SOLD! - Considering the popularity of the TV show, "The Walking Dead" and the plethera of zombies movies out there, I'd be remiss in not having a representation of the dearly departed munchers on this site.
With this in
mind, I took a few quick photos of a small diorama (approx 6" x 6") I made sometime ago and had forgotten about (ya, I'm gettin' old). Anyway, this little scene is actuuly several different kits I pulled together to create the scene. The zombies & girl
motorcycle rider are from Masterbox Zonmbieland: Zombie Hunter Road To Freedom. The kit has four zombies in various degrees of decay along with a girl/woman motorcycle rider. Oddly, there was no motorcycle included in the kit so I had to find a 1/35 scale
model to fill the gap, as it were.
The base and ruins are from a war gaming company called Verlinden that has dozens of resin ruins kits depicting numerous scene of urban and rural destruction from both world wars. Most are European in nature so if
you want to depict an American setting, you might have to spend sometime in altering the architecture to get rid of the 'European' look.
Me being me, I felt that four zombies against one girl was a tad too tame, some I went into my scrap box and found
a few 1/35 scale soldier figures from other kits and zombified (is that a word?) them.
I also manged to find a 1/35 scale nude(!) sun bather (she's on the right side of the scene) and zombified her a little too look like she escaped from an autopsy
table. On the rear left wall, you can see a zombie soldier chowing down on a leg he scrounged up and if you look through the large picture window, you can see a crawling zombie lady moving in to jon the fun. Hopefully, our motorcycle gal is a good shot.
The photo to the right is the original bare bones model kit. The other photos on the page are of my build up. Note that if you double click on the images, they get a little bigger in size, a feature I just recently discovered.
