What a great build! Really captured the look of battle weary driver and commander, too.

Well done!

figures and the vehicle.

And of course the base.

Superb work on the painting & weathering! Definitely gives that feeling of fading morale at this point in the war. Great job all around!

Hum... Not enough rusting or chipping!!! Ha Ha.. Great work, just a minor protest for the "over weatherers". You did a really fine job depicting an early panther. I have one in the stash that is destined to be on the Italian front.

Is that actually a DRAWING of the D-style driver's visor in the armour? Neat!

The D and A both had a glacis vision port for the driver, so why would anyone draw it onto the plate? Unless I'm missing something 🤔

So impressive! I feel cold in every corner I see, the weathering on the tank is very amazing, and the mud looks so real, very inspiring.. Thanks for sharing your great job, mate

I believe he means that with the chipping all around the visor's edge plus how flush it sits, makes it look like it is drawn.
