'm proud to say that it was the object of an article for both PANORAMA (IPMS-Austria) and KIT (IPMS-Blegium)

Oh, I forgot to say that the tankcrew are from Solfig... Not as good as the Chasseurs Ardennais (bad faces), but their position limit the vision of their faces...

Well observed for the pipe!

When I searched documentation on the Chasseurs Ardennais, Mick (the webmaster of the site consacred to the Belgian army until 1940
http://abbl-1914-1940.forum-actif.eu/
...gived me many photos where the soldiers frequently were photographied with such long pipes! As it was frequent, I decided to scratch a pipe: a little bit of sprue + wire an that was all...
Mick helped me grantly because he showed me authentic pieces of uniforms that helped me to find, after some trials, the exact color for my figures.
