Here is my second work in progress. It depicts a Tiger tank somewhere in Western Germany late in the war.

I like that. Talk about menacing, every allied tanker's nightmare. Any chance of a better photo?

Yes they certainly were! Glad I wasn't around then as a Sherman crewman! I rushed the photo tonight to try uploading it. Will take a better one during better lighting during the day.

Love the backdrop .... the Tank needs to be roughed up to fit in with the standard of the back drop

Right now it looks too new .... loads of dirt and grime and some foliage for camouflage would work wonders for this painting .... the Tank really needs to be something you *notice* instead of something that stands out like a sore thumb

Not just a Tiger, but a King Tiger. Unless it broke down a sherman wouldn't get it. Just going from memory here but it looks like there is more green on this than images I am used to seeing on the Kings.

It definitely looks the part.

Thanks Gollum and Shamrock. Yes the tank does need more roughing up, that will come I assure you! I love adding foliage to tanks and dust ext. This particular tiger has more green than usual as towards the end of the war crewmen would differ their schemes from others, why I'm not sure. As I said I would, here is a better picture of the painting. The tank is still far from completion, tracks and wheels to be done aswell...
