Hello friends,

After some procrastination I have finally wrapped up this project. The Caterpiller is from Resicast, while the Pz. IV turret is from Tamiya. To turret I added the Aber turret stowage bin and turret armor, while I also used a set of Lionroar fenders to add a little extra familiarity to the junk. The majority of the wreckage is simply bits and pieces from the extra's box and photo etch scraps bent and soldered into interesting shapes. The soldier/operator is from Alpine.

I hope you enjoy.

Well done! A great idea and layout. Excellent use of objects and varying height to bring the modeller's focal point back to the center from all angles.

Super to see imagination and skills used together.

How long did it take from start to finish?
