the vehicle paint and the figures really set it off. That guy in the blue coveralls is superbly sculpted and painted.

While the finishing is great, I like the inherent logic in the vignette; you assume the tank is in open country, but the crewman standing watching the sky for enemy aircraft* while the commander scans for ground targets addresses this. Articulating the suspension is also a nice touch!

Looks great....but the tank is just a "tad" bit too clean - IMHO.

The painting of the figures is also excellent - I especially like the tank crewman's face. All the elements work very well - Very inspiring!

Very nice. I especially like the figure in the blue overalls, beautifully sculpted and painted (he may be a little exposed if they're about to ambush someone but he is a striking figure).

Great foliage. That is cool

This vignette is looking great!The vegetation is superb(specialy the grass)!.The black high base you have used is the finishing touch imo!I realy like this kind of simple bases.

Cheers,

I like it a lot, when kits are not too realisticly overdusted. But that's just me.
