At the end of La Grande Vadrouille, Bouvet and Lefort fleed to Vichy France successfully. After that, they joined the underground resistance group against Nazi German. In this new episode, they are under order to back Paris to collect intel, unfortunately their activities had drew some attention of Gestapo, so eventually they were failed to go board their evacuating flight due to interference of Gestapo. So they had no choice but to flee by land: They made up to WH officer and soldier by dressing in stolen M36 uniforms and forging some fake identities and pass-permit, made their way to Vichy France. But at the last check point on a narrow pass, military police found out the IC and pass-permit were actually fake, at that critical moment, Bouvet and Lefort fire the engine all of a sudden, dropping MP on the ground and rush all the way to Vichy France......

For water effect:
Below pic shows that the material I have on hand for water effect:

Started from left hand side:
1. Normal die-casting epoxy resin which is used in this particular dio: 50% resin + 50% harder, mix and stir well then cast it into mold, allow 24hrs to harden entirely.
2. This kind of material can cast out of bottle directly without any pre-mix, very convenient to use but shrinkage maybe a little bit bigger so thicker than 1/4 inch casting in single time is not recommended.
3. Melting and casting, the advantage we can take from it is can re-shape it after dryout by thermal gun.
4. This particular stuff is dedicated to produce some kind of spray effect. Cannot apply too thick.
5. Gel wax, actually I have not test it yet but I believe it can produce water effect as well.

And of course we need to seal the region air tight where we want to cast, yes, air tight like this:


Before casting:


After casting:

Where to begin?! This is phenomenal in every single aspect. The expressions on each face, the whole setup and posing of everything, the construction itself - its all absolutely out of this world.
