Smoke Break
Ardennes Front 1944
Unit 3rd Fallschirmjager and 3 /sPzAbt 501


Dragon King Tiger Ardennes Front 6232
Four x Dragon Fallschirmjagers to stand on top of deck of King Tiger.
One x Panzer Crew winter dress commander. MiniArt 35021 German Tank Crew.
One x MiniArt 35558 European Farmyard
Projecting twelve figures.

Need a farmer in winter clothes to attending the barn.


Also require that the diorama includes Belgium Blue Cows. Master Box set in stock.

Display measurements are 12"x 12".

King Tiger sitting on the side of the road. Waiting for command to move forward to Bastogne. A road sign behind the Tiger, hints how my more kilometers until Bastogne.
The Belgium Blue cows grazing in the grass, behind a fence.

*A medium size barn to be built. MiniArt 35558 European Farmyard



Paint:
* Tank turret numbers will be in blue with a white outline. Use spraying template. Ref to my buddy Mike. Turret number 311.

*Figures will need minor face shadows. At least 72 hours into Operation.




Weather:
*Mild lower hull mud. Dark Earth color. Mud effects minor. But a lot of focus on the "water spray" marks for weathering ideas. This tank has just been driving down the road, so the tracks are not muddy. Just the lower hull. Think "road grim" is the biggest effect to mist on. And some exhaust marks. Light yellow surface rust on the exhaust system.

Weather Conditions:
*Light snowfall the previous night dump about 3" snow covering the whole ground. Ensure you create fresh track marks into the snow. Also to add snow effects on the tracks of the Royal Tiger.



More to follow.
