Hi, Always a pleasure to see your fine work, not only on the vehicle itself, but the backround dio. that it's presented in. Very good work indeed. And inspiration to the rest of us.

Just one question on the heater fan on the rear deck. How did you come up with this particular set up? Is that the blades of the fan itself without the screen covering on top? Just curious.

Thanks for posting and take care, Sgirty

Sir,

Fantastic model!

You hard-edged the camoflague. To me it seems we almost always airbrush our panzers, but you show it as brush-painted by the crew, as many examples show panzers were.

Your paints are muted. Though Panzerwaffe RAL paints could vary in extreme due to circumstances of application, yours are well balanced. Did you attempt scale-effect?

Your weathering is not overdone. No overabundance of streaky rust, rather a fine wash of dark earthtones. No exaggerated drybrushing to make it look like a model. It is not festooned with steel paint chips uberalles. One thing, did you intend to leave the fan grill off? As the fan is a rusty brown, I am guessing YES.

The street paving stones are not littered with debris, rather the mortar seams are full of dirt. Authentic without drawing attention from the AFV.

I have built my panzers with straight steel where the metal roadwheels rub the tread teeth, but now I am muting even that. My only suggestion is to tone down the bare metal rims.

Excellent work

Excellent model! I have just one question, what paints did you use to hand paint the camo? I am having rouble with handpainting tamya at the moment! Could use a bit of help!

I dont feel i can give any constructive critisicm as i am unable to produce a model up to your standard, all i can say is
