Tamiya Panzer 4 with Riders and Tank commander. This is one of my favorite models that I have done of WWII Armor. The figures came out beautifully.

Fantastic figures as you say. This panzer is screaming out for a few trees and a little scenery…
It’s a great build, John. Well done.

Thanks David, I have done a two vignettes with tanks, but just bombed out buildings. Pine trees would be perfect for this build though.

A Belgian myself I very much appreciate this Ardennes setting, well done!
Thank you Michel, Ardennes was my favorite battle and time period of WWII models. I am into the King Tigers, later model Shermans, and etc.
Ardennes was just brutal, dark, cold, and terrible – a metaphor for the whole war.
That is true David. I never saw it that way before, but now that you say it, I can see. 🙂 The episodes of Band of Brothers when Easy Co are in Bastogne are my favorites.

GREAT work on the figures – love them. The wear on the helmets and the camo on the clothing is superbly done. Happy to hear any tips you have !! agree this would look fantastic on a little vignette with snow and pine trees.
For that realistic look on the clothes. I paint the camo or the uniform color all over as is, then go back and use washes to get the darks and shadows, then dry brush to get the lights. It took a bit of practice, but I think anyone can do it.

John, Nice work, a very nice bit of wear and weathering. Well done !
Thanks Terry 🙂
VERY nice, John. The camo uniforms are outstanding as is all of the rest, especially ithe TC’s camo. (TC = Tank Commander if you didn’t know already)
Thanks Jeff that kind of camo is called splittermuster.
