    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::)

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

    well hope you like this one,:confused:

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

    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.
