Thanks everyone,
sorry for the delayed response.
Andrew, thank you for the picture.....just what I was after.

Well, just a quick update on the base..............I rumaged through my building bits and found some stuff that looked like the rubble I was after.
...........................................
Still some modifying with the scaple but overall a good bunch of bits .
I positioned the broken pavement and then tried the tank.
............................

......................
......

I purchased some wooden floor panels from the train shop recently and decided to give'em a run. I cut the sheet up to look like a smashed wooden floor - scaple blade and scissors did the trick.I measured the cut against the ruff position of the tank.
The angles were marked out on the board ready for the white glue.........
..
I then glued down the pavement and some cobblestone canvas print [again from the train shop] and covered the base in a thin film of white glue painted on with a wide brush. I then sprinkled a mix of fine gravel and plaster which was followed by some Verlinden bricks and tiles in small amounts were they would not be covered. I also addedsome ruff broken pieces of plaster debri. Nothing pretty about this stage.
........................................

You can also see the floor has been added as well. To raise it slightly I built some beams underneath [like a real floor] from plastruct rod and let some pieces stick out into the gaps with damaged ends.
..
I then placed some more coarse rubble and a broken anti tank 'thingy' [I would love to know what these were really called].
....................

..

And around the back as well................
So now I have this much done on the base without too much effort!
..............................................
................next is some more paint on the tank with just a touch of detailing here and there to bring up the wreck a bit

Looks great Ian Real nice. If I can just comment on the sidewalk. From the edge it looks like it's just been placed there. Maybe consider raising the floor of the house?

Outstanding work Ian!

Love the groundwork. It really looks as if the building has been pulverized! The wooden floor does look good.

Commenting on the sidewalk, I have to agree with Lawrence. I think the difference in height between the sidewalk and the floor is to steep. What I do suggest is maybe add the remains of the wall that ran along the sidewalk. As long as it doesn’t get in the way of the tank, make it a little higher than the sidewalk, that will make it look more as if a structure was there, and make the transition smoother.

I hope this is helpful

Dave

Thanks guys

I agree the pavement /floor needs more.
The pavement height and the floor will be fixed with the third rubble stage.Iam limited with the floor height by the fireplace level.
I have not finished with the rubble yet as I will need to undercoat what is currently there, then finish the tank, position it on the base, then add the last lot of rubble [which will be over parts of the tank and along that whole section] - plus at this stage I was going to try add the small section of wall [I can't do this properly until the tank is there].
This dio will be different to my others as it will not be about the Tank but the figures. The Tiger and building will be serving only as a backdrop/ stage and the figures will be the centre piece.
Thanks again.........
