Thanks John...you make a pretty mean cart yourself!!!

Ok...Like I've mentioned earlier my focus is going to be upon the prisoner and the cart. But, I do need to set the stage, create a backdrop. I shaped these from plastic stock and then cast multiples. The transformers are small glass beads on wire posts....



The electrified fence posts will run along the rear of the scene, behind the train car....



The wire fencing is Plastruct mesh that I've cut into length - leaving only a small "barb" of the cross pattern. Since these photos I've restrung the fencing to tighten, and straighten it up....The tracks are laid (Trumpeter) onto the base and good 'ole Scenic Express Ballast was glued in place....



Thanks again,

Rick

Wow, Rick. Your work is always fantastic, but this one's got even more drama and emotion than usual. I applaud your tasteful and respectful handling of an extremely delicate subject.

Howdy Rick,
I guess you already know how much I love this project?

Well guys, every once in a while, theres a chance you really need to take. This is one of these instances.
As some of you might know, Im german and when Ive seen Ricks start on this project, I asked him if there is anything he needs. Somehow, being german, I really, really wanted to contribute to this project, even more since it meant working on something for Rick.
Rick asked me if I would like to paint the figure for this project and I agreed happily.
When I received Ricks copy of the figure Ive seen that it was pretty nice, but I knew that I could (and should) improve it before painting.
So, with some files, my Proxxon with some Bullet shaped Silicon Polishers and Andre Sculp, I began to work on the figure. This is one of the projects where I decided to put my whole heart into.
Well, this is the start on the figure.
First two pics are the figure as received (not cleaned up), second two pics are after I started working on it (still some work left, but Im getting there).








I hope you like it this far and most importantly:
Thanks a lot Rick, for this unique chance!

I'm so Happy!

Finally, you can see for yourselves! Thank you Markus for becoming involved with this project and making the special announcement!!!

When Markus asked to become involved I honestly didn't know what part of the project I could offer to him - I only knew that I wanted his involvement. Over time the project began to take shape and it became clear to me that Markus would be the perfect person to bring the focal point of our story to life. You can imagine my excitement when Markus graciously accepted the offer.

And so, after what seemed like a very long time in the mail a small box containing two copies of the figure finally arrived to Markus this past weekend. As you can see he has wasted little time getting started............

Thank you to all who are following this project.

Rick & Markus

Rick,.. I am totally watching this with great enthusiasm !

I also like the way that you're approaching this often taboo subject

Is this meant to be any camp or a specific camp that you're portraying ( or indeed does it really matter) ?

Cannot wait for the next update

Andy.

Hey Andy,

I'm not really trying to portray any particular camp although the fencing is fairly synonymous to Auschwitz.

Thanks for your encouragement and support.

Rick
