Vinnie: That is fricking impressive. Keep on modelling Brian

Vinnie, thats one exceptional build you've got there. Everythings beautiful, the dust and dirt on the Paras boots are very convincing and expertly convey the mood of the scene. May I ask what heads were used ? The b&w pic is right out of a WWII reference book, kudos. The K.T. is also very, very impressive. Any chance you can make some of the pics. in a sepia tone ? Excellent - Cheyenne

Thanks Cheyenne. The heads are Hornet, but as I keep all my Hornet heads in one container I have no idea which sets they are from, sorry. Vinnie

Sorry Vinnie, so busy looking at your artwork I didn't realise that you had already posted that they are Hornet heads. OOOOPS. Cheyenne

Vinnie I really like this kitty. It's not overly rusty nor battered to the point that the fenders are hanging by a sliver of metal and I really like how you executed the shell splatter...very nice indeed. It's just well executed all the way around. Has good balance in my humble opinion. I enjoyed it very much, thanks for sharing it. Steve

Vinnie, as usual, you did a top notch job on this. I love the shell damage to the front plate. The painting is exellent, and so is the weathering. My only nit-pic is the road, I think it needs something, like a grass strip in the middle, or some sand/gravel along the travel portion. Everything else is outstanding. Thanks for sharing.

Vinnie, Vinnie, Vinnie.....what are we gonna do with you!?! That looks superb and the worst thing of all is I was planning on buying a king tiger, and after seeing your model I now HAVE to buy one. The figure poses look great and what's best is the way you've situated them they really don't distract the eye away from the tank. I also like the footprints, they really set the mud off.

It is a very nice diaorama and the hornet heads have great expressions and are skillfully painted. It is also refreshing to see a Koenig Tiger paitned in Dunkel Gelb instead of the interminable and boring camo options,
