    Those are note SS, not common!:)
    Splinter camo only in SS fallschirmjager battalions I guess, but no problem at all.
    Nice Panzer weathering.

    The panzer is very well done.
    Like it,

    Nice little vignette. I agree with Pedro, maybe a Pea-Pattern would have been more appropriate, but over all a nice piece. My only thought would be some mud or weathering on the knees of the trousers maybe?

    I though the same Jay!

    According Rupert Butler book there are not any picture or any mention 5th SS guys wearing this type of camouflage. However, I found this picture in my archives that show us an SS NCO with splinter jacket, but this pic is from Normandie 1944, and at this time Wiking was in East fighting the Russians.
    I know that LAH and Hitlerjudgen used this type of camo in Normandie (jackets and caps) but why? because LAH brought many equipment from Italy in 1943 and maybe some had been transferred to Wiking division?:unsure:

    Nice work above all!(y)

    I like the Panzer, it seems some battlefields.
    But the guys just come out of the Laundry.
    That outplaced with this Panzer. They need dirt.

    ...well I dont think this is WH splinter pattern at all. I would say jacket on your photo was made of italian cammo fabric.

    I couldn't give a monkeys about who wore what camo when!

    I'm going to critique it for what it is.
    This is a truly excellent piece of work. The splinter camo is exceptionally difficult to do and you've nailed it. It looks great.
    The groundwork is also noteworthy and as a tank modeller in my formative years I have to say that armour is stunning.

    I don't know if many people can appreciate the work that's gone into this.
    You've tackled some challenging parts to this and in my opinion this should be congratulated.

    Many thanks for letting me see it.
