TDGB Hetzer - vignette done

Here are a few pics of the completed vignette.

Anyway, I started this project back in May when the GB kicked off, and as always even the simplest of projects have a tendency to spin out of control and you find yourself adding PE, figures, more elaborate groundwork and what not...
But I believe AMS was kept under control throughout this project and I am now pretty happy to call this one finished.













I had trouble getting the camera to correctly capture the light colored Hetzer together with the darker groundwork. I have done what I can (using my limited skill in working with digital images...) to make the pictures look a little better.

Any and all comments welcome!

Cheers,
Anders

Hello Anders;

Very nicely finished, my friend. I LOVE the wet look to the mud and earth.

The figures, and the telephone pole add some good height to this vignette. A well-rounded piece, finished to an excellent standard.

Very well done. I love this little dio.

Cheers, Pat

Great great work, too many details, great concept and very atmospheric scene.

Congrats

...what I wanted to capture right from the beginning of this project and I think I pulled it off.

As for the layout and the use of a telephone pole, I have pondered the fact that this vignette may not be the most original out there.
But still it was a handful for me to get it finished. Enough work as it was!

Many thanks, Pat!

Cheers,
Anders

PS. Good luck on your Dunkelgelb StuG III - I really look forward to see you apply your magic to that one.
