    Here is a wedgie that I finished today it is made by Darius Miniatures’ of Poland; I picked it up at Euro Militaire. It is of a Tiger Tank and the Kurt Panzer Meyer made by Alpine Miniatures’ in 1/35.
    I have used acrylics and some airbrushing techniques but I am no pro and still have a lot to learn! I am still trying to perfect skin tones and technique but have enjoyed using the snow effects. Any feedback and tips would be greatly appreciated, thanks for looking. Sam B.

    All in all a great job Sam, but I would say that Mr Meyer's whites are too bright/white. I'm planning a similar thing with Max Wunsche.

    Very nice work. The tow cable coming forward off the Tiger is a nice touch.

    Cool little vignette; the tiger makes a very good background for PzM; the fleshtones seem to be very good to me. Considering that's very difficult to play with whites I think you did a good job on the fig; perhaps bit more contrast between shades and highlights would have been welcome. Anyway, the overal is very pleasant to the eye.

    Just for info and to open perspectives, here's a link to Calvin Tan's interpretation of Kurt Meyer at Kharkov (BTW you may already know this one); I thing that's a great source of inspiration:

    This is superb, Sam!

    I think the whiteness of the trousers does need toning down, but not necessarily by repainting the whole lower half. Maybe more dramatic shadows and some dirting up with pigments will do it, which is probably the least time-consuming thing to do. Just a thought.

    The Tiger is gorgeous.

    Your work is wonderful in everything.
    A ground work of tiger AFV is amazing.
    The wonderful atmosphere is felt.
