Robert,
Great job! Nice and dirty. The only suggestion I have would be to tie down the stuff on the front plate. One good bump and that stuff would all be gone.

Very cool!! Really like the weathering and the beat-up look; reflects the tough conditions of that battle.

Great Job!! I like it a lot.

If I may make a suggestion: Break up the some of the OD spots with a thin "rain marks" of dirty white. In effect, more translucent layers, for depth. I think that will blend the effect and make it better.

Please tell me how you did the icy chunks on the front plate and tarp.

Thank you all for your thoughts. The snow is AK Snow Texture. I will likely add more when it comes time for the diorama.
