    Concerning my earlier posts with gun crew member wearing spring camo helmet cover, I did discover this weekend that elements of Hermann Goering Division were using, (what looks like to me) oakleaf spring camouflage smocks, and helmet covers, in Sicily 1943. But, you probably would not see HG gun crew working with FJ?

    Quick review...
    The models arent as exacting as the artillery peice! Some really nice beleivable weathering applied.
    I'd give 8/10, two points lost for the presumably bought models....maybe putty in the joints and re-paint?
    Sky is a nice addition...
    Nice one MM!

    Work on the saplings, they don't grow in perfect lines like that.

    not going to advise changing what you have done but Sicily is a rock pile, next FJ dio might want to concentrate on alot of rock and for that matter if you do up an Italien dio with similar figures.

    good stuff !
