Here's some wire and smoke screens. I'm making a YouTube video on building the wire. I'll post when ready. My stuff is in 15mm, but you could adapt it to any scale.

Those are brilliant, and your figs, basing, and carrier model look great too!

Will check out that video when it's ready for sure.

Outstanding modeling! Looking forward to watching the video.

Absolutely amazing. Can't wait to see the video. While you are at it might consider a video on your bases as well.

I will be doing a video on the labels. Some of my basing materials will be covered in the wire video.

However good is the scenic work (and it is) I keep going back to the Universal Carrier at the top and the highlighting of the spring suspension or the kit on the glacis. But this is in 15mm too, not 20mm. Impressed big time and I will learn from that one image at the top. Thanks

Wow. That is great.

Barbed wire is great, but I'd be really excited about a tutorial on how to make those smoke markers.

The painting is superb and the barbed wire really very special.

Best wishes,

Here is my video tutorial on making the barbed wire. It lacks a certain amount of refinement and decency, but you'll learn the tricks. I apologize for any squirrely editing or blurry spots. It's my first tutorial video, it will get better as I go (I think).

Wow, no wonder they look so good! You have artistic and modeling skills way beyond the norm. Thanks for taking the time to make the video.

Warning, not G rated :)
