Part of a DAK patrol comprising of a PzIII, and an SdkFz 222 with infantry, are attempting to get information from a local Bedouin helped, or hindered by an Italian officer.

Others are looking on in amusement & bemusement.

Stowage from various accessories sets. 

Figures from Tamiya, Dragon, Italeri, & Master Box with some Hornet heads.

Oh my... that's a lot of figures!!

But it all looks good! Like the story too.

 

Maybe just one small thing; the skin colour of the bedouin looks to dark and greyish?

Very impressive!

The weathering and stowage looks really well done.

And the figure painting is excellent.

I really like your modelling but those jerry cans on the turret roof are wrong in so many ways. What was the tank commander thinking?

They do look pretty vulnerable.

There are a number of photographs that confirm they were carried like that.

It was said that they were removed before he tank went into combat.

With the vast distances covered during the North African campaign, which stretched supply lines to there limits, vehicles were loaded up with supplies to keep them going as they did not know when they could be resupplied.

Thats a relief.  I did a photo search and only found one and that just had the JCs sitting on the turret roof not secured so I took that the vehicles was being refuelled a leaguer, well the German version of a leaguer.

Whenever  I follow your thread or view your finished Work,

I always love  your workmanship. 

:clap:

This vignette is PHENOMENAL  and your figures are SUPERBLY 

painted and finished. Your builds/vignettes are always very detailed

and every exacting nuances  of persons character  caught PERFECTLY!

:heart:

 

:goodjob:

:wow:

 

I think you have the flesh tones and skin tones 

absolutely  to perfection. I  think yoj have gotten the Arab Bedouin   right too  as they roam  and live in desert and in intense heat so their skin gets darker; while their robes get dustier. 

I know  :wicked:

OUTSTANDING  workmanship all around.

 

A gold star of vignettes!

 

KUDOS.

 

:worthy:
