I really like this diorama! However, my praise and critique begin and end at the roadway's edge. The knocked-out Russian tank side is excellent, but the Pz III and Simca seem squeaky clean (factory-fresh) in what should be Russian winter slop. In addition, the active vehicles seem to be skating on the roadway, as there are no ruts to bog them down. IMHO. Otherwise, this is a really nice scene.❄️

Have to agree with Mike's comments. Also, I don't believe there is any steppe around the Leningrad area. Mostly dense forests with some marshes/swamps.
