75mm Winter German recce

I managed to get this one finished now and set on a simple oak base.
The intention of this vignette was to depict a winter scene without the use of snow so i had to try to create a cold atmophere, i decided to go for a frosted look and used some glitter glue for this which adds a bit of shimmer to represent frost. I managed to find a suitable glitter glue after looking at quite afew options in my local craft store,most glues contained large glitter particles which were not suitable, eventually i found one that contained very fine silver glitter which suited the job.
All painting is done in acrylic except for some oil washes on the concrete surfaces.
Time to move on to the next project.
