calling this one,
Lebt wohl, Genossen; Farewell Comrades ;)
I have enjoyed this build,never done,zimmerlit on a tank before,and did enjoy doing it,
the Tamiya,kit was a dream to go together like most,so no build,or instruction problems,
unlike a dragon,build,need to be a rocket scientist,to read,:confused::rolleyes:
the reason I left the guards off is,I real like how the tracks sit,so I wonted that shown,
and with there camo,being mix match,ding all in white,just did not suit my mood when painting them,:eek::smiling3:

think the little scene say all,about whats going on,;)

well hope you like this one,:confused:

I am not a tank person but I know a good one when I see it a great build and I was starting to get cold looking at all that snow

Superb finish Moni. As always your diorama really brings the kit to life. Very effective.

I meant the Tiger! Can't see the other one - sorry. The picture's too small.:sad:

That turned out very well Moni. The Tamiya zimmerit was better than I expected tbh & I'm glad you kept the rusty look to a minimum! ;) you know what I'm talking about!

One point I'd like to raise though. Obviously it's the builders prerogative to place the finished model on a base if they so desire. But as it's a single type GB, I'd have liked to have seen more pictures of the tank itself. Don't worry if it's now glued to the base, I wouldn't want you to risk damaging it.
