    I thought you flyboys would like to see the ground from an infantryman's eye.

    Nice one. I agree with Matt though - if that Pzkw IV fires, the MG42 and crew will be well p*ssed off!

    THX...Good observation, after reloading the tank would surely back off, allowing advanced infantry support. Had I put this in true perspective I would have needed a 2 foot base.

    Very nice diorama. What did you use to create the snow on the ground?

    Cheers Chris

    I don't know what Scipio used, but I do a lot of 1/35 military dioramas and I use Woodland Scenics Soft Flake Snow, SN140. Comes in a 32 oz shaker plastic container for about $11.00 US here in the States, and that size will last you a very long time. I did a 12" x 18" winter snow scene and used about 15-20% of the container. You should be able to get it in most hobby stores, particularly those who cater to model train layouts. One big advantage is that this stuff will (reportedly) not yellow with age.

    Good to know. I have had lots of trouble in the past finding a good "snow".
