Hello!

This is my last work.
Like AlanL, it's the same tank!
"Broken Arrow II" was destroyer in november 1917, for the battle of Cambrai, in a village called Fontaine Notre-Dame.
My girlfriend is born (not in 1917!==) ) and grew up near this village. So... It's a small wink to her.

This is the Takom Mark IV. A great kit! Maybe alittle bit boring about the tracks!

The figure is a D-Day miniature. Another great figures! Good casting, great details.

Accesories are from Resicast. No comment about their products.












Weathering and mud was made with AK Interactive products.
Leaves are made with real crushed leaves, and water is crystal resin.

Great looking scene, everything blends nicely.What color did you use for the base coat of the tank.

Hi Christophe,

Seasons greeting to you and yours. Nice work on the kit, looks great. The D Day Miniatures figures are very good. Excellent presentation as always.

Tamiya didn't provide spuds in their kit which was a pity as they provided an option for Broken Arrow II. I haven't gotten around to a proper home for my effort yet, working on a few additional crew from Stalingrad at the moment.

I have the Takom kit, the detailed tracks should provide an option for a de-tracked vehicle so more fun for the future there.

Good to see you around the forum, all the best.

I agree with all the earlier comments! Excellent effects all around. The colors, caked mud, open door, and weathering are well done.
If that man isn't watching, he's going to step into that very realistic puddle!
I just painted one for the Great War campaign, and I went with Model Masters "SAC Bomber Tan" which also came out a very similar green.
Anyway, thanks for posting!

My name is mud. I have to imagine that the officer would be standing in awe. There is nothing boring about it. It shows the softer side of the military(if it has one). The base is immaculate! I had to search for the open door, even knowing which one it had to be. You have achieved perfect level of subtlety.
