Beautiful work, as expected Your painting skills would make this heap of stuff alone as a perfect diorama with a figure and some background... But of course the LWS will not ruin the overall picture
What sets are the triangular "Kraftstoffkannen" and the wine bottles?
Cheers,
Zsolt

Thanks for your kind words, Marcel and Zsolt

Triangular "kraftstoffen" jerry cans are from Plusmodel, as are the bottles. Labels are from Archer. Actually Plusmodel jerry cans aren't very detailed and needed alterations. As for now, AFV Club also makes also these triangular cans and these are much more detailed (yet, without decals). Unfortunately I discovered this after I had already purchased Plusmodel set.

But now some pictures with stuff in the cabin:

Kristjan, it looks wonderful but that's not how they would stow things. The cans on the drum should be on the floor in front of it, with the smaller canister laying on top. Otherwise they will fall all over the floor and the Captain will be annoyed! and besides, don't block the door! Ask any NCO.

Make no mistake, I like your model. The detail and the weathering is awesome and I look forward to seeing some paint on the outside. It just strikes me from my own experience that this stuff is not safely stowed.

Regards

Thanks, Scott. Your critics is very welcome, I really appreciate it.

I was more or less aware of the problem, while I stowed the stuff but followed mainly the principle of what I wanted to be seen trough the opened hatches. I also guessed that full drums (both, the fuel- and aluminum "Glysantin" drum) should be fairly heavy to not fall over while moving and create steady basis to other minor stuff.

As the model will be displayed not as on the move, but as being stopped, it can be always said, that there are some things temporarily stowed here and there.

Critics about the box of cans on the "Glysantin" drum is good though and I will give it some thought as the roof is not glued on yet. The box should be break off and the damage on the drum should be covered with some cloth made of Epoxy putty. Maybe it's not that bad idea at all.

Kristjan

can't get 100% realism and 100% modeling art in one... maybe this vehicle is on a brake and they placed stuff like that for a moment (=
