Working title "Range finders...", beute T-34/76 w/Schurzen

I was finally able to find some time for modelling so what I did? I figured a layout for one of my latest builds, the German captured T-34/76 with Pzkpfw III mounted Schurzen. The scenery will be rather simple, plain terrain, slightly steep - early 1944, a recon troop in a Schwimmwagen approaches crew of the beute Panzer with some news and scan the horizon for some enemy movement in the nearby area. One of the recon troopers makes his look through his sniper rifle, or maybe aims a bear in the far distance...? I usually try not to complicate too much and use the figures in simple interactions between them. Must say it's a common thing to hear - "how many pointing at something/looking at something figures have you seen! not again!" but the question really is how many GOOD figures in these poses have you seen? There are some simple niunances of human body ofently ommited by modellers while using commercial figures, especially injected plastic. With self made sculpts you have full control of the process from the initial part right up to the end. Some just remember to not be afraid of trying new things, even if you ruin a figure you can always repair it and with more own input you get a more original figure! 
With this scene I plan to add yet one more to accomplish the uneven count of the figures (now there's six buy real life doesn't like symetry) so I will place yet one infantryman there. The passanger of the Schwimm may change a bit since I'm not quite happy with it's actuall pose. Let's see what I can make out of it!
