I finally finished my Linburg Rammunition Monster Truck diorama.  The kit was pretty easy and went together easily.  This was my first model with a roll cage and fitting it together concerned me a bit, but it just slide together and required no cursing at all.  What made it best was the $9.99 price tag from Olies.  The crushed cars are my first also and it was also my first time spattering mud/sand.  Thanks for looking

That’s awesome. Great detail on the truck, almost seems a shame to cover it up with mud and dirt, but it works. Great diorama all the way around.

Thanks Doc.  I hope to take it with me next week to a show in Port Clinton OH.  See what I can do with it there.

Great looking build. What did you use for the mud?

I put dry wall mud down on a painted board, then painted it.  After it dried I painted some white glue all over it and put some sand on it before it dried.  I then sprayed the sand with "Auqa-net" hairspray so it would hold some of it peaks an valleys.  in all it took about 4 days to do just the base.

The truck was done in a similar fashion except I painted some mud paint under the glue.

Wish i had a better way to create a "mud" effect rather than using the sand.

 

Thanks
