GUEST GALLERY: "Behind The Hangar Doors" 1/48 by JOAQUIN Gª GAZQUEZ

Joaquin Gª Gazquez is a renowned AFV and diorama modeller. He doesn´t build aviation works too often but when he does he displays his usual artistry. This is not one of his most complex pieces but is the simplicity of the composition what I like. It is a perfect example of how to create an attractive piece with a few elements.
The plane is Tamiya´s Heinkel He-162A-2 "Salamander", the Ford Staff car is also from Tamiya. The officer figure is from ICM and the GI figures is a resin set from Total War Miniatures.
Joaquin has published lots of articles in many magazines and recently he has published a guide of how to paint WWII figures and the construction of a vignette. The English and French edition will be released soon by Histoire & Collections. For the Spanish edition you can contact directly with him, is a very limited edition so hurry up!
