Winter scenes can be tough to pull off convincingly, but I think you nailed it! I really like how you've got those fenders mounted separately.

This is a great work of art! What paint did you use for the white wash coat?

Really nice work!

I'm no expert, but I have a couple of small observations:
1. I wonder about the tow-cable being hung on the tailpipe.
2. Maybe the jerry cans should be spun 180° (spout-side upwards) in order to minimize fuel leakage and to aid with grabbing their carrying handles when moving them from the rack.

Cheers!🍺

Really nicely done but I've got to agree that snow is hard to depict realistically sometimes and while everything that you've done is excellent in reality there should be packed snow on and between the road wheels; any time a tank is driven it carries what it drove through. That's it for me. I'm going to file those photos as inspiration for the rest of the kit if and when I build one like it.

Those TANK figures have really good poses! My only complaint with the TANK figures as a whole is that the heads look too similar in general across the whole line of figures and also in other figure lines like First Legion. However, with new heads that give them markedly new looks, they are first class, really! Overall, with their good loose poses as compared to the rigid lines of the Tiger, it makes a great, very cold look and I like this.

This is very good model building and groundwork. The figures are also very well posed and painted, save the headphones which look too large and awkwardly positioned.
The DML kit, however, provides incorrect markings. Photos of "Anneliese" show that the turret number was dark outline only, possibly red - the old Tamiya kit gives this marking, and at the time the photos were taken, it had no fenders.

Thanks Evertons. It is those replies that makes you want to build more since there is always room for improvement.
One remark on my side:
I do however saw a photo with the tow cable wrapped around as on “my” machine.
Thanks again for all the replies, I will think about it a next time
