That tape is waaaaaay out of scale. Try trimming it down some :-) Looks like a good build thus far. Thanks for sharing your update. "Q"

I like the tank very much. What else are you going to add to the scene? German troops? Allied troops?

Harrison thank you very much for the offer, I'll PM you if my initial idea won't work

Ohhh the tape...its what the Germans used due to lack of materials :-) in 1944...

Hers is my plan:

1) I'll be using the panzer survivors of DML.
They would be situated at the left side of the Elefant.


2) I also plan to use the schwimwag...(forgot the spelling :-)). and near it would be this


I plan to put them behind the schwim.. thing and looking for enemy that placed the mine that hit the Elefant.

Now, I need inputs from you guys if you think that looks OK...

Thanks

Your plan sounds good to me. A little tweaking here and there once you get a little further along. Good luck. "Q"

Looking good so far Warthog. Sounds like you have an excellent plan for this dio.
The damaged zimmerit looks good.

Arvin,

This looks like the beginning of a great dio... I love the idea of an AFV crew escaping the wreckage under the covering fire of the infantry MG team...

Can't wait to see more...

Hi Warthog,

Your tank and dio look sreally well.
Like you said about the mine crater, maby is it a little too vertical.
Mine blow away a lot of ground.

Maby ou should make it larger and.

I like to see more of your progress
