    Excellent - the facial resemblance to Max Wunsche is amazing.

    It's certainly shaping up very well. I agree that the whitewash finish on the cupola is outstanding. I'm not normally a fan of rust streaking on AFV's, as its usually overdone, but you have done a great job in your restraint. I would add a bit more wear to the part were the sprung bracket slides in the hatch bracket, as that sees constant wear, but other than that, a masterclass in subtlety.
    The figure looks superb too, is that a colour or colourised photo in the background?

    Henk,
    thank you for your comments and your advice on cupola weathering,

    actually is my first attempt on AVF, i only build planes..
    i certainly have no idea about Tigers or Panzers, what i do is what i see and watch on videos by experts on this area

    the photo must be colourised, i found it on the web and used it as a reference...
