I think Schurzen were first time issued to Panzer IV in march 1943… and this one is in februar.

And the division was that time Panzergrenadier Division, reaching Panzer Division status only in october 1943.

Nicely done diorama. Good painting all the way around, vehicle, figures and groundwork.


Beautiful work. The figures, tank and terrain are well done. The base and figures are really well executed and placed. Thanks for taking the time to show your work.
